Pirates of the Caribbean:The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Director: Gore Verbinski

Writer: Ted Elliot, Terry Rossio, Stuart Beattie & Jay Wolpert

Starring: Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush & Keira Knightley

Story: Elizabeth Swan (Keira Knightley) is the daughter of the Governor and she holds the last piece of Aztec gold, wanted and hunted by pirates. Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is a pirate and captain of the Black Pearl. Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) is a blacksmith with quick feet and quick thinking.
Elizabeth is kidnapped by a group of pirates under the command of Captain Barbosa (Geoffrey Rush) and taken to the Black Pearl. On board this ship Elizabeth soon realizes that the pirates are more than rum drinking swashbucklers, they are in fact undead.  Will and Jack join forces on the hunt to save the love of Will's life, Elizabeth. With a ship and a crew they set sale to reclaim what is theirs and take down Barbosa.
A battle commences and a fight to the death has arisen. Will Jack reclaim the Pearl and Will reunite with Elizabeth?

Verdict: An amazing story of grit and determination surrounded by love and action.

Best quote: "When you marooned me on that god forsaken spit of land, you forgot one very important thing, mate: I'm Captain Jack Sparrow."
Stand out/favourite character: Will Turner for his determination and no holds barred hunt to save Elizabeth.

Stand out performance: Johnny Depp for making a drunk pirate so cool.

Best moment: When Elizabeth burns the rum, Jacks face is a picture.

Worst Moment: When for a moment you think that Jack is going to be executed.

My Rating: 10/10
