Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006)

This sequel in a sentence—Overlong action sequences, a mockery of indigenous people, a surprise ethical dilemma with romantic benefits and consequences, and CGI Bill Nighy.

Regan Humphrey

After the payment of his soul to Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) comes due, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) enlists the help of a yet again desperate William Turner (Orlando Bloom). Finding the locked-and-hidden-away heart of Davy Jones is the only end to the captain’s plight that doesn’t involve death by kraken, an eternity of servitude, or giving up piracy.
