Seaworth's rating:

I know we've all heard it but I thought I'd use the facilities of Listal to accentuate the point.

Since Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was released, everyone with access to a column or blog has noted the very similar plot and character traits with the Star Wars original trilogy, notably Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. This is my take on this comparison.

Have fun.
