When I saw the preview of “Pirates of the Caribbean” I couldn’t help thinking that it was never going to make it. It sounded like just another cheesy horror film, however I was wrong- it was fantastic film

The movie is about a group of Pirates who are searching for gold. “Pirates of the Caribbean” is filled with action, plenty of punch lines and multi-dimensional characters. The script is witty and has a good story line: pirates who cannot die and are therefore able to pillage and plunder anywhere they like. It seems like a life of bliss, yet, through a series of hilarious scenes, the downsides of being immortal are revealed.

After seeing the movie, my immediate praise went out to Johnny Depp. He took captain Jack Sparrow, the legend Pirate, added a bit of himself, and created an extremely loveable character. Everything from the impeccable British accent to his simple stance made the movie that much better. Depp truly stole the show.

Another standout was Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa, the proud mutineer who steals jacks ship. Rush adapts to his character perfectly and brings out Barbossa’s strong personality. Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley (both fairly new to Hollywood at the time) wonderfully portray the twisted love story with a touch of humor.

Overall a spectacular movie with priceless actors. This is a must-see for anyone who enjoys action, comedy, and romance.
I rate these 8 out of 10 peg legs.
