Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest DVD Review

Dec 27, 2006

Last we saw Captain Jack Sparrow, he'd managed to escape the death penalty, win back his precious boat, the Black Pearl, and lift an ancient Aztec curse. Of course, he had a little help from his new friends, Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner. This summer, Jack is back and he has a whole bunch of new challenges ahead. Read Kidworld's review to find out if the latest Pirates flick lives up to first!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Davy Jones' Locker

After releasing himself and the crew who mutinied against him, you would think Captain Jack Sparrow would be living the high life. But instead he soon realizes he still has many debts to settle in the open sea - in particular, a very important one with Davy Jones. Davy, with the help of the unfortunate souls who have promised to serve him, controls all that goes on in the ocean. Those who double-cross him face the hungry jaws of the Kraken - a giant octopus-like beast that can swallow ships whole. The only way Jack Sparrow can avoid this horrible fate is to find the chest that contains Davy Jones' still-beating heart, which Davy cut out of his own chest when he lost the love of his life. Whoever possesses the heart will gain full control of the sea. Doesn't being a pirate sound like a complicated business?

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Love Lifts Us Up

While Jack is focused on settling things with Davy Jones, Elizabeth and Will have been arrested by a man named Norrington, who works for the East India Trading Company. They are charged with aiding a pirate for originally helping Jack escape in the first flick. Norrington wants Jack Sparrow's compass - and he knows that Will Turner will be able to track it down for him. So he strikes a deal: Will, Elizabeth and Jack's freedom for the compass - a compass that will lead him straight to Davy Jones' heart! As in any adventure flick, there are many obstacles along the way that prevent Will and Elizabeth from the task at hand, such as rival pirates, Davy Jones' watery crew and a run-in with an island of hungry savages!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Abandon Ship!

Sequels can be a tricky business, especially when the original movie was as spectacular as Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl. But all you Pirates fans can rest easy knowing that this latest installment is just as good as the first! All of your favorite characters are back in some capacity and their new adventures are probably more exciting than their first. The only complaint you may have is that you'll be left hanging for a while cuz the next flick doesn't come out for another year!
