Movie Review – Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

Hello, friends. This past weekend I spontaneously decided to watch Pirates of the Caribbean because I found it on Netflix, so today I’m going to review it (spoiler-free).

So, for those of you that don’t know, this is about a pirate named Jack Sparrow whose ship – The Black Pearl – was taken over by a man named Barbossa. A young woman named Elizabeth Swann is captured by them when she lies about who she is, and they think that she can free them from the curse that was put upon them. After they took away the ship, William Turner tried to tell them that what they did was wrong, but they ended up killing him. Then, they became skeletons of some sort, and weren’t able to die, eat, or drink. Ever.

The only person that could lift the curse was someone by the name of Turner, and Elizabeth pretended to be one.

Meanwhile, Will turner, William’s son, after an internal debate, seeked Jack Sparrow’s help in finding Elizabeth, his love. This movie follows the journey to Barbossa in the Caribbean, hence the film title.

This is a movie that I could not stop watching. Yes, it took me a few days to finish because I started it at 11pm on Thursday night, but it was still amazing.

What I actually recommend is looking up the soundtrack, listening to it, and then watching the movie. I’ve been listening to the score of all three movies for years and I found myself filling in little details about the character names based on the song titles.

It’s also fun putting a visual to those songs you’ve been listening to for a while.

Overall, this is a really nice movie. The film angles really added to the urgent-ness of the story, and the actors delivered their lines so well. 

Some of the actors were a little bit stiff, but I think Johnny Depp took the cake for just playing around with the role. It almost seemed like Jack was drunk all the time, and when we actually saw him drunk, I didn’t really know the difference. He seems so familiar with the character, I can’t wait to see the next one.

I give this movie an 8.5 out of 10.

Thanks for reading! Like, comment, explore, whatever you’d like, just don’t force yourself to do anything. See ya!
