Film: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Click for more info

I was disappointed. There, now that I've gotten that out of the way perhaps I can give a more objective review. Actually no, let me rant a bit more.

The thing is that I'm not sure it's even a case of having the brilliant original to stand up against. Unlike other sequels, DMC had a good and recyclable foundation to exploit and all it really needed was a good story to carry it all through. Instead, it's almost like the corporate bosses have moved in and sucked the life out of the franchise. The plonkers.

It's too long (my bum started hurting), not much happens (they even repeat a few scenes) and it's not as funny or magically swashbuckling as the first. A cash in then, which is a massive shame seeing as it was the respect the first had of its audience that won them over.

But I promised to be objective so here I go: in conclusion, the franchise is good enough to make this a watchable film. But still, that's exactly why I was disappointed. Boo.
