Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Source: Catholic News Service
Cockeyed pirate Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) batten down the hatches for another round of high-sea hijinks -- involving a villainous British bureaucrat (Tom Hollander), sea monsters, comical cannibals, a ghost ship and a quest to find the locker of fabled Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) -- in this highly entertaining, if slightly darker, sequel to the 2003 sleeper hit based on the Disney theme-park ride. Director Gore Verbinski delivers more of the same rip-roaring fun as in the original, the film's skeletal plot kept afloat by the deftly executed swashbuckling slapstick, imaginative visuals and Depp's show-stealing performance. Recurring action-adventure violence and peril, including a nongraphic throat cutting and off-screen executions, a fleeting gruesome image, some intense sequences and frightening supernatural effects, voodoo hokum, lightly suggestive humor and innuendo, and a mildly rude expression. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
