Review of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl'

1st film in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' series

curse_of_the_black_pearl.jpg A fun-filled two hours of good old-fashioned pirate adventure. The effects are very good with not too bad a story (with a couple of complications and twists). Johnny Depp is wonderful as Captain Jack Sparrow (who never seems to be able to stand still) yet the supporting cast of Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom (also seen in the Lord of the Rings trilogy) add the right amount of characterisation (perhaps excepted with the ocasionally wooden Bloom).

Rating: “Really good but I have some issues”
