Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest review
The highly-anticipated sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl came out this weekend, so of course I went to see it. It was actually very good, on par with the original save for a few pacing issues. I’d certainly recommend it to just about anyone on the planet.
The previous film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, was in many ways the quintessential pirate-movie; working in all the clichÃ©s and expectations of a pirate-theme but wrapping them around an engaging plot with magnificent actors, inspired directing, near-flawless special effects and Johnny Depp. Well, expect more of the same with this installment. Dead Manâ??s Chest takes all the pirate elements and clichÃ©s left out of the last film, breathes new life into them and turns them into movie-gold. Who wouldâ??ve thought the lead singer of the Monkees could be so badass?
