Finally got to watch Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest. I thought I was going to watch it alone…

Captain Jack Sparrow is caught up in another tangled web of supernatural intrigue. Although the curse of the Black Pearl has been lifted, an even more terrifying threat looms over its captain and scurvy crew: it turns out that Jack owes a blood debt to the legendary Davy Jones, Ruler of the Ocean Depths, who captains the ghostly Flying Dutchman, which no other ship can match in speed and stealth. Unless the ever-crafty Jack figures a cunning way out of this Faustian pact, he will be cursed to an afterlife of eternal servitude and damnation in the service of Jones.

This startling development interrupts the wedding plans of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, who once again find themselves thrust into Jack’s misadventures, leading to escalating confrontations with sea monsters, very unfriendly islanders, flamboyant soothsayer Tia Dalma and even the mysterious appearance of Will’s long-lost father, Bootstrap Bill.

Meanwhile, ruthless pirate hunter Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company sets his sights on retrieving the fabled “Dead Man’s Chest.” According to legend, whoever possesses the Dead Man’s Chest gains control of Davy Jones, and Beckett intends to use this awesome power to destroy every last Pirate of the Caribbean once and for all. For times are changing on the high seas, with businessmen and bureaucrats becoming the true pirates–and freewheeling, fun-loving buccaneers like Jack and his crew threatened with extinction.

Following the first instalment, the humour and swashbuckling continues in this sequel. Many jokes were with reference to The Curse of The Black Pearl. For example, when Sparrow met Elizabeth at Port Tortuga. Sparrow asked Gibbs to “keep the rum”, because Elizabeth burnt all his rum when the both were stranded on a deserted island in The Curse of the Black Pearl. Sparrow is still calling Will an Eunuch.

Swashbuckling scenes were among the best stunts in the movie which brought much laughter to the audience. Many times of the movie, you will get a shock and be anxious about what’s next. Johnny Depp is what an actor! Watching it once just isn’t sufficient. Twice, thrice or maybe ten times won’t be… Dead Man’s Chest has good links with the previous and subsequent movie, At World’s End. Sound effects and digital screening at Cathay Cineleisure were great. 4 / 5

Davey Jones: Can you live with yourself Jack? Can you live with condemning an innocent man – a friend – to a life of solitude?
Jack Sparrow: Yep, I’m good with it.
