Ewan Ollson’s review published on Letterboxd:
I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt and guess what’s inside of it!!
I forgot how much I loved this film!! I couldn’t remember what was in this film before but as I was watching I kept seeing scenes I remember watching in my basement like 10 years ago. My biggest problem with this one is that it’s about 10 minutes longer than the first and feels like half an hour longer. The pacing in the second act sucks, the first act is amazing I love all the action and all the stuff on the island is great and the 3rd act is awesome I love the fights on the beach that lead to the crazy ship sequence. Bill Nighy is great as Davy Jones who I one of my favourite characters from this series and of course Depp is incredible here once again. This film also looks fantastic, I love how the colours bring us into the environment and sliminess of this movie. The first one is better in every way but I still loved this one as well, I don’t remember anything about the next one (I think) so that’ll be fun.
