IMHO, Disney 'missed the boat'. The first film was so good, so Disney, I paid 12 times to see it in the theatre, got others to go with me to see it, then bought the DVD the first day it was available. This one, I may see it one more time; I don't know. I wish the audience would have SHUT UP during the movie...I missed what was said in the 'last 30 seconds' of the film because there was too much noise.
The first film, Johnny Depp was "Captain Jack Sparrow". This film, Johnny Depp 'played' Captain Jack Sparrow; and too many cheap script references to the first film. I don't think they'll see the $650 million they did the first time, except for the added merchandising sales.
That opening at El Capitan was stellar!
