Consumer advice: 
Contains moderate horror and action-adventure violence
BBFC insight: 

<p>PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST is the second instalment of the action adventure series about pirate captain, Jack Sparrow. It contains moderate horror and action-adventure violence. There is also some mild language.</p><p>The horror and action here are similar in tone and treatment to the first film, and fans will not be surprised by the content. The moderate horror includes Davey Jones's sea creatures that initially appear scary (hybrid human and various squid/octopus-like beings). However viewers quickly become used to them as part man, part sea creatures. </p><p>The strongest moment of violence is a scene in which Will is whipped by his father. Here, the flogging takes place off screen and we see only the reaction on his face. Afterwards there is a brief shot of his bare back, crisscrossed with bloodied lash marks, before he puts his shirt back on. Will does not seem too traumatised by the whipping and is not seen to be in the least incapacitated. Some of the fight scenes (particularly with a giant squid) are somewhat intense but the men who are caught by the giant tentacles are all men that the audience does not identify with (they are just pirates), and we do not see them meet their deaths.</p><p>The film also contains some mild language such as uses of 'bloody' and 'bugger'.</p><p>12A means that the film is suitable for people aged 12 or older. Anyone younger than 12 may only see it in the cinema if accompanied by an adult.</p>
