Review: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Starring: Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley
Length: 143 min.
IMDB Summary: Blacksmith Will Turner teams up with eccentric pirate "Captain" Jack Sparrow to save his love, the governor's daughter, from Jack's former pirate allies, who are now undead.
In this rousing, swashbuckling film, a life of piracy is romanticized and made accessible to the audience through Depp's character, Captain Jack Sparrow, a quirky pirate at odds with the mean, gnarly pirate portrayed by Geoffrey Rush. Though the moral rules governing this film are a bit dubious at best, it portrays the pirate's life as wild, romping and adventurous. The themes of love, freedom, adventure and rules vs. guidelines ring true throughout the movie. I really enjoyed Hans Zimmer's score and the beautiful locations where the filming took place. If you're ready for a fun, rollicking adventure on the open seas, then sit back, relax and enjoy!
Some action/adventure violence, including skeletons, hand-to-hand combat, cannon fire and guns.
