From producer Jerry Bruckheimer (PEARL HARBOR) comes PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, the thrilling high-seas adventure with a mysterious twist. The roguish yet charming Captain Jack Sparrow's (Academy Award(R) Nominee Johnny Depp) idyllic pirate life capsizes after his nemesis, the wily Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), steals his ship, the Black Pearl, and later attacks the town of Port Royal, kidnapping the governor's beautiful daughter Elizabeth (Keira Knightley). In a gallant attempt to rescue her and recapture the Black Pearl, Elizabeth's childhood friend Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) joins forces with Jack. What Will doesn't know is that a cursed treasure has doomed Barbossa and his crew to live forever as the undead. Rich in suspense-filled adventure, sword-clashing action, mystery, humor, unforgettable characters, and never-before-seen special effects, PIRATES is a must-have epic on the grandest scale ever.
À des lieues de sa précédente réalisation, le stressant The Ring, Gore Verbinski part à labordage du film daventures avec Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, donnant à voir une nouvelle facette du talent sans faille de Johnny Depp.
Au XVIIe siècle, en pleine mer des Caraïbes, le Black Pearl, navire du flibustier Jack Sparrow, est volé par linfâme capitaine Barbossa. Ce dernier, avide de méfaits, attaque la ville de Port-Royal et enlève la fille du gouverneur, Elizabeth Swann. Will Turner, ami denfance de cette dernière, se joint à Sparrow pour la bataille au cours de laquelle ils découvriront létrange malédiction qui frappe Barbossa et son équipage.
Inspiré dune attraction du parc à thèmes Disney, Pirates of the Caribbean réunit la plupart des ingrédients dun film dété réussi : panache, héroïsme, humour et piquant. Malheureusement, tous sont rassemblés dans le personnage de Jack Sparrow dont Johnny Depp donne une interprétation savoureuse, tout en dreadlocks, œil charbonneux et énigmes malicieuses qui a, en outre, lair de samuser comme un petit fou à donner corps à ces aventures épiques. À ses côtés, Orlando Bloom et Keira Knightley font pâles figures. Geoffrey Rush est par contre à la hauteur en méchant diabolique. Présenté dans un double DVD, avec de nombreux documentaires, un making-of et 19 scènes supprimées, Pirates of the Caribbean a tout de même le mérite de redonner vie à un genre souvent délaissé : le film de pirates.

This movie blew me away. First of all, Johnny Depp was amazing. I've never seen a performance that could equal his. You can't take your eyes off of Depp to even appreciate the other fine acting in the film unless you've watched the movie several times! Secondly, I liked the plot twists. It is rare that I watch a film and miss any of what is going on. I did with this film, and had to watch it several times in the theatre to understand precisely what was happening, and just how incredibly clever Captain Sparrow was. Furthermore, watch the subtle shifts in Depp's performance when he's with people or alone. There's a clear difference. Sparrow is far more focused, thoughtful, and decisive alone. He's putting on a hypnotic act when in front of others. It's a one man acting tour de force, awesome to watch. Third, I was on my college fencing team and have always been really picky about the swordplay in a movie. There have been some great sword fights in the past, most recently in "The Princess Bride," but the consistency and quality of the sword play in "Pirates of the Caribbean" was highly impressive. Some critics complained about too many sword fights, but I loved each and every one of them. They were terrific. Finally, the music and cinematography were wonderful, adding greatly to the overall impact of the film. I consider it this year's best movie par none so far.Read more ›
The movie is a fantastic, fun production which doesn't take itself too seriously. You'd have to be miserable not to like it!
Another pirate inspired product I'd recommend is the book 'Godstone - The Kairos Boxes' by G.A Williams...
Godstone - The Kairos Boxes
The story is a simple one. There is a ship, the Black Pearl, formerly owned by Captain Sparrow but now led by the evil Barbossa,(Simon Callow) and crewed by pirates cursed never to die until a final piece of stolen gold is returned to its rightful place. Elizabeth has been in possession of this missing gold since she was a girl but never known its significance. When the Black Pearl discovers the whereabouts of this missing treasure they set forth to Elizabeth's home to retrieve it. Elizabeth naively thinks she can bargain with Barbossa but finds herself imprisoned on the Black Pearl and being carried away. Soon Will and Jack are in hot pursuit, Will because he loves Elizabeth and Jack because he wants revenge on the pirates who stole his beloved ship from him.
Johnny Depp is brilliant as the camp, funny Captain Sparrow (whom he based on Keith Richards of Rolling Stones fame) and he certainly steals the show in spite of worthy performances from the rest of the cast. This, alongside excellent special effects and a myriad of extras (some hidden) on disc 2 make this a DVD well worth purchasing
Johnny Depp, especially, wonderfully offers his own humor into this movie. His unforgettable behavior alone gives this movie the unforgettable comedy experience. All the other actors also perform their roles wonderfully: Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, and Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush. Their personalities heighten the movie's genre characteristics wonderfully. Without them, this experience wouldn't be nearly as enjoyable.
The special effects look realistic. The ships sailing, the gun shooting scenes, and many others could be easily mistaken for a real pirate war. The characters' switch from human flesh to only skeleton never faulters. No special effect is ever cheated, even the minor ones.
"Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" is highly enjoyable for those of all ages. Those looking for unique action should watch this. This will keep its audiences highly entertained the whole time.
