Synopsis


Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) returns to the screen for another round of supernatural adventures on the high seas in this spirited sequel to the 2003 Disney hit, which re-teams original director Gore Verbinski with original screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio. As Will (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) prepare to exchange vows at the altar, their wedding plans hit rough waters with the arrival of sea-bound scallywag Jack Sparrow. It seems that Sparrow owes a substantial blood debt to half-octopus sea captain Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), and that the only way for the flamboyant sea rover to elude the wrath of his otherworldly pursuer is to seek the aid of mysterious and powerful voodoo priestess Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris), whose ability to resurrect the dead and gaze into the future may provide just the advantage needed to avoid a waterlogged fate in the locker of his legendary nemesis. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Fun, Witty, Worth a Watch at least twice.

    For anyone new to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, here is a list of all the movies in order of release: 1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl 2. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest 3. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End 4. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides 5. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales I would say that the first installment is the best of the bunch, the others not nearly as much. I did enjoy the fifth installment when I saw it in the theaters, but that may be a matter of preference. So the first and the fifth were the strong points of the franchise for me, and that was enough to make me purchase the in-between films just to round out the collection and revisit the stories. Overall, the series isn't bad, but if it can be helped, wait for the 2nd-5th films to go on clearance before purchasing - which they are now, except for the 5th (which was just recently released). The first one is well worth even at full price. Best Buy is the best place to get these because they have all the films readily available.

    Each sequel is not as good as the one before it.

    I love the concept of the film, but the third installment was not as much fun as the first. The jokes are stale, the plots are predictable and I think the saga has run it's course. What makes the film falter is that the human characters are interesting: Jack Sparrow, Barbosa, Will and Elizabeth are great. I love many of the secondary characters, but instead of concentrating on a core group of players we have tons and tons of CGI characters who muddy the waters and big epic scenes takes center stage, while the human storyline and everyone else takes a back seat. I have yet to see the new film, so we'll see. I haven't heard anything about it which makes me wonder...

    I think that "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" was once again one of the greatest Disney films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite Disney films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed all of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films several times and I also think that "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" had a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable action, mystery, drama, humor and suspense including amazing and original personal/suspenseful storylines.

    For all I care, they could have stopped making the 'Pirates of the Caribbean films' right here. Dismally disappointed with the first outing, I figured I'd give this sequel a try in hopes that it would far outdo its predecessor. Well, perhaps my expectations were aimed a little too high, but for whatever it's worth 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest,' allowed for another pleasant nap throughout most of the picture. However, unlike the first film, the footage I did see of this one was blatantly awful, so much in fact, that I didn't bother seeing the third film. Widescreen, ample bonus material on this 2-disc special edition.

    Bought the first 4 Pirates of the Caribbean movies on Blu-Ray to add to my collection, it was actually cheaper to buy them all separately than as part of a one-box collection. Sure, the others never quite lived up to the first, but the cast is excellent, in particular Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush. Check them out!!

    I think the first 3 movies in this series are some of the best disney movies you can see. The main character is perfect and I love a good pirate adventure. These blu rays are super cheap now that these movies have been out for years. It's the perfect time to try out the series and see if you enjoy it as much as I do.
