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.

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 …

More of a Johnny Depp showcase than anything. The first film is better.
review by . October 22, 2006
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, …

About this movie

Wiki

Loosely inspired by the time-honored Disney theme-park ride, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL is a swashbuckling high-seas tale directed by Gore Verbinski. When Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), an eccentric rogue, arrives at Port Royal, he barely avoids going down with his ship. Soon enough, he's in the market for a new one, but not before he saves the life of Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), the beautiful daughter of the governor (Jonathan Pryce). This act of bravery sets into motion a sweeping adventure involving Elizabeth's childhood friend, blacksmith Will Turner (Orlando Bloom); a mysterious medallion; and a legendary pirate ship, the Black Pearl. The Pearl's mottled Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) wants Elizabeth's doubloon necklace, and when she's kidnapped by the ol' salty dog and his crew, Sparrow and young Will must rescue her and find out the truth behind the ship's curse.

Verbinski's PIRATES is a welcome throwback to Hollywood offerings of yesteryear, fi...
