This movie directed by Gore Verbinski is an attempt to put long-forgotten pirate movies back on the spotlight. “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”, is the first movie of a trilogy.
After a pirates attack, Will Turner is rescued by the Governor’s ship. The Governor’s daughter, Elizabeth Swann, had to take care him, and she found a pirate’s necklace round his neck so she hid it to protect him. The years went by, and one day the Black Pearl attacked Port Royal looking for the necklace and kidnapped Elizabeth because they thought she was Tim Turner’s daughter. Will, who had fallen in love with her, with the famous Captain Jack Sparrow, who was going to be hanged, are persecuted by the Royal Navy while they were trying to rescue her.
The role of Jack Sparrow is played by Johnny Depp and he gives an excellent performance that makes the movie alive with humour. This new interpretation of a pirate movie revives the genre with magnific special effects, and marvellous landscapes.
Everyone should watch so as not to feel left out because everybody will be talking about it for years.
