I caught a midnight showing too. I saw loads of teenagers dressed as pirates. Someone brought their flute and played a couple of songs in line at the screening I attended

Aaaanyway, as for the movie, I prefer the first film, but the sequel was decent. My only gripe is that the action scenes dragged on too much and easily could've been cut down (the movie is 2 hours and 35 minutes long). Despite that I thought it was entertaining. The special effects were impressive, especially on Davey Jones & crew.

Solid summer action/adventure movie

Edit: There's a bonus scene shown at the end of the credits. Nothing major to the story or anything. It's not a big deal if you miss it.

Saw a Midnight Show. Awesome. The best sequel I've seen (not counting LOTR and SW trilogies). I loved the action sequences and the fact that pretty much all the cast was back. Some of the action scenes could have been cut down a wee bit, although that as egregiously long as Kong. So far, my fave movie of the year. Current ranking: POTC, Superman, and Devil Wears Prada.

I will definitely be seeing it again. Soon. Although, I really need sleep, damn midnight show.

I got back a while ago from seeing it with my son. We both loved it and it is very entertaining. It was nice to see that a lot of the characters from the first one got in the second one.

The makeup and/or special effects for Davey Jones and his crew were amazing like everyone has said.

There were also a couple of kids dressed like pirates in the audience. No one was playing a flute though.

Anyway it is a bit long, but hey I was watching Johnny Depp so I didn't mind.

My gripe is now we have to wait a year for the next one to come out.

Also I missed the bonus scene.
I guess I'll have to go back and watch the movie again so I can see it.

I have a special sorta goofy reason why I loved it so much, but I won't say why yet, because I don't want to spoil anything

going to see it tomorrow I hope

I'm usually very critical of movies, but I know I'll love this one no matter what because it has Johnny in it after all.
