Anybody seen this movie yet? I went on Saturday and was hugely disappointed and annoyed!
In a nutshell:
Too much fecking Orlando and Keira, not enough Johnny.
There's no proper story or character development. Capt. Sparrow looks comes across like a cowardly idiot and sidekick to Will Turner.
They bring back no less than 9 character from the first movie!
And it seems to be aimed at the 1st crush age group...

There are some good scenes in it, but the whole thing seems episodical with overlong sequences that add nothing to the movie at all and gags that don't work.

And the dialogues are wobbly and very often serve to explain what's going just to make sure that all of the audience can follow the story and doesn't have to use any braincells.

And if you hear about that mysterious 'treat' after the credits. It's NOT worth it, I stuck around for 10 minutes and you get a 10 second clip that's neither funny nor original.

What did you think of it? They keep comparing it to Star Wars, so in that case this would be more like 'Phantom Menace' than 'The Empire strikes back'.

I got a copy on DVD in the weekend, but haven't watched it yet.
good to hear that there is loads of Keira, in it ;)

Hold yer horses, luvvie, it isn't confirmed yet. The keefer is recovering from a head injury after falling out of a tree... They are only saying they have been talking to him and they would love to have him in it. Haven't heard any confirmation yet.

Having a copy of a movie 2 days after it hits the public is very illegal! Make that 50 lashes with a wet noodle!!!
