This movie has a lot of the typical aspects of a second movie in
a trilogy. There are some slow points that help develop the
story line but are countered by some terrific action scenes.
This movie overall was very entertaining to watch. Johnny Depp
continues in a comedic debonair leading role, with a terrific
supporting cast. I would, however, say this movie may not be
appropriate for some children as there are parts where things
The special effects in this movie are tremendous, just as good
if not better than the first installment. The make-up in this
movie is spectacular. I can't imagine how long it took each day
sitting in the make-up trailer to become each character. My one
drawback to this movie is the length it is around two and half
hours long. I feel could have been done in around two hours.
Overall, this movie kept my attention well. The humor was well
placed. I recommend this movie to anyone that enjoys action
comedies! Even if you are not an action comedy fan, you have
few other reasons to at least try it out. Can we say; Johnny
Depp, Kiera Knightly, and Orlando Bloom!
