I was skeptical when I first heard that Disney was making a movie based on the Pirates of Caribbean ride in Disney. However, this series has exceeded all expectations. It's a funny, swashbuckling adventure. The plot is basically an excuse to give the pirates as much screentime as possible, but it works well enough and has enough suspense to keep viewers entertained. Johnny Depp really carries the movies as Captain Jack Sparrow, the witty, amoral pirate captain. Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightly are …

Hands down one of the best movies of the 21st century. Johnny Depp is unbelievable. The sequels, however....not so much.

Surprisingly, a very enjoyable film, mainly due to wonderful performances by Johnny Depp & Geoffrey Rush. Keira Knightley's not bad either!

In 2003 when Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl first came out, it was hard not to be a little skeptical.  In the first place, it was based off of a themepark ride.  "Is Disney really drawing ideas from a theme park ride?" I wondered.  When I first heard this, my thought was that it must've been a joke.  I told friends and family alike that this couldn't be a good idea for a movie.  It's somewhat cheesy title didn't help much …

Starting in the late 1990's, Disney's theatrical releases gradually lost the popularity and stature they once held. Outside of Pixar, Disney could not come up with the big blockbusters that they used to produce on an annual basis. Then came 2003 and the Pirates of the Caribbean. Coming out around the 4th of July weekend, this movie combines all the essential elements needed for a great movie: good acting, a setting few can ever experience, grand action scenes, unique dialog, hair raising adventure, …

This film is a pirate movie in true Monkey Island style. In case you've never played that game it means lot of fun, crazy pirates, a beautiful lady and a bunch of zombie like pirates. I must congratulate the people who did this film. To make a movie based on a theme park ride is pretty risky. And the fact that it is positively excellent amazes me, and credit is due to the filmmakers. I'm impressed.    This film is a thrill ride, an action adventure of the classic formula; a dumb …

Pros: Everything.     Cons: Why is the rum always gone!?     The Bottom Line: Aye. Sea turtles.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. After reviewing the second movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, I realized I was doing things a little backwards. So I decided to plop down, pop in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and enjoy the first run of Captain Jack Sparrow …

"Pirates of the Caribbean-The Curse of the Black Pearl" is a relentless action adventure that is thoroughly entertaining. The audience is seldom left to catch its breath scene for scene that cleverly reinvents swashbuckling. The dueling scenes are inventive and the cinematography and choreographing of battles are superb. Captain Jack (Johnny Depp) creates entertainment par excellence as the funny pirate, and Elizabeth (Keira Knightly) is captivating. We have constant changing hands from the British …

"Pirates" is a fun romp of a film. It has to be considering it is based on the amusement park ride of the same name. Johnny Depp does a good job as Captain Jack Sparrow. He seems to be about one swig of rum away from oblivion throughout the whole film. Although most folks applaud Depp as the standout performer in this movie, the entire cast is deserving of accolades. Although most of the characters are pretty stock, it's how they are played that makes this film so wonderful. The acting is intentionally …

Having thoroughly enjoyed the ride at Disneyland on numerous occasions, I expected to have a great time seeing this movie and was not disappointed...except by its length which is about 15-20 minutes too long. Otherwise, great entertainment. Faithful to the pirate tradition, Depp almost immediately steals this film and clutches it to his heart until the final scene. Credit Rush with a formidable challenge to Depp's idiosyncratic performance. Having already stolen Jack Sparrow's ship (what else? The …
