2.0 out of 5 stars All at sea, 27 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Pirates Of The Caribbean : Dead Man's Chest (Two-Disc Special Edition)[DVD] [2006] (DVD)
The original film was pretty good; Johnny depp turned in another memorable character and we all realised we liked the idea of pirates again. Now Jacks back and so are another bunch of damned sea hands (this time fronted by the squidfaced Davey Jones). There are three storylines here; Keira Knightly (nice face, shame about the flair) must hunt down Jack and steal his magic compass so she can help her fiancé Will (boring bloke), Jack must use his magic compass to find a "treasure" chest and boring, boring Will hunts a key to the very chest Jack is after...so he can save Keira; its all needless complicated and annoying because we don't get to see much of Depp. He pops up occasionally, does a bit of slapstick comedy and then disappears for twenty minutes before suddenly appearing somewhere else in a completely unrelated situation. Indeed, all of the characters seem to have found the ability to teleport themselves wherever they want....a useful thing for the film makers because then they don't have bother with all that annoying stuff, like making the script make sense. Not so useful for the viewer though because we end up with an absolute mess of a film with no structure whatsoever and characters who never appear to be in proper peril. Dead Mans chest isn't a great film, in the same way Spielbergs 1941 wasnt a great film. Maybe the third one will put everything in context but I doubt it.
