Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006)

So onwards I went and watched part 2 of the Pirates series and this is at least the third time I have seen this film and sometimes on multiple viewings you get more from a film. However I did not get anything from this it is obviously a filler film to get to the third film as there are a couple of stories that do not have a conclusion at all. You have Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly back and have Bill Nighy and Stellan Skarsgard stepping in as Davy Jones and Bootstrap Bill respectively and they are all fine.

It seems to be the story that is a struggle, they have about 3 plots going on from the opening with Captain Jack in a coffin and Will and Elizabeth getting married and then Jack on an Island as a chieftain and none of it really matters, it makes the whole film very long and if you think about the film and the point there are so many thoughts are what is the point questions raised, it is not obvious or needed.

I cannot fault the actors but this is 2 stars, there are some cool scenes and set pieces but overall it is not enough to save this from being a waste of time.
