Movie propaganda

Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow and is caught in yet another tangled web of supernatural intrigue. It turns out, Captain Jack owes a blood debt to the legendary Davey Jones (Bill Nighy), ruler of the ocean depths and captain of the ghostly Flying Dutchman. If Jack can't figure a crafty way out of this one, he'll be cursed to an afterlife of eternal servitude and damnation. And as if that weren't enough, Captain Jack's problems throw a huge wrench into the wedding plans of the blissful Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), who quickly find themselves thrust into Jack's misadventures.

Theatrical report

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!

Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead man's chest is a ride-and-a-half of swords, monsters, action, intrigue, sailing ships, swashbuckling and derring-do. It's one of the few Hollywood sequels that is as good as its originator. Jonny Depp is the Pirate Queen from Hell, Orlando Bloom is the dashing hero and Keira Knightly is the feisty heroine. The boats! The fights! The cannibals! Woo hoo!

And that isn't even mentioning the CGI: it's damned near seamless.

Climb on board for the ride of yer life, me hearties!

[BTW: "Caribbean" rhymes with "Namibian" - Director of Intelligence.]
