Jack Sparrow, a freewheeling 17th-century pirate who roams the Caribbean Sea butts heads with a rival pirate bent on pillaging the village of Port Royal. When the governor's daughter is kidnapped, Sparrow decides to help the girl's love save her. But their seafaring mission is hardly simple.

More Info:
  • Keith Phipps

    Verbinski knows when to break out the stunning action sequences and when to let his characters dominate the film, and he handles both modes expertly.

  • Richard Corliss

    This is an original work in an antique mood. The actors and authors all have fun with the genre without making fun of it. Rather, they revive it.

    Time Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Finally, there's a big-budget popcorn movie that delivers what moviegoers hunger for: humor, action, thrills and charismatic characters. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is the summer blockbuster we've been waiting for.

    A first-rate sail into Adventureland.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Flawed though it may be, it's frequently an unaffected pleasure, in no small part because of Depp but also because of a raffish air that's a welcome respite from the heavy going of "The Matrix Reloaded," "The Hulk" and other behemoths.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Rory L. Aronsky

    An exciting time at the movies, where you don’t smell something burning and realize it’s your brain cells dying off. During the summer movie season, that’s rather hard to avoid. But this movie has avoided it and it’s time well spent.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The law of commerce worked this time around: One terrific thrill ride has begotten another.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Pirates of the Caribbean moves easily from sunny 18th-century seafaring adventure to creepy zombie flick and back again.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Bruckheimer -– always eager to egg on the public’s thirst for bigger, louder, stupider –- has done a scandalous amount of damage to contemporary cinema, but for once, his dubious talent for big-buck bombast is exploited for good rather than evil.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    It's a good thing that Geoffrey Rush and Johnny Depp are on hand to jack up the acting department. Their characters, two world-class goofballs, keep us interested even during entirely pointless swordfights.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    A rollicking, jumbo-sized swashbuckler, awash in sword fights, cursed treasures, plank walkings and hurtling cannonballs. This stylish, rousing movie has been directed with refreshing levity and wit.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    Letting any other actor run wild like this could have been a disaster, but Depp's peculiar buccaneer is an instant classic of actorly charisma.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    An improbably entertaining, if overlong, adventure that brings new meaning to the term "summer camp." Doubloons! Ripped bodices! Unbuckled swash! Rum galore!

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Pirates offers something for everyone: Bloom and Depp for the ladies, big action and Knightley for the men, self-aware gags for the postmodern crowd, Depp and Rush for fans of top-rank scenery chewing.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Oozes atmosphere. The humor keeps it from becoming too creepy, but there are still a few chills to be had.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    A film that dares to be smart, reasonably complicated and scary while swashing its buckles.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    Verbinski puts a Jackie Chan flourish of high energy and gymnastic action on the swashbuckling stunts and swordplay and keeps this lark sailing along.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    When Pirates of the Caribbean is good, it's certainly something to behold. Full Review
  • Ed Park

    Convoluted but diverting.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Gregory Weinkauf

    I love it, but much in the way I managed to love "The Phantom Menace" -- in spite of its bloat, swaggering self-importance and largely neutered characters.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The dazzling, high-flying silliness is quite an achievement. The movie is better than it deserves to be, given its origins: a ride at Disneyland and Disney World.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Fortunately, whenever the movie starts to sag, Depp flies to the rescue. It’s a truly piratical performance: with his flamboyantly fluttering fingers he steals every scene in the movie.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    At least the movie Pirates of the Caribbean is fun -- but only as long as you don't expect much. Take it from me: The ride is better.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Scott Warren

    Children of all ages: Brace yourselves for a helluva ride.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    The large cast, costumed and made up as filthy scalawags and sinister buccaneers, gives tremendous energy to every scene.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Pirates is OK, in patches even better.

    Slate Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The picture's constant forward movement and breezy sense of amusement about itself provide a certain mild sort of diversion.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Depp swans through this swashbuckler with a scene-stealing gusto unseen since Marlon Brando in "Mutiny on the Bounty." He's comic dynamite, but this plodding, repetitive bore should walk the plank for timidly refusing to light his fuse.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    My main complaint -- there's too much emphasis on action -- will strike the film's young target audience as a see-worthy virtue rather than a fault.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Trimming half an hour from this bloated, 143-minute blockbuster would have highlighted the film's treasures, not the least of which is Johnny Depp's endearingly eccentric performance as Captain Jack Sparrow.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Eventually the concept buckles under the heavy blockbuster treatment, becoming a monotonous, repetitive spectacle of endless shipboard sword fights and pirate ghosts in the moonlight.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    The movie blows, me hearties, but don't you dare miss it...Why? Johnny Depp, that's why...This has gotta rank among the weirdest performances in the zany annals of the silver screen.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    Director Gore Verbiniski delivers the best one can hope for: a cleverly nostalgic, high-tech copy of the real deal.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    There may be nothing more fun for actors than experimental exaggeration, especially when filming on a Caribbean island. But there’s nothing that makes an audience feel less welcome than not being in on the joke.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    This typically bloated production from Jerry Bruckheimer is good swashbuckling fun for the first few reels but eventually slows to a halt under the weight of too many doubloons.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    This noisy retread, a secondhand facsimile of a movie, is, except for the headache its boisterous sound level leaves you with, as forgettable as a bad day in the Disneyland parking lot.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Not enough to keep this celluloid ship from sinking under the weight of its own stupidity.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The booty here is 100 percent fool's gold.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • David Denby

    All in all, Pirates of the Caribbean is the best spectacle of the summer: the absence of pomp is a relief, the warmth of the comedy a pleasure. [28 July 2003, p.94]
