Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest (2006)

Film #369

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest (2006)

If there's one thing I stand by it's that Gore Verbinski really knows how to handle visuals. I mean WOW. The costumes,CGI and cinematography are just fantastic in this film. It's a real treat to watch in glorious HD quality. ANYWAYS, the film OK. Rather disappointing as the first film was actually really good. This one goes for surface over substance. It does get darker with the appearance of Davy Jones but the story is just really thin. It's also WAY too long for it's own good. 2 hours and 20 min is a LONG running time. None of the actors really brought anything special other then Johnny Depps character "Jack Sparrow" due to certain "reasons". If the film had a stronger story with better character development this could've been an amazing film. Oh well I had fun with it for sure but here's hoping the third ends this series satisfyingly...oh wait for some odd reason there's a 4th...-_-
