Will you be rooting for Johnny Depp or the sea monsters? You won't have to ask yourself that question because you'll be having too much fun in this sequel that out-arrrghs the first. It's "about" Captain Jack Sparrow trying to get out of a blood debt to Davey Jones (Bill Nighy, with a wicked snake-filled beard)--one where he must pay with his soul.
But plot is secondary to the sword fighting, runaway mill wheels, murder-minded islanders, more sword fighting, crazy sea monsters and Johnny Depp prancing around like a lunatic. Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom are here too, being in love and also being sort of dull, but the filmmakers stuck that mushy stuff on the back burner in favor of more cool things to keep your inner eight-year-old jumping up and down in your seat. Yo ho ho!
