Pirates 2 movie

Nothing plot-concerning at all. After waiting 15 minutes for the credits to roll you get a lousy little scene where the dog is in Jack's place as king of those people on he island where the Black Pearl ran aground.

My cinema usually drops the curtain right at the end of the credits, right before nbonus scenes come on which is annoying, what happened?

That's pretty crap then, when you pay for a ticket to see a movie you should be able to watch the film right until it comes off the projector.

 

I heard about the bonus scene but it didn't bother me as its not really much but a quick laugh.

 

Watching the first movie for the 10th time I found out that it also has a extra bit that I'd never known about before. It explains the undead monkey in Dead's Man Chest if you were wondering like me.

I didn't care for it at all. They tried to do too much. The story jumped all over the place. I thought it was ending like four different times only to find it was still carrying on, being drawn out until I couldn't take anymore. I thoroughly loved the first film and expected this to carry the same magic and entertainment, but was sadly disappointed.

 

Mostly I was annoyed with Depp's character. In the first movie he was the anti-hero, and though was a scoundrel at times, was inevitably the hero in the end. In this movie he was a douche bag. He had very little rewarding qualities to his character this time around, and did nothing but bother me. I was disappointed that he didn't develop at all but actually seemed to digress from the first film to this one. I spent more time thinking "Why the f*ck did he do that?" than being entertained by him.

 

Also, could the action sequences possibly be more drawn out? The first time the Pearl battles the Kraken (sp?), a good ten minutes is devoted solely to watching nameless pirates being whisked away by giant CGI tentacles, their identical screaming voices trailing off into the distance while water splashes everywhere. Good god. Same goes for the sequence on the beach where the three guys swordfight. This movie could have easily lost half an hour to unnecessary trailing and meandering between the characters.

 

Also...how did the Commodore end up with the heart? That was never explained.

 

When Kiera Knightley started making out with Johnny Depp, I almost walked out. I know it was partly a sneaky attempt to distract him while she chained his hands to the ship, but she also seemed to rather enjoy it and have feelings for him. Will Turner spent two films and nearly six f*cking hours chasing after her ass and trying to save her, only to have her fall for the lousy, deceitful, extremely annoying Sparrow. Well that was fulfilling. A useless twist in the love story, and with no merit. I mean, he tried to KILL Will Turner, or have him killed by someone else, MULTIPLE times. And she gets a stiff nipple for him? Give me a break. Totally out of character.

 

It was a decent movie, and makes a satisfactory job of bridging to the third film, but otherwise I wouldn't recommend it. Unless of course you're more into action and shallow entertainment as opposed to plots with continuity. But hey, there are tons of people like that, and it's no insult to you. Just different tastes and desires of what you want out of a movie. The action does not disappoint, and the CGI is fantastic. But the story itself left a lot to be desired.

 

For action/CGI: 4/5

For plot: 2/5

 

EDIT: As a side note, Davey Jones looks f*cking badass.

When the Will, Jack, and Davy Jones' crew are busy fighting, Norrington heads to the boat and sees spilt dirt on seat next to the jar where Jack put the heart. It never shows him taking it, it's just implied that he figured out where Jack put it.

Hmmm.... Im gonna be brief with this considering you all enjoyed this movie

 

I really didnt like it that much.... admittedly i was the last on the "Pirates" bandwagon last time around but i still thought it was a decent movie... This time i thought it had been stretched too far....and a 3rd? *groan*. Depp was no-way near as good either.... which sucked caus he is a legend..... even though he is better cast as a druggie than a pirate..... and i was questioning some of the action while i was watching...which is never a good sign.....usually action films are so damn cool that my brain switches off and lets my balls enjoy the ride tounge2.gif ... Meh ill stop there...

 

I sure wont be rushing out to see the third 1....

Thats why you have to see the third one..so all thats left to be desired will be filled, sequals usually arent as good as the first, but I enjoyed this one and I'll probably enjoy the 3rd.

I know it was a middle tale, but that still doesn't excuse the choppy story and lack of direction for me. I was expecting more. More depth, that is, not more movie. It was damn long enough.

I expected more to it also. They should have plot points that matter. And a movie without a resolution is just half a movie.

I loved it. I loved the special effects, Johnny Depp's acting, everything. I didn't think Sparrow leaving the Pearl was such a bad thing, he'd prefer his life over his ship. I didn't expect Elizabeth to do that to him, though. The ending was more of a suprise than a letdown for me, it only wants me to know what's gonna happen next.

 

I loved Davy Jones and his crew, they were awesome.

That was shown, when Jack put the jar of dirt in teh boat on the beach some guy started to attack him so Jack dissapeard from the boat, the Commarade went over and took the heart, he being a sly man also got the Chest off the 2 baddies from POTC1 and ran like Speedy Gonzalis, everyone thought that was heroic but he was only trying ot get his former position back. So all of Davey's crew chased him. he dropped the empty chest and left with the heart.

I watched it last night. And of course it was terrifically cheesy at points, and of course Miss Knightley's lines sounded forced, and of course there was going to be an obnoxious multitude of cute and funny pets (the dog, the monkey, the parrot) for family types to laugh at, but given all that, I thought it was pretty good. The Jack Sparrow vs. Kraken faceoff at the end was pure class, but the 18.3 hour waterwheel swordfight put me straight to sleep. Davey Jones' crew was certifiably badass (as was Papa Turner), but Thinner Miss Cleo with the black teeth was definitely not. The main plotline was good, but the six or seven subplots (ie. Kiera Knightley and that dumb compass, her mysterious past, some "Commodore" guy becoming a main character of sorts, and others) were retarded.

 

All around though, I enjoyed myself. As I should at a movie like Pirates.

That was Norrington from the first movie. The guy who proposed to Elizibeth near the start of the movie.

Oh. I don't remember that at all. I was probably distracted by Orlando Bloom's ass.

Are you kidding? It's hard enough for me to get a room with one screaming 13 year old girl, let alone 300. Lucky man.
