The two sailors quarreling over Jack's hat on the boat, which is then sunk by the Kraken, are from Cyprus. The sailor on the left is Turkish-Cypriot while the other on the right is Greek-Cypriot, and speaks the Greek-Cypriot dialect. See more »

I just came out of the movie 30 minutes ago (as it was released a day before America over here).
The movie is visually stunning - the CGI is top rate and you won't spend the whole film groaning about how fake things appear on the screen.
Acting was brilliant. Johnny Depp once again proves why he's the only man alive who can play the role of Cap. Jack Sparrow. There's a great number of returning characters from the first film - including a couple I was very happy to see again.
My only fault was perhaps that this film lack a certain 'heart' that the first film had, which I believe came because the first film was something very different, which of course this film couldn't contend with.
That aside, you will hardly notice it. There's a good plot, wonderful sets, great acting and plenty of laughs. One of the best films I've seen all year thus far - can't wait for the 3rd one!
