From producer Jerry Bruckheimer (PEARL HARBOR) comes PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, the thrilling high-seas adventure with a mysterious twist. The roguish yet charming Captain Jack Sparrow's (Academy Award(R) Nominee Johnny Depp) idyllic pirate life capsizes after his nemesis, the wily Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), steals his ship, the Black Pearl, and later attacks the town of Port Royal, kidnapping the governor's beautiful daughter Elizabeth (Keira Knightley). In a gallant attempt to rescue her and recapture the Black Pearl, Elizabeth's childhood friend Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) joins forces with Jack. What Will doesn't know is that a cursed treasure has doomed Barbossa and his crew to live forever as the undead. Rich in suspense-filled adventure, sword-clashing action, mystery, humor, unforgettable characters, and never-before-seen special effects, PIRATES is a must-have epic on the grandest scale ever.
Like any DVD blockbuster from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the extras are plentiful and often a bit too self-congratulatory (worst offender here is the primary commentary track). The slickly (natch) produced making-of documentary goes through the standard routine; however, the less-flashy "fly on the wall" bits--just showing what happens on set without comment--is more fun, offering effortless insight on the filmmaking process. The best treasure is a nifty interactive history on pirates with plenty of background material. You can simply play the filmed segments or take a tour around a ship to discover the material (and a few surprises). There's a lot of archival material on the theme-park ride that inspired the film and several odds and ends including an enjoyable chronicle of the vintage ship's voyage from its home harbor to the movie set. The kids should really dig the DVD-ROM "Moonlight Becomes Ye," in which they can turn their own mug into a ghostly pirate. There's also a bounty of extended and deleted scenes (19 in all) and a very funny blooper reel. With both DTS and Dolby 5.1, sound systems will get a workout with the excellent (and loud) sound design. --Doug Thomas

OMG it was so good. I do think though that Johnny Depp made the movie. He is such a talented actor and can do such a variety of roles. The movie was great for kids and for adults. It was funny as well as action and I really enjoyed it. Now I will have to get the others in the series and watch them all. Thanks son!!
Of all the supporting characters, my personal favorite is Panchetti who gives an eye-popping performance. He is fun to watch with all of his antics and they are just the right amount to enhance the story line but not detract from it.
I love the 2nd DVD that comes with this package. It has a wide variety of items that include Jerry Bruckheimer's still shots taken from the set, historical background information, deleted scenes (3 of which I think should have made it to the film), interactive areas if you can watch the DVD on your PC, and the original Disney special of the opening of the ride. I found it very interesting to watch the Disney special after watching the movie and seeing what all made it to the movie.
I have talked to people in all stages of life that love this movie: pre-teens, teens, young adults, adults and even senior citizens. If you are looking for something to appeal to a lot of people, this is it.
So, hang onto your bootstraps and be prepared for a thrill ride when you watch this movie.
Don't judge me, Bro...
