I SAW IT!!!!! i wish i knew how to upload an audio file, so that you could hear me say, "wow." the word "wow" doesn't cover it. where do i begin? i'll start with the characters.

elizabeth was a surprise. i've always thought of her as the screaming girl who runs from everything. boy, was i wrong! that girl can fight! and she's torn inside. one half of her wants to save will and marry him, the other half is getting more and more attracted to jack. and guess what? she's a pirate herself! i wish i could say what i'm thinking right now, but that would give something HUGE away. let me just say this: she betrayed someone, even though she knew it would mean death to that person.

will was better than the first. in curse of the black pearl, he seemed gallant enough, but a little too wooden and proper. here, he has life and feeling. and he's pretty much the only one who knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. and what he wants is always selfless. sorry, will, but the perfect hero isn't my kinda guy.

davy jones is the ultimate bad guy. his presence strikes you with fascination, revulsion, and fear all at the same time. he makes barbossa seem like a little kid!

norrington is the exact opposite of his character in the first movie. dirty, desperate, and an outcast. and i can't tell if he's a good guy or a bad guy. he risks himself for the others to escape, but then he steals something very important from them and gives it to a wicked man. he has learned that elizabeth will never love him, and he's learned to cope with it. but it still hurts him when he sees her with either of the other two guys, and you can see the pain in his face. i feel bad for him.

and now, the most important assessment: captain jack sparrow. it seems to the very end that all he cares about is saving himself. he seems a coward to the very end. and then...ha ha, i'm not going to tell you! anyway, for the whole movie, he doesn't know what he wants, and i'm not quite sure why. jack always knows what he wants! elizabeth shows faith in him for the whole adventure, but then when he finally does the heroic thing...rats, i forgot that i can't say that! how am i supposed to give my review on this movie if i can't give anything away? i'll do it later after i'm sure most people have seen it. i can't do it now.
