The important thing to keep in mind about this movie, is to expect it to end as a cliffhanger into the third movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007). I didn't know this, and was a little surprised, but the impact was smaller than when I first watched Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings (2001).

I don't remember the first movie being as funny as this one, but the action in the first film was more fun and believable than the action in this one. The second movie, however, wasn't quite as magical as the first. It has, however, been a while since I've seen the first movie, and this is the first time I've seen the second.

Watching some of the special features got me to appreciating many aspects that went into the movie.

Overall, while the second film was not as great as the first, it's still worth watching because it had a lot of funny lines and some decent action sequences. Furthermore, the music in the movie, like the music in the first one, was fantastic.

After the end credits, the guard dog is seen as the leader of the natives.

Special Features Watched:
Bloopers of the Carribean
: This was alright, some slightly funny things.
Charting the Return
: Spends about 25 minutes going through getting the second and third movies up and running. The main obstacle seemed to be getting the movie done on time. There's various interesting pieces of information such as coordinating the stunts on the wheel and casting of the pirates.
According to Plan
: An hour of aspects went into filming the movie. A lot of what was shown here emphasized location and shooting real footage, that is not succumbing to using computer graphics. Part of filming on location is dealing with the weather. They started with a 200 day film schedule.
Captain Jack: From Head to Toe
: Play all. About half an hour of all the aspects that go into Jack Sparrow's costume. Hat, beard, coat, sword, wig, boots, everything. Every once in a while, there will be mention about how Johnny Depp was particular about or put input into various aspects that goes into his costume.

lol the one part with Sparrow in the wheel is ridiculous.

great movie... only a couple of things aren't funny, but overall great.
@2 hr 20 min, Tia Dalma mentions "At World's End."

Haha, this HISHE (How It Should Have Ended) video brings up a good point. Probably one that briefly crossed my mind.
