    Overall, good.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Entertaining! Witty! and Fun!

    The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise are a great set of films. They're all very entertaining, witty, and fun to watch. Like everything else on Blu-Ray, this movie looks amazing and the clarity looks so awesome in the daylight scenes/environments on the beach, etc. The acting is superb, you get a great sense of all the characters and each actor brings a little something more. I highly recommend to pick up the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

    Classic Disney movie

    I've gotta be honest and say that this is one of my favorite Disney movies of all times. Pirates, good acting, rememberable characters, and great visuals (especially the underwater scene with walking skeletones - spoiler alert!) ... the movie has it all. Plus its not nearly as bloated (story wise) as other entries in the PoTC franchise after this one.

    I Literally Fell Asleep

    To make a long story short, 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl' put me too sleep, literally. I did see most of the picture, but found it so absolutely unoriginal and boring that I couldn't help but dose off during the middle of the film. This movie made a fortune at the box office, and I don't quite understand why, because for a movie to put me to sleep, it's got to be pretty bad. Widescreen.

    Bought the first 4 Pirates of the Caribbean movies on Blu-Ray to add to my collection, it was actually cheaper to buy them all separately than as part of a one-box collection. Sure, the others never quite lived up to the first, but the cast is excellent, in particular Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush. Check them out!!

    This movie was brilliant. It had great cinematography (probably only bested by the 2nd Pirates movie) and was fun to watch. The characters were great throwbacks to old swash-bucklers, yet with new takes, ala Depp's screw-ball pirate captain. This is one of those movies I could watch over and over. It also has a great cast of superb actors and actress (yes, only one lead actress).

    Well, there isnt much i can say except its a great movie and buying all the movies seperately was alot less expensive vs buying the collection for almost 100 bucks more due to the cool looking treassure chest and the Digital copies. But over all i am very happy with my purchase, a Bluray disc and a DVD for under fifteen dollars is not bad at all.

    Most anyone by now has seen this film which has done gangbusters in renewing people's interest in Pirates films. This one isn't my favorite as that goes to the second film Dead Man's Chest which I know I'm in the minority but still loved it nonetheless. Great Blu-ray + fantastic story equals win! Highly recommended.

    Again, not a review about the movie but rather the product itself. I really like it when they do a combo pack. I am Blu-ray 100%, but it's really nice when they throw in a DVD in there as well. Blu-rays are much more resistant to scratching than regular dvds are, but it's nice they give us both formats for the nice price.

    I remember seeing the first teaser trailer for this movie and wondering how they could base a movie on the ride... Well, they pulled an ace out on this one. But enough has been said about the movie, so I'll give you quick rundown on this Blu-ray release: great picture, great sound, and a solid amount of extras; in other words, a great release!

    This was purchased because I'm upgrading many movies from DVD to BluRay. This is the first movie of the series an I still think it's the best. There's so much more detail in this version that you can see. Of course, there's a decent story so the media is secondary. Happy to have upgraded,
