    Synopsis


    Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
    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. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

      This is where it all began, though casting and script were a problem. Bloom is too effeminate for the role and Knightly is satisfactory. The script makes her too masculine and takes away from her possible allure. She was tougher than Bloom's character. Their weak dialogues and, at times, her unrealistic actions weakened the film, somewhat. The major reason for the success of the movie is due solely to Depp's superb portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow. The special effects and just-good-enough script prop up the weak supporting cast . Those three things saved the movie with a little push from Rush. A worthwhile pirate movie for any landlubber or hardy mate.

      I think that "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" was once again one of the greatest Disney films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite Disney films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed all of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films several times and I also think that "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" had a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable action, mystery, humor, drama and suspense including amazing and original personal/suspenseful storylines. I also think that Keira Knightley's role in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films was really amazing.

      I highly recommend best buy for ordering your blu rays. I am a collector and want that slipcover and for it to be in good condition. If the slip is still made available then you are way more likely to get it ordering from best buy than other retailers. This film did not have the slip because it is an older release but I still order BB over the other retailers because if there was one then they would send it to you.

      We recently took our youngest daughter to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean, and she really enjoyed it. The Curse of the Black Pearl was the only one that we didn't already own on dvd, so we decided to purchase it to watch them in order. This is still my favorite one of the series, probably because it was new and fresh. I really enjoy all of them, but there is only one that can be the "first" in a series. Of course they are far fetched, but good entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.

      Framing Errors Ruin an Excellent Movie

      Posted
      Omegabyte

      What these enthusiastic reviewers forget to mention is that there are some major framing errors on the blu-ray version of "Curse of the Black Pearl". In some scenes, the heads of the actors are missing or cut off. (when compared to the theatrical release or DVD version.) Disney is aware of this problem, but has done nothing to correct it. If you contact them, they will take your name and address, and promise to contact you "if" there is any resolution. My suggestion is to avoid the blu-ray version until Disney decides to release a corrected version of this disc.

      A fun film, but raised the bar too high for others

      You just can't top this one. It was so much fun and fresh. I loved all the characters. It was one of those films (like Star Wars) where dispite any flaws, I just love to watch over and over. The cast is perfect, even the secondary characters where delightful.Jonathan Pryce, Geoffrey Rush and all the pirates of the Black Pearl where perfect. This is a much needed film in any film collection. Just wish the 4 film collection wasn't so expensive.

      Excellent DVD treatment of an excellent film!

      Not much needs to be said about this film, which most will agree is a modern classic, but I should point out (for those who haven't bought the DVD) that it also has bonus material worthy of such a classic, including plenty of featurettes, deleted scenes, and some very worthwhile commentary tracks! I usually don't buy a movie unless I feel it has tremendous re-watch value - this is one of the relative few that have qualified in recent years, and the bonus features, thankfully, meet the same high standards.

      This is the only good Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I have loved this movie for years, so it was so good to see that I could get it on Blu-Ray at a great price. All the great action and scary moments now in the best picture quality ever. Love the story, love the music, love the characters, love the action. It is rare that a movie is this good while touching so many different genres. I can treasure it forever now!
