ch Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Once again we're plunged into the world of sword fights and "savvy" pirates. Captain Jack Sparrow is reminded he owes a debt to Davy Jones, who captains the flying Dutchman, a ghostly ship, with a crew from hell. Facing the "locker" Jack must find the heart of Davy Jones but to save himself he must get the help of quick-witted Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan. If that's not complicated enough, Will and Elizabeth are sentenced to hang, unless will can get Lord Cutler Beckett Jack's compass, Will is forced to join another crazy adventure with Jack.
|nudity||2/10 After Elizabeth's wedding dress is found on deck, one of the sailors assumes that it belonged to a virgin who lost her would-be husband and became a ghost, which is objected by the captain, who tells the crew that what the dress means is that there is a stowaway aboard, a young woman who is "probably naked." The word "know" is used as an innuendo.|
|violence||7/10 A man has his eye pecked out by a black bird and blood drips down his eye. Very violent, but the lighting is dark and the scene very short. We see a man hanged from his neck by a rope. We also see a faceless man. There is no blood shown. Jack Sparrow shoots a black bird with a gun. After a character sees the two dead men a sea-like creature comes after him The character slashes at the creature, cutting it. Green gooey guts and things that the creature ate come out. There is no blood shown, just green goo. A man has his throat slit. Blood is briefly shown spurting. It is implied that man has his head cut off, but we don't see it, only hear a cutting sound. A man stabs another man with a sword, pulls it out and we see blood on the sword. A man is whipped 5 times and his bloody back is shown briefly. When Jack Sparrow is on the island, the cannibals offer him a dismembered (not bloody) toe. He bites it. (No blood is shown.) Davy Jones' heart is shown, but it is not as bad as you would think. (Not bloody), just like a normal heart. There is a lot of stabbing with swords, shooting, and fighting. Most of the time no blood is shown, and it's not very graphic There is a scene where a character is whipped (off screen) as punishment, we hear lashing sounds and the resultant wounds for a split second afterwards. Jack and the Pearl are destroyed by the kraken. This is quite violent.|
|profanity||3/10 1 "damn you", 1 "ass", 7 "bugger", 1 "bloody", 2 "eunuch".|
|alcohol||5/10 Jack holds up an empty bottle and wonders why the rum is always gone. When he goes looking for some, he runs into the barnacled-covered Bootstrap Bill and wonders if this is a dream, but then says it isn't as there'd be rum. Bootstrap Bill then offers him some and Jack has to pry the encrusted bottle from his crusty hand. Bootstrap Bill then has some as well. Davy Jones smokes a pipe in one scene. Jack and others usually shown tipsy.|
|frightening||7/10 Similarly, the appearance of some of the ghostly and/or monstrous characters, including Davy Jones (and his tentacle-covered face and large crab claw "hand"), his minions (in various stages of fish or crustacean transformation), Bootstrap Bill (with barnacles on his face) and the Kraken may be unsettling or scary to younger kids. There is a scene aboard a ship where a father and son are punished, the son's punishment is to be whipped and the the father's punishment is to do the whipping, although he does it out of kindness and to avoid a more severe beating from one of the other sailors. We only see their reactions and hear lashing sounds, and one very brief glimpse of the resultant wounds. The captain of the ship seems to enjoy the act. This scene can be unsettling and hard to watch Total Explicit Content: 24/50.|
