The only difference with this review, however, is that it pokes at Superman Returns while showing the Pirates sequel some love.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Early Review
EmanuelLevy will be the third up on early reviews for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and, like the ones before it, only makes me wish July 7th was here already.
Frame by frame, minute by minute, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," the sequel to the 2003 smash hit, is far more enjoyable and playful than "Superman Returns," the new sequel to the "Superman" series that came to a halt a decade ago.
While neither movie is supposed to be taken too seriously, "Pirates: Dead Man's Chest" never even tries to pass as anything more than a movieish adventure. Like Bryan Singer's, Gore Vrebinsky's flick is summer popcorn fare. The other thing that the two movies share is running time: two and a half hours. But that's about it.
Unlike the new "Superman," though, the new "Pirates" reenergizes a genre that has long been dormant in American film: the sea action-adventure-swashbuckling picture that many of us still associate with Errol Flynn's Warner films of seven decades ago, or of Burt Lancaster's in the 1950s.
Summer's most pleasurable movie
A fantastical epic-adventure that moves at a brisk pace and takes audiences on an endlessly and relentlessly wild ride, "Pirates: Dead Man's Chest" is the kind of movie that should appeal to children as well as adults.
Though the review claims that it is not 'formal,' it does go on to discuss various details about the movie and why each one makes Pirates so great.
