Although I had expectations ( from watching the trailers ) that this might be a good movie, I was still surprised that it’s as good as it is. The story is actually more complex than I had expected, involving cursed pirates and their quest to rid themselves of the curse. I won’t say more than that so as not to spoil it if you haven’t seen it.
There aren’t as many action scenes as I had thought there would be in a pirate movie, but the ones that are in the movie were very fun and enjoyable. After seeing it, I think it had the right balance of action and drama. There are also, of course, a lot of funny bits interspersed between the action and drama. Some really good special effects also add to the enjoyment of this movie.
I wasn’t much of a fan of Johnny Depp until I saw this movie. I think he deserved to win the Academy Award for best actor. It’s largely because of his performance, IMO, that the movie was so good. Most of the supporting cast did well, mind you, just that Johnny Depp stood high above the rest. I did find Orlando Bloom’s performance a bit wooden, but other than that the acting was good.
Basically, it’s a really fun movie and I’d give it about 8 out of 10
“You better start believing in ghost stories. You’re in one.”
What a great line to describe probably the greatest pirate movie ever. Certainly, it isn’t perfect, a bit over the top, yet filled with characters that you love to hate or you can’t resist rooting for. Thanks to the performance of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, this has become a long-lasting franchise of Disney car and love the many sequels that followed up aren’t as good, Jack has remained consistently strong in the ones where he was given a great opportunity to show off his huge talents.
Johnny was justifiably nominated for an Oscar for his performance in this, and is ably supported by Geoffrey Rush as the ghostly Captain Barbarossa and Orlando Bloom as Will Turner (brought up as a pirate until he was rescued at sea as a child), and Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Swann, the daughter of the governor of a Caribbean island.
In his performance, Depp gives several insights into the real character of Jack Sparrow, and it is debated whether he was just an eccentric drunk or possibly gay or bisexual. Certainly, the slaps he gets from various women throughout the film debate the second point, but other insinuations indicate that he had prolactivities. Sparrow and Turner are rivals at first until they must join forces to rescue Elizabeth who is kidnapped by Barbarossa. she goes to a frightening sequence when she learns of who they really are, and that brings terrific elements of horror into the film.
Fans of the Disneyland ride will be gleefully surprised to see various elements of it from the drunk man sleeping with tags, the jailed men trying to get a dog to bring over the key or the various battle fights at sea. they are spread throughout the film so you don’t feel like you taking the ride and then gone back into a plot, so it makes it fun for experienced riders of that tourist attraction as they pop up.
The terrific makeup, costumes, photography and music add to the sensational performances. This takes the best elements of all the classic pirate movies (from “Treasure Island” to “Captain Kidd”) and adds a reality with the violence and filth and crudeness, but somehow, some of the pirates (especially Sparrow) are quite loveable in a strange way. This is non-stop action, filled with humor both physical and verbal, and some of it in spite of the lack of etiquette of the characters is subtlety classy. I can see myself returning to this every couple of years because certainly, like a trip to Disney, it’s a ride that you don’t want to miss when you have the opportunity.
