The Kraken was difficult to animate as it had no real-life reference, until animation director Hal T. Hickel instructed the crew to watch King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) which had a real octopus crawling over miniatures. See more »
After Davy Jones wipes the "black spot" from Jack's hand, Jack looks at it and you can see a black mark still visible on the back of his hand between his thumb and finger. The dirt on his hand between his thumb and index finger is there to cover up a tattoo of Johnny Depp's. It is not part of the black spot, which is only on the palm. See more »
I loved the first movie, so I had to see the second one. The beginning was a bit slow, but there sure was a lot of action. The sword fighting scenes were exciting and in some cases rather funny as well. The special f/x were outstanding. All of the characters were believable, even the computerized ones. The voodoo lady was hard to understand. I caught every other words she said. I'm sure I'll get all of the humor when I buys this DVD and play her section with the CC on! I didn't quite understand the reason behind the part of the movie with the tribal people other than it gave the movie more action scenes. That whole section could be removed and the movie would still flow well. I loved Commodore Norrington in the first movie. I was disappointed with what they did to him in the second movie. I hope he returns in all his glory for the 3rd Pirates movie.
I saw a few young children in the theater and was horrified to think that those young eyes saw some very scary and gruesome images. Please, don't take your children until you've seen this yourself first.
The movie is a perfect cliffhanger. There are enough questions left for you to want to go back to see Pirates 3.
