WillFilm’s review published on Letterboxd:
Wow, I actually like this movie a lot more than I used to. It ups the ante in it's action, character/world development, and even the acting from the first one. Although this movie is pretty long, I didn't feel completely exhausted or that my time was being wasted. The longer plot felt warranted for everything that was going on (unlike the next movie). It's not as good as the first, and it could have been a little shorter, but overall Dead Man's Chest provides an entertaining ride that holds up really well.
Not going to lie watching this movie after seeing Dead Men Tell No Tales earlier today felt like a godsend for the franchise. I could feel the energy coming from the screen in Dead Man's Chest. I had to be braindead to fully watch Dead Men tell no tales
