Well, although I didn't see the movie, I've read the book and know the story, and listened to the soundtrack. It's a cliffhanger, so it will keep people wanting more... but at the end of the movie...
Jack sinks with the ship & supposedly dies.
This will keep everyone wondering what happens, and how the new movie will begin. The plot is filled with more twists and turns than any movie I've seen in a while. The soundtrack is good, but I liked the first soundtrack a bit better.
I think the movie will do even better in the box office than the first one.
Some very clever lines in the movie. Many gags, and, as always, some scenes from the ride made it in.
We get it in the UK a day before you guys. I'll post my review on ASAP.

What link were you able to listen to the soundtrack at, Bill?
At the premiere they had people from Disney who came down the red carpet every once in a while doing trivia and if you got a question right you won the soundtrack. Pixie Chick actually won twice and was kind enough to give the second one to me for saving the spots for everyone (THANK YOU!!! ^_^). I let Bill borrow it that night.
It's ok, but not enough emotionally charged tracks as the first one. Nothing like "He's a Pirate" in there, which is a shame because I LOVE that track. It did have a remix of "He's a Pirate" though, although the rhythm of the song is barely noticeable, it's too much techno and not enough instrumental.

They were ALSO showing it on a small screen at the Tiki Room Garden. I thought it was boring. The first half was slow. I kept watching these surfers looking for the Black Pearl. The best part was when they were coring the Pineapples.

Well I am here and have only wonderful words to say about the film. I'll make it short but sweet! Johnny Depp once again has proven to me that he is an insanely talented actor- every time he graced the screen, I found my self laughing and smiling. He is an absolute joy to watch as Jack Sparrow- this time around was no exception! THere was definitely more action in this one and I loved it! Who doesn't like to watch an extra sword fight here and there?! The CGI was fantastic-- Davy Jones was mesmorizing to look at! ALl of it was great- right down to the last detail. Definitely worth your while!
I heard a review on a podcast this morning that said Jack was a bit unlikeable this time around, not the performance itself, but that the character turned into more of an a...hole and you really didn't care about what happened to him or any of the other main characters.
Any substance to this?
I'm glad, tho, that you found it enjoyable and I'm looking sooo forward to seeing it next weekend.
