Well, first off, let me just say that I'm exstatic to see that us South Africans have the IMPORTED DVD's included in the POTC2 set. The coverart is done by NuMetro, which is in line with the first film's 2dvd release, but the discs themselves are thankfully the UK imports.

POTC2 was quite an entertaining film. It had a few moments that I felt could've been sped up in terms of pace, but other then that, just as enjoyable and fun as the first film. Depp still shines as the brilliant Jack Sparrow, and Keira Knightley gets her fair share of swash buckling in this installment, something that should appease the female audiences, the one's that are not looking too closely at Depp ;-)

On to the DVD.

Video :
Excellent transfer, but not without a small hitch. The film is pretty dark, so the blacks no doubt look great, but there is a slight over-emphasis on the sharpness of this transfer, moreso then on the first film. Overall though, it's a brilliant transfer.

Sound :
With any big blockbuster film, you can expect the studio to spend quite a bit in the sound design department to bring in the best ADR people and the best re-recording mixers. This film truly had a great sound crew. The mix is very agressive when it needs to be, and extremely subtle when the scenes call for it. The DTS track has a marginal edge over the Dolby Digital track, but if you don't have DTS equipment, don't despair because the Dolby track is every bit as good. On the first film, I actually found the Dolby track to be slightly better then the DTS track, and that's a rare occurance, and definitely not an easy statement for me to admit to. DTS is sampled at 768kbps and the Dolby track at the higher 448kbps. All in all, a brilliant sounding DVD.

Extras :
Disc 2 is loaded with bonus content. Gore Verbinski's commentary is missing from this DVD, but there is a writer's commentary. It would've been great if there was a Producer/Director commentary like on the first film's dvd. The content on the second disc is quite a healthy portion of special features. Features include stuff on costume design, pre-production, production, post production up to the point of the premiere. All this is covered in quite a bit of detail, so it should keep you busy for a couple of hours after the film.

To round up, POTC2 is a very good film and a worthy follow up to the first movie. I'm really looking forward to the final installment in this trilogy - POTC - At World's End, which is sceduled for release mid 2007. The DVD is worth every penny, and like I said, the bonus is that we ended up getting the UK imported discs in the local release. In this instance, thanks goes out to Nu-Metro for getting at least one big release right, the first time round. Get it while you can, or before the 2 disc sets are gone forever, like the first film's release.

Review by: Alex Main

This is the biggest selling movie of the year and you know why!

Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow is hillerious and the movie is brilliant. The photography, script everything. This has everything the first one had and more. Remember that this is a different movie to the first one, although it keeps the first ones roots at heart.

The third movie will be very similar to "Dead Man's Chest".

This is more than worth adding to you collection - double disc with amazing art work and slip sleeve.

Just a special mention - this was the first movie with the new Walt Disney Pictures logo - brilliant logo.

Presented in Dolby 5.1 and DTS.

A must have!

I think the second movie was beter than the first one, much more story, action and humor.

I thought the Second Pirates of the Caribbean was brilliant, just as good as the first one.

What a pity - the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie was absolutely brilliant but this one is clearly a means of cashing in on the success of Curse of the Black Pearl. Sequels should not be made for the sake of making sequels - leave the first movie as it is and don't ruin it with a second movie that fails miserably.

This were even better that the first one and I loved the first one.
If all sequels could only be like this.Very loud hand clap.

Really great follow-up - Had more action, romance and drama. Special effects were stunning and the ending was a real wopper. Nice to Keira Knightley doing some action work after Domino let her down. However, she is now classed as a bitch ( if you've seen the ending you will understand ). Overall it is not a cash-in like many have said, it raises the bar on the first one and sets impossible heights for the 3rd next year. I loved the little nods to the first one as well ( EG When Jack sees Elizabeth for the first time - "Keep the run away from her" )

The 2 bad points for me :
1 ) The beginning felt rushed and confusing. Even though as a HUGE pirates I have I did enjoy all aspects of the film, this just felt wierd
2 ) Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow lost quiet a bit of the idiosyncrasies from the first one.

Overall, superb movie for people who enjoy mindless action, sea-faring adventure, romance-triangles, special effects and the dead returning to life ( in more ways than one )

Highly recommended, after all $1 Billion+, worldwide cannot lie.

PS Third highest grossing movie in history

This is an awesome movie. I really enjoy watching it over and over again.
