You will always remember this as the movie that made Johnny Depp a superstar and almost got him an Oscar. The fact that he didn't win is too bad, since thanks to him this is the best pirate film ever made. His character of Captain Jack sparrow was probably the most convincing characterisation I have ever seen! Brilliantly executed! This film has action, humour, romance, mystery, special effects and is so delightful that the viewer does not feel the running time of 143 minutes.
A beautiful woman (Keira Knightley), the governors daughter, is kidnapped by a bunch of filthy pirates(led by Geoffrey Rush's Barbossa)and the man(Orlando Bloom)who's desperately in love with her decides to track them down. From now on, things get unexpected, as he asks another pirate for help. And it's no ordinary pirate: it's Captain Jack Sparrow(Johnny Depp),a lying, cheating, but charismatic scumbag, the hardest man on Earth to predict, not to mention quite unlucky and clumsy. Its got all the elements of a perfect pirate movie!
The films just way too perfect to say anything more. I remember watching this movie for the first time the year 2004 and havent been able to stop watching it every now and then, and enjoy it the same way I had the first time! If you havent seen it, GO WATCH!! view less
