Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man’s Chest
Fun, light, adventurous – and Johnny Depp! The special effects are effectively creepy – Bill Nighy is Davy Jones, the villain with the octopus face – will this be an award for make-up or special effects? Somehow he acts through all this and it works. Orlando Bloom is back as Will, with a little more depth and the same boyish charm. Keira Knightly is the our heroine – appropriately spunky and proud, strong and brave. And Captain Jack Sparrow steals the show – that Johnny Depp just gets better and better. Loved his make-up here. The 3 are on a mission to find the Dead Man’s Chest, the owner of which controls the sea.
I was prepared that there really is no ending to this movie so I wasn’t disappointed. It clearly is a cliff hanger, meant to keep us going until Memorial Day weekend 2007. It’s going to be good, I can’t wait!
