Shiver me timbers, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp - CHARLIE & THE CHOLOLATE FACTORY, ED WOOD) returns in this rip-roaring, sea-faring sequel to the colossal hit, CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL. Reunited with Will Turner (Orlando Bloom - KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, TROY) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley - PRIDE & PREJUDICE, DOMINO), Sparrow must face his greatest adversary yet – the nautically naughty Davey Jones (Bill Nighy – LOVE ACTUALLY, THE GIRL IN THE CAFE). Directed by Gore Verbinski (THE RING, MOUSE HUNT), DEAD MAN'S CHEST is every bit as exiting as it's predecessor and sets the scene for part three in the trilogy, AT WORLDS END.

Gore Verbinski, the director, has an appropriate sense of mischief, as well as a gift, nearly equaling those of Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg, for integrating CGI seamlessly into his cinematic compositions.
New York Times
Johnny Depp is back in prime form as Capt. Jack Sparrow, the most subversive hero ever in a Disney movie. [...] You can't take your eyes off him.
Depp is mostly great here, too, playing for laughs, which he easily gets, but also hinting more than previously at a sinister, less whimsical side to Jack.
