Oh, there is so a SPOILER ALERT on this post.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was a bit too hyped, à mon avis. The plot line was not as tight as the first one. I was never endeared enough to Cap'n Jack to care that the Kraken ate him (uh huh, sure it did), and I didn't particularly care for the sappy story lines that didn't even make much sense. Why was everyone so enthusiastic about agreeing to bring Jack back? The chemistry between William and his father on Davy Jones's ship was lacking. And, why the feck was it so easy for William to steal the key? C'MON! I also did not appreciate the implication of rape that would have occurred if the sea-phantoms had not appeared to interrupt armed-with-swords Ragetti and Gibbs as they drooled and poppeted over the weaponless Elizabeth on the island. I still don't understand the sexual tension between Elizabeth and Jack, it just wasn't played up correctly for me. I understand intellectually that his bad boy ways attracted her to him, but I didn't feel it. My favorite part was watching Davy Jones's face squiggle around – very realistic!
Rating: C+ for plot. A- for visual. B for entertainment value.
