Decent sequel but enhanced by Blu-Ray

on 1/8/2008

The movie is a good romp but an even sillier story than the original. Dark scenes are well rendered in Blu-Ray with little noise. Skin tones and texture in close up shots are amazing compared to regular DVD. Only on the CGI did I find that Blu-Ray added little over DVD. Blu-Ray definitely added to the enjoyment of the movie.

Editors Note
Note The second part of a trilogy, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST is a fantastic tale of pirates, love, and the supernatural. Blacksmith Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and his upper-class love Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) are preparing to wed when they are confronted with a warrant for their arrests because they helped the notorious pirate Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) escape the authorities. Their only choice for a pardon is to find Jack and return to Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) with the flamboyant captain's compass. Will's attempt to track Jack down, however, becomes an adventure unto itself: Jack is being held captive on an island where the natives think he is a god. To make matters worse, the infamous Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) and his Flying Dutchman crew are after Jack, seeking his soul to repay a debt. With his beard of tentacles and a lobster claw for a hand, heartless Jones is no mere mortal. He and his men are slowly evolving, taking on the attributes of various sea creatures, and with the help of a giant sea monster, the Kraken, they rule the waters.^Seeking respite from his fate with Davy Jones, Jack enlists the aid of Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris), a practitioner of the supernatural, in an effort to locate the Dead Man's Chest that supposedly contains Jones's still-beating heart. Whoever possesses the heart controls Jones, and thereby controls the seas. And so the adventure continues as Jack, Will, and the Black Pearl crew track down the Flying Dutchman in search of redemption. This rollicking summer adventure, directed by Gore Verbinski (THE WEATHER MAN, THE RING), features multiple intersecting storylines, unique stunts, and a pithy script that lets each main character shine, while the costumes and makeup for Jones and his sea creature crew are nothing short of spectacular.
New York Times "Gore Verbinski, the director, has an appropriate sense of mischief, as well as a gift, nearly equaling those of Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg, for integrating CGI seamlessly into his cinematic compositions." 07/07/2006 p.E8
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Depp's] Sparrow is even more engaging than he was three years ago..." 08/01/2006 p.39
Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "Johnny Depp is back in prime form as Capt. Jack Sparrow, the most subversive hero ever in a Disney movie....You can't take your eyes off him." 08/10/2006 p.112
Sight and Sound "Depp is mostly great here, too, playing for laughs, which he easily gets, but also hinting more than previously at a sinister, less whimsical side to Jack." 09/01/2006 p.122
Ultimate DVD "[An] unstoppable sequel....As Jones returns from the deep to claim his deadly debt, our plucky heroes try to avoid being sent to a watery grave." 08/01/2006 p.62
Premiere "[The] two-and-a-half-hour extravaganza entangles the three protagonists' lives again and offers everything from a grand bar brawl to a three-way sword fight on a spinning wheel to the attack of a ship-swallowing Kraken." 12/01/2006 p.131

Review Depp is in peak form again, burying himself in the part and making the Captain the most dashing rogue this side of Han Solo...In essence, Dead Man's Chest gives us an opportunity to join old friends on a new adventure that isn't substantially different from the old one. Many of the same elements are here - ghost ships, the walking dead, hidden treasure - and that's all right because it's part of what we might now refer to as the "Pirates of the Caribbean formula." The slow, uneven beginning is more than compensated for by the rousing climax, and the last scene promises more of the same the next time around, with possibly greater things to come.

Review As brisk, busy and inconsequential as you would expect from a film based on a Disneyland ride -- and a sequel at that -- "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" is pure cinematic junk food...Mounted with all the color of a costume ball and directed like a "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-styled swashbuckler free-for-all, it follows a video-game logic to reunite all the cast members and send them bouncing around the Caribbean in another scavenger hunt, escaping one scrape after another by the skin of their scurvy teeth...Verbinski, Depp and company just want to make it the best ride you've had all summer.
