The actors' performances are charismatic and the story is as grand scale as the settings.

I like pirates who act this way. I like Depp who acts as a pirate acting that way. The story is great and the humor even greater.

Best Pirate Movie EVER!

KingInTheNorth - wrote on 06/24/2013

When I first read "Pirates of the Caribbean" is from the producers of "Armageddon" and "Pearl Harbour" I thought: "No, I never gonna watch this movie!" Well, things have gone far...

There are a lot of pirate movie which were blockbusters but didn't enjoy me. "Pirates of the Caribbean" was just awesome.

Orlando Bloom... well he did a good job in this movie but let's don't talk about the sequels.
Geoffrey Rush, Keira …

Most time piece movies nowadays are serious dramas (or awful like the recent Three Musketeers re-make.) but to have a rousing action/adventure set in a different age makes the mundane seem more magical, and the magical aspects of the film seem …

The Curse of the Black Pearl is the first installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean stories. It is a hugely entertaining, comedy-cum-action-cum-horror romp, starring Johnny Depp, arguably the finest Hollywood actor of his generation and his character (Jack Sparrow) is one of the most memorable and fascinating characters ever. We catch our first glimpse of Jack standing proudly atop the mast of his vessel as it sails into Port Royal, hair rustling in the wind. Then a couple shots later, it's revealed that Jack's "ship" is a battered dingy so full of leaks that it makes the last several feet into port mostly submerged.

The story centers on this lone pirate on the Caribbean Sea, looking for his lost ship, the Black Pearl which was commandeered years earlier by Captain Barbossa …
