Captain Jack Sparrow joins us again, in a darker and (in my honest opinion) better Pirates of the Caribbean. Women all over rejoiced as two of hollywood’s pretty men return to the big screen in swashbuckling glory to help free the dear captain from a debt owed to the infamous Davy Jones.

Pirates 2 is a dark movie, I am surprised that Disney has it in them to make a movie of this caliber but it is a good thing, believe me. After ridding himself of the undead crew of the original movie, Captain Jack Sparrow finds himself in trouble again when he is reminded that he owes his soul to Davy Jones. A mix of the devil and the sea, Davy is a broken-hearted old sailor who locked his heart away a millenia ago, and has become a lich of sorts who leads a crew of lost souls in a dead ship within dark waters. At Jones’ disposal is the legendary Kraken, a sea beast of myth that tears ships apart like mere paper. Truly Davy Jones is not the type of devil anyone would want to cross but our fiend Jack has managed to piss him off and is forced to spend the length of the movie trying to avoid him.

This movie was well written and very entertaining, the slender but beautifully tanned Keira Knightley returns with a little more fire than the first and with a little extra sexiness that was missing in the first installment. Many of the pirates from the first appear briefly in this movie and the sequel ties in nicely with the first. If you have any doubts on this movie, dispel them now and check it out, it is a wild sword clashing ride with a comical shadow over a really dark movie. I loved it, and I think you will too.
