Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
I figured that we would have received some major reviews for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek and Ebert & Roeper by the time the Fourth of July closed out. It turns out that this is not the case and we will therefore continue to stick with the first impressions of the online publications.
AintitCool has been drooling all over the film since their early screenings and, for the most part, the rest of the internet publications have agreed with them; except that negative review we were alerted to a couple days back (here).
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Early Review
The general opinion (so far) is this -- either you are going to greatly enjoy the film and conclude the original was slightly better or you are going to love the film and conclude that Dead Man's Chest tops the original in just about every way. The good people over at Joblo chose the latter.
Looks like Disney hit the lotto with this franchise. Not only have they snagged three ultra-hot actors to star in their pirate trilogy, but they’re running an “all ages” gamut that would have everyone from my granny to my parents to my drinking buddies, my sister and her gossipy friends and even soccer moms and asshole dads, loving this shit! It’s the ultimate summer action-adventure creature-feature with tons of action, plenty of adventure, oodles of fun, a tinge of romance, a gaggle of creepy underwater pirates, monsters and anything else you could imagine stuffed inside a two-and-a-half hour fun-ride that tops its predecessor in pace, action, special effects and ultimately (for me, at least), entertainment.
This is the movie that everyone has likely been waiting for all summer, so that they can hang back, roll a J, swig a Coke, slap some nachos down their throats and make out with their better half, as they watch an all-out bag o’ cinematic fun unroll before their eyes.
Expect one or two more reports on Dead Man's Chest soon!
