More Info:
  • Peter Travers

    Lively is an odd word for something called Dead Man's Chest, but lively it is. You won't find hotter action, wilder thrills or loopier laughs this summer.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Two of the big action set-pieces easily outdo anything from the previous edition.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    It's too long, unnecessarily complicated and often silly, but Gore Verbinski's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is still the purest popcorn entertainment of the summer.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    It does deliver a combustible combination of ingredients for a summer blockbuster: a cornucopia of action and dazzling effects, some raucous humor and a large dose of Depp's winning charm.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The slow, uneven beginning is more than compensated for by the rousing climax.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Sufficiently resembles the first film that the heartiest fans should be content.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Depp is the comic gel that holds the whole enterprise together. The performance is a total delight that somehow combines Bugs Bunny, Peter Pan and Charlie Chaplin.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    A collection of swashbuckling set pieces with the hustle of a vaudeville show.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    It's all a bit much, yes, a bit exhausting, that's true, but then why on earth would anyone expect otherwise?

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The movie's gross-out effects are impressive but wearying. How apt that the director's name is Gore.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    Verbinski, Depp and company just want to make it the best ride you've had all summer. If that's all you demand of a frothy summer blockbuster, then this delivers the goods.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    This chest is overfilled with exposition and physical comedy, without a doubloon's worth of the scary suspense that made the laughs in the first one such brilliant comic relief.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    You can't beat on Dead Man's on value-for-money terms, but it's like an all-you-can-eat buffet -- everything's tasty, the surfeit is sickening.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Again, as with "Star Wars," the interest lies at least as much in the set design and costumes as the narrative.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The summer's most anticipated film, and it gives fans what they want - then more of what they want, and more, and more, until gluttony becomes force-feeding.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    Too long, and too wrapped up in its various plot contrivances to notice it’s veering off course. But Jack just about pulls the wheel back, aided by Verbinski’s flair for cartoonish comedy action.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley manage to sparkle, but this overstuffed sequel is no treasure. Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    Even more of a party-hearty-Marty potlatch of silliness than its predecessor. The franchise having been established, Verbinski, Bruckheimer, and Co. have been liberated to indulge in absurdities, pile on the so-old-they're-new-again clichés, and make jokes at their own expense.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Far too long, but thanks to Depp--and to Bill Nighy, properly mean beneath his suckers and blubber--it swerves away from the errors committed by the other big movies this summer.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    The first of two sequels shot in immediate succession, Dead Man's Chest bears the unenviable burden of racking the pins for both movies, which leaves it with precious few opportunities to have a little fun of its own.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The worst kind of sequel -- the kind that exists only to give you more-more-more of what you liked the first time around, without ever justifying its own existence. This lavish, superbly designed film goes on for an exhausting 2½ hours.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    A long, tedious and convoluted follow-up to 2003's rollicking high-seas hit, The Curse of the Black Pearl, this second installment in the promised trilogy lacks the swash and buckle of the original. And then some.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ethan Alter

    Dead Man's Chest is best summed up by the scene where Sparrow and Will battle each other atop a runaway water wheel. Like the characters, this movie is just running in circles.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Exactly the kind of thing most of us have in mind when we think "popcorn movie." It's largely brainless, pretty to look at, and produced solely as a lead-in to another moneymaking sequel for Disney.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    Intermittently fun and high-spirited, Dead Man's Chest sags under the weight of its own running time.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    It batters you with novelty and works so hard to top itself that exhaustion sets in long before the second hour is over.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The effects are breathtaking, and much of the action is choreographed with energy and wit. (A chase sequence on a cliff uses visual gags that defy the laws of physics, Wile E. Coyote-style.) But all of these moments bob on the film's slick surface like so much flotsam. Without a beating heart at its center, this Chest feels empty indeed.

    Slate Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    There is a sense of bloat and where-do-we-go-from here aimlessness to this unconscionably protracted undertaking.

    Variety Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    What do we want in a sequel? Just a little taste of the original or a triple serving piled high? Dead Man's Chest opts for the latter. This Disney movie isn't a follow-up to the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" so much as its empty-calorie clone.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    I was worn down by the excess: Depp's fruity impersonation of Keith Richards (or William F. Buckley) as pirate Jack Sparrow; too many bottomless chasms on an island with too many jungle savages (after the fashion of Peter Jackson's King Kong); Bill Nighy playing too squishy a villain with a beard of too many crawling octopus tentacles; too much violence, pop nihilism, and sick humor.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Infernally boring for much of its running time, and then, just as the pulse starts to quicken: To be continued.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Whatever goodwill one harbored toward the first Pirates film is quickly dashed by its sneering successor, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which is less a film than a two-and-a-half-hour trailer for the final installment in this accidental trilogy.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A noisy and lazy stopgap movie that goes absolutely nowhere and takes 2 1/2 hours to get there.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Yes indeed, Pirates 2.0 is a theme ride, if by ride you mean a hellish contraption into which a ticket holder is strapped, overstimulated but unsatisfied, and unable to disengage until the operator releases the restraining harness.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    The second movie, Dead Man's Chest, is everything you feared the first would be: a theme-park spectacle lasting 2 1/2 hours.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    More than the usual bad or even numbingly horrible movie. It's an amalgam of many of the modern cinema's worst tendencies and modern filmmaking's most unfortunate misconceptions.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The cast is entertaining, though with an asterisk, and the special effects are often spectacular, though sometimes not.
