Film review of Pirates of Caribbean

Extracts from this document...


Film Review This film review is about Pirates of the Caribbean - the Curse of the Black Pearl. It is an adventure and action film, which is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Ir has become the first Walt Disney Pictures release to earn a PG - 13 rating by the MPAA. This film was first released on 8th august 2003 and this is the first in a series of three: the Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man's Cheast and at the World's end. The featured cast are Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Jack Davenport and Jonathan Pryce. ...read more.


On the one hand, the opening scenes are meant to be cheerful and humorous, but Depp overplays them. However, be a bit patient and things settle down when the story gets progressing. If you are imaginative, you might even persuade yourself that Depp's character, Captain Jack Sparrow, plays the fool consciously so that others will underestimate him. The first paced film involves Keira Knightley, who plays a beautiful young girl engaged to a rigid and grim soldier. She would really rather marry the local blacksmith's apprentice (Orlando Bloom). She owns a gold Aztec medallion which she wears around her neck and it is hidden by her shirt. ...read more.


On the other hand, the pirate ghosts find themselves in some breath-taking difficulties in their search to become human again. However, apart from the interesting story line, the costume, music and sets were all amazing. I personally found the sets and props most impressive. Did you know that the ship used in the film was actually built and really used? A film with adventure, fantasy and even a touch of romance, Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favourite and unforgettable films, not only because the actors in the film are really attractive, especially Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, I think that they are all very professional and fabulous actors. I also recommended this film to my friends and family. They all admire the story lines. ...read more.
