Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl — This is THE pirate movie — 10*/10

  • Story: Well told with laughter, dark magic and a nice sound intrigue. It will captivate everyone.
  • Characters: Archetypical, but each is very interesting, unique, and well developed.
  • Dialogs: Glib, solid, funny.
  • Scenario: A roller coaster. Fast paced action mixed with nice moody scenes. Amazing battle scenes, with great sword fighting of high caliber and realism.
  • Actors: This is where Johnny Depp created his famous character Jack Sparrow who is now the default standard in any pirate world. Personally, I don't think Orlando Bloom is a good actor, but he did give here his best performance ever, and credible one, that he has yet to equal. All cast members did and great job and they include Keira Knightley, Geoffrey Rush and Jonathan Pryce.
  • Photography: Good action camera work. Amazingly beautiful sets and decors with loads of details, as were the impeccable costumes.
  • Sound: Absolutely stupendous music and score that bring out alternatively dread or fun, but mostly a great urge to shout, yell and join in the action.
  • Special effects: Marvellous. Great attention to details and perfect rendering which can still amaze today, more than 10 years later.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Anyone who doesn't mind action. A must see.

This is the best of the series without a doubt. The novelty and attention to details make it paramount.
