The movie is itself is good and funny at times with certain events making it all fun plus they did a good job telling adding more to the story of Jack Sparrow and some of the others. But I felt that you could feel it was number 5 movie and not a second movie or maybe even the first movie as many of the things could have happened in the first one. That they told the backstory of Jack Sparrow, Still funny, felt a bit repeat


4 out 6 stars as it was a bit too much of the same at times


Sure it can be watched again but will wait for the DVD to do that.

See you around
