Dead Man's Chest is the second installment in the Pirates trilogy, and it points to good things for the final movie (already filmed with Dead Man's Chest). Everything good about the first movie returns, sometimes literally, with throwbacks to the first one and even some important characters making a surprise return (wait until the end, then you'll understand). The acting is good, and Depp continues to shine as Jack Sparrow. However, it did feel that some of the Jack mannerisms were a bit forced, which I assume would be the director trying to exploit everyone's liking for Depp's eccentric role. Nighy plays Davey Jones well, albeit he is masked under a Gollum-esque disguise of special effects. My only warning is that if you don't like cliff-hangers, you might be disappointed with the ending (which, in my opinion, was well-done). That, and I also thought the characters had diminished roles form the first one, seeing as we already knew who they were, so it didn't have the fun of learning all their quirks and whatnot.
