PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL (2003 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl—unforgettable and rewatchable—displays superb cinematography with such realistic special effects that, fifteen years later, still stand as great examples of the best effects the entertainment industry affords. Especially watch for the skeletons and decomposing pirate bodies. Johnny Depp, at his typical Johnny Depp best, pushes this storyline into outstanding. No wonder Disneyland specifically used this movie's theme to create one of its famous park rides. Great work for all involved in producing the film. Special mention to the terrific talents of Director Gore Verbinski. Outstanding work.

Storyline

Governor Swann (Jonathan Pryce) and his daughter Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) become involved with the Pirate Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), the crew of a ghost ship, the son of famous pirate Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), an old curse, and a special medallion.
