Aroview: Smash sequel-equal, which replicates the swashbuckling wit, quirkiness and visual excitement of its predecessor, again following the buccaneer-age adventures of mischievious pirate Jack Sparrow (Depp), here tangling with the East India Company, oceanic monsters and most forbodingly, Davy Jones (Nighy) - the decaying, squid-faced captain of the otherworldly 'Flying Dutchman' ship.
Following a 'more is more' strategy, the filmmakers have crammed a staggering plethora of swordfights, thrilling set-pieces and visual extravagance in the two-and-a-half hour running time, and viewer exhaustion and over-familiarity remain something of a danger. Even so, the old-fashioned 'Matinee Special' quality ensures this lunatic entertainment delivers the booty, right up to the cliffhanger finale.

3 stars (Good Enough) One of those films that you can miss twenty minutes and it wouldn't matter as what you've missed is what you are seeing now.The supporting cast are very good and the non stop action is never boring - hard to dislike.~tubbs
