The only one of the Pirates movies you should bother with. Johnny Depp is outstanding as Captain Jack Sparrow, and the film drags a bit when he's not on screen. Also worth mentioning is Geoffrey Rush as Barbosa. Rush sinks his teeth into the role and looks like he's having fun. Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are ok as the centers of the film but the movie belongs to Depps slurring, stumbling and bumbling Captain Jack. Watch the other films if you must and then come back to this one to remind you of the magic that was missing in the others.

The first installment of the blockbuster Disney franchise introduces Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow, a down on his luck pirate captain who gets mixed up in some supernatural nonsense involving a cursed treasure and a legendary ship crewed by vengeful ghosts. Action packed and entertainingly silly.

Everything a pirate movie should be

"I won't discuss the plot, story, etc. Read other reviews for that. No spoilers here, also. I just want to briefly mention a few things.
The first Pirates Of The Caribbean movie I saw was the second one, Dead Man's Chest (2006). I saw it at a drive-in in July 2006. What a nice summer night that was. The movie, however, I thought was mediocre. I figured the first movie would have to be better, and it definitely was.
Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl (2003) is everything a pirate movie should be. It has action, adventure, fighting, treasure hunting, great daytime and nighttime atmosphere, everything you can think of when it comes to pirates sailing the Caribbean Sea. This movie was based on the Disney ride of the same name. Johnny Depp delivers a great performance, as does the nice looking Keira Knightley.
The special effects are truly awesome. Sure, some CGI was used, but it wasn't overdone, in my opinion. This movie really captures the feel and atmosphere and look of the Caribbean and pirate ships. It was actually filmed in the Caribbean, not in California or some similar place.
The second DVD features over 10 hours (that's right) of extras. Everything from how the movie was made to deleted and alternate scenes, audio commentary, blooper reels, a history of pirates, an image gallery, and so much more. It'll keep you entertained for, well, over 10 hours.
If you like pirates, then you should see this movie. Entertaining and visually stunning, I highly recommended this movie."
