The first of the sries. With the versatile Johnny Depp and Australian actor Geoffrey Rush starring. A real Action movie.
Most fun movie EVER... non-stop action, constant changes in the storyline to keep you guessing, and brilliant characters, right down to the animals! An all time favourite.
Action, a pretty girl, chases, funny punchlines, enough twists and turnes....
Yes a real good story!
I look forward to all the other ones!
A bit fuss about nothing. I so wanted to like this....but couldn't. Johnny Depp is the only good thing about it. This franchise leaves me cold. I haven't been able to sit through any of these movies.
Best of the series, good fun.
a good few laugh out loud bits and great acting. loved johhnny depp
Great movie for the whole family.
I didn't see this movie when it originally came out and have not watched any of the showings on TV either.
I decided upon recommendation from a friend to watch this movie and I'm glad I did. Johnny Depp plays a delightful swaggering Pirate called Jack Sparrow.
This is a very funny film full of suspense, intrigue and oh yes, you've got it love of a fair lady.
All the great clichés of Pirates and vagabonds are there along with the daintiness and honour of landed gentry.
Orlando Bloom for his part as William Turner creates more twists and turns in the plot, upon Jack Sparrow and the Governor and of course beautiful Keira Knightly's character Elizabeth Swift - the Govenor's Daughter.
Mind you Elizabeth Swift herself is of independent Ladies mind.
I think too, if life as a Pirate was like Jack Sparrows - a Pirates Life for me would be - sadly, I know this not to be true.
This is a fun and action packed film. I strongly recommend!
What a great flick.Can't get much better.
Totally enjoyable by both the large and small members of the family. We get the site gags and the lines and the children love the blatant violence. Great for all the family
A good bit of fun. Great effects, well shot and acted and an entertaining storyline.
interesting take on a well worn tale. Entertaining if you like the genre or Johnny Depp
Great entertainment for all especially for the adults with lots of tongue in cheek dialogue throughout
If you enjoyed the first one you will love this can not wait to see the thrid one
It is obviously a popular movie, but I did not like it.
great visual effects. go Jack Sparrow.
Corny humour laid on with a trowel, swashbuckling action and ghouls. This movie will appeal to younger teens and to women who like their anti-hero to wear eyeliner and high heels. Amusing attempts by the cast to talk like a pirate (Depp wimps out with london-cockney).
loved it , it was funny and very entertaining. great
Not at all what I initially expected. Loved every minute. Really fine acting. What can't Mr Depp do?
A fun movie, although the special effects were a bit overused at times. In the spirit of "The Mummy".
Everyone should love a Pirate movie, fun action adventure, well acted by all, suitable for general family viewing, (but may be a bit scary for under 7 years old?? ghosts etc) Expected more because of the build up but worth watching.
I totally enjoyed this movie considering I wasn't sure if I would like it. The effects and the humour had me hooked. Can't wait to watch the sequel.
One of the great action movies, with stellar performances from all involved. The DVD also has excellent production values, with numerous documentaries and commentaries, and more than a few easter eggs for the curious to discover. If you haven't seen it yet... what's keeping you?
Lots of fun - loved the way Johnny Depp 'camped' up his role.
Thoroughly enjoyed this, cant wait for the second one.
Excelent!! Johnny Depp,Orlando Bloom makes agod combination and of course Geoffrey Rush is at his usual best even in this comedy role. Cant wait for the next instalment.
Ok. But not fantastic. Props etc were good
I just loved the movie johnny depp is brilliant grab some popcorn sit and watch.
Johnny Depp is as entertaing as evr in this pirate spoof and Jeffrey Rush does Australia proud as the villian
Third time I've seen this & always find something new each time. Love Johnny Depp in this. Role is made for him!!!
Have seen this before and love it
The plot is a little thin. Fun, but don't expect too much
An entertaining romp of mayhem, violence and romance, and a touch of horror. Some relief from the violence and mayhem of 9/11 revisited ad nauseum on its 5th anniversary! At least we could laugh at the Pirates.
Fun, adventure,wit; worth a watch for everyone over 5!
a very funny and light movie - I didn't realise it would be so humourous. A movie teenagers will love.
Great fun - too scary for kids
Good plot (not predictable). I really enjoyed watching this movie and look forward to seeing next one.
A fun romp with no foul language or other nasties. Not intended to be taken seriously. Just go with the flow and enjoy. Some supernatural themes for those sensitive to that.
entertaining movie with good performances.
Haven't seen the new one yet but this is still fantastic viewing!
I really enjoyed this movie and I'm glad I watched it on DVD and not the TV.Swashbuckling pirates,armed skeletons,cannons,sailing ships and lots of fun plus the hoard of gold.Any boy would like this,old or young.Aye me hearties.
Johnny Depp's performance is amazing (and has been nominated for an award). Other great performances by other major cast also. The film is fantastic for both the girls and the boys
The dry wit appeals and Depp is his usual debonair self.
very good, very funny and Depp is one of my favourite actors
Excellent movie of Pirates and Ghosts. Depp is brilliant in his role as the slightly cuckoo pirate, with great support from Geoffrey Rush and Orlando Bloom make this one great movie. A must see. Great.
I found this movie vey entertaining. It reminded me of the Walt Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland, California.
Over-rated vehicle for the talents of Johnny Depp.
TIP: when you're fighting dead guys, they DON'T DIE! Get It? Save your energy and run like hell. (Or swim!)
nice, light comedy/romance/action. johnny depp lifts the film to a whole other level. fun for all the family
Top movie, but I would suggest if you have teenage daughters, supply bib, or drool tray! Took all my effort to get this movie back from her!! Go Johnny! Go Olando! Thanks Quickflix!
I enjoyed the actors (Knightley, Bloom & Depp) and the set and costumes. Story was good too, tho didnt like the "walking dead", quite unexpected. All good fun though.
Another good family movie, however don't be put off by the fact of the era it's based around. Very witty and funny movie which keeps you glued to the TV to see how things turn out for the heros. Definitely worth watching.
Good rollicking fun and slashy as all hell.
Johnny Depp is spectacular in this movie. He definitely deserved all the awards that he got for it. Incredibly good for a movie based on a ride at Disneyland.
Great movie. Johnny Depp is just fantastic in any role. Fun, laughter and romance - everything was there.
The special effects were flawless and J.D was brilliant!!
Full of fun, Johnny Depp showing his very original talents, liked historic setting, ships.
The end is silly, but other than that it was enjoyable - especially Keiras Pout
Like the swashbuckling adventure movies of old
A very enjoyable movie, great acting.
A real adventure and a movie classic. The plot keeps everyone entertained with suprising twists.
Johhny Depp is sensational, as is Rush. The computer graphics are also a stand out, but not over the top. A really entertaining film.
Very amusing and entertaining. A great nights viewing for the whole family.
Excellent acting in this movie
Thought it was a greaf film. A bit different to the most.
A great comedy/horror with heaps of swash buckling action.
A lot of fun with over the top performances by Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush. Not to be taken seriously but good entertainment.
Having Read everyone elses reveiws , Including the resident critics What's Left to Say. Grab this Movie and ENJOY.
As someone previously pointed out Pirate movies are usually Duds.The Likelyhood of the Lead charachters Geoffrey Rush or Johnny Depp being involved in the same Dud would seem highly remote. Bring on the Sequel
This is a classic Walt Disney kind of film of the 1950s, 60s,70s with 21st century amazing computerised special effects.Keira Knightly is like the typical girl next door of the 1970s in period costume - which she can't breathe in! ANd Johnny Depp is an invincible, swas buckling hero like Erol Flynn who survives anything and every thing in a special effects kind of world which bends all natural laws for good ol family fun!
What a great movie. Much better than I expected, special effects were sensational. Johnny Depp is always worth watching
Only worth watching to see johnny depp camp it up found it pretty ordinary otherwise.
A little bit of adventure, little bit of tongue in cheek romp - all good fun. Have fun figuring out Johnny Depp accent, my money's on David Bowie ...
Actionpacked from start to finish
Reviews I have read about this film say its a fun, swashbuckling, romping kind of film. And it is - for the kids. But adults might find its simple plot and hollow characters a bit of a strain. 2 hours of your time might be better spent on another movie.
Great characters and special effects. Story starts out strong but loses its way towards the end.
Johnny Depp puts in a fantastic performance in this swashbuckling tale as Captain Jack Sparrow. Incredible special effects and ingenious ways of incorporating Disneyland's most famous theme park ride into a movie. You will recognise sites from the ride cleverly placed throughout the movie. I highly recommend this movie...a fun night for the whole family or just for two.
Kids and adults both thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Johnny Depp is great eye candy!!!!
I have seen it a couple of times now. A definite must even if you are not a fan of Johnny Depp or pirate movies.
A great performance by Johnny Depp, cant wait for the second installment...
Really only for children, well my opinion.
Completely hilarious, witty, cunning and surprising. A film you CAN watch over and over again.
This movie is pure FUN!! Depp was excellent, pretty impressive movie for a story that was based on a theme park ride.
Just great! Must see this. Can watch this over and over.
A good flick. Perhaps some miscasting with Johny Depp - Geoffrey Rush however was as usual excellent.
What can be said? Suberb casting and a better than most script come together in bring the most fun in ages. Depp, of course, is the centre piece of this fun but Rush doesn't quake in the role either. Fun references to the theme park ride make this movie a gift for the eyes as well. Never has Hollywood made such a well done combination.
Great movie, played three times at our house.
Much better than expected. Was unsure what to expect with all the hype surrounding the performance. Johnny Depp has certainly come of age as an actor - giving an outstanding performance in Pirates.
Fantastic movie. Great action, great sights. Very original. Hoping for a sequel.
Very exciting ...and the effects were amazing. Johny Depp was just great
Johnny Depp is superb. Good Fun
A very good movie Depp play agreat character
Jonny was great! If you rent it pay a lot of attention to his hands and body movements!
Great movie, and acting by Johhny Depp. Excellent.
A rollicking good pirate tale, action fast and furious, great acting by Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush. Very enjoyable to watch.
really well done movie kept me enthralled very funny and johnny depp was great in it
The boys are great and Keira Knightley is exceptional for someone so young. Depp gives a performance that reminded me of Guy Pearce in 'Priscilla' for some inexplicable reason! A little too long perhaps.
This is a great satire... Johnny Depp is magnificent.
This is Johnny Depp's best roll ever. Loved it. Just a great story with excellent effects.
I really enjoyed this movie. It is a fun, adventure movie, with plenty of laughs throughout. Johnny Depp's performance stood out as Capt'n Jack Sparrow (the most likeable pirate in the Carribbean although he wouldn't like to hear it!) Orlando Bloom as Will Turner was another great performance. Sword fighting scenes stood out for the great choreography. A longish movie, but not at all hard to sit through! Sat through this movie twice in one weekend!
I Highly recommend this one! 4 Paws.
Great movie effect...skeleton pirates.
Loved it. Depp shines in this movie.
Loved it. Depp shines in this movie.
A movie for all the family to enjoy.
Never been a Johnny Depp fan but he certainly won me over in this movie. The behind the scene look in the extras alone is worth the hire.
A thoroughly enjoyable film. First the first time in ages I finished the film feeling as if I had had a really good time with fun people. Who else but Johnny Depp could be so self serving while being quite charming.
Johnny Depp is brilliant in this action adventure. Great supporting cast and special effects.Thoroughly recommend.
