Pirates Of The Caribbean Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Plot
Just as they’re about to be wed, Eilzabeth (Knightley) and Will (Bloom) are clapped in irons by East India honcho Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) for aiding the escape of one Jack Sparrow (Depp). Beckett makes Will an offer: bring Jacks’ compass to him, and he’ll free Elizabeth. Jack, meanwhile, is having his own problems, with tentacled nasty Davy Jones (Nighy).


Verdict
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.
