Following his surprise-hit American remake of The Ring in 2002, director Gore Verbinski took on Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, the second of recent films to be based upon Disney theme-park rides (the first being The Country Bears). When Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), the daughter of Governor Swann (Jonathan Pryce) is kidnapped by a group of pirates led by Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and taken aboard their ship, The Black Pearl, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), the young man who loves Elizabeth despite the fact that she is promised to another, sets out to rescue her. But he can't do it alone, so he enlists the help of swashbuckling ship captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). Together the two chase after The Black Pearl, but they soon discover that the captain and crew aren't your average pirates. Cursed to remain between the living and the dead, Barbossa and his men look like skeletons when basked in the moonlight. When it is revealed that the only thing that can break the curse is Elizabeth's blood, Jack and Will are faced with a race against time and a battle against the undead to save the Governor's daughter.

With it's combination of beautiful secenery, exquiste detail, swashbuckling adventure, and great acting Pirates is without a doubt the year's best film so far, and one of Disney's all time greats. Thankfully, Pirates returns to it's roots by appealing to a wide audience, not just the under 10 or tween crowds. This film reminded of something that I'd forgotten: how much fun going to the movies can be. A must for anyone's Christmas list.

I loved this movie sooooooooo much! I saw it in the theater twice and even though it's coming out before Christmas, I'm not even waiting that long to get it! Johnny Depp was so funny in it and the story line was great! Why else has this movie been in the top five in theaters for 3 months? Because it's the best!!!!!!

I watched this movie the same day Dead Man's Chest came out in theaters, and watched DMC the next day. And wow-- it was amazing! Since then, I've watched it at least seven times. Every time my sister says: "I want to watch a movie-- which one do you want?", I'd instantly pipe up with "Pirates of the Caribbean!" And note: I have over 20 DVDs on my shelf. GREAT movie!

I Love this movie! Pirates of the Caribbean Curse of the Black Pearl is awesome! It is scary and funny at the same time. I love all the sword fights. I have watched it twenty times. I will never get tired of it. The special effects are great. All the actors did a great job. Jack Sparrow is very, very funny. Be sure yo watch "Dead Man's Chest" and "At Worlds End" after you watch this. They are all great movies. I cannot pick a favorite out of the three. I can't wait untill prat 4 (On Stranger Tides) comes out! I will definately go see it the day it comes to theaters. I LOVE Pirates of the Caribbean!!

From a park ride but with a story all its own, the title tells it all. Basically about a pirate who tries to get back the now accursed black pearl with help from a blacksmith who tries to rescue a girl from pirates who took the ship from the pirate in the first place seeking vengence. You can watch this again and again no matter how old you are.

I just watched " The Curse of the Black Pearl" in anticipation of the 3rd movie opening on Friday... Or tomorrow night for those of you lucky ones! This is probably about my 7th or 8th time watching the movie, and with all great movies, there are always new things that you pick up in the movie. There were a couple of references to Will (Orlando) Turner's father I picked up, and I finally noticed that Cpt. Barbosa did not die at the end of the movie.. Hence, his reappearance in the 2nd movie.. How the heck did I miss that before? And it is always cool to watch the transformations of the pirates to skeletons and back again. The scenes in reference to the ride at Disneyland are always enjoyed, as that is in my top 2 rides at Disneyland. Some of the extras on the 2-disc DVD are pretty cool. I liked the Bloopers reel, and some of the deleted/extended scenes were interesting. The "Making Of" was also interesting too. One of these days i will listen to Bruckheimer's take on the movie. "Dead Man's Chest" is tomorrow night, and then I will be in line for the 3rd Friday !

This DVD was sitting in my house for 3 years! This summer, I finally had enough common sense to watch this movie. Pirates is one of the greatest movies made, and it is led by a spectacular cast consisting of Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightly. No matter what your preferred movie genre is, this movie has got to be on your list!
