Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
—second installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series—uses the talents of Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Kiera Knightley, Bill Nighy, Stellan Skarsgård, Johnathan Pryce, and Martin Klebba to make a re-watchable piece of entertainment. The special effects and presentation are well done. It’s a ‘best work for all involved’ film.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No Maybe?                                                                                   

Yes. The CGI, bluescreen, and motion capture effects deserve special kudos for the realistic and startling presentation of characters working this story to its final conclusion. The novel special effects drive the story into a worth watching film.
