Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl ★★★½

Absolute swashbuckling fun from start to finish, paced magnificently and constantly having your attention with it never letting itself become dull or tedious. 

Iconic and charismatic performances all round from the entire cast that help carry the story and increase the entertainment factor. I had also forgotten how great the film is visually. Costumes and sets are immaculate, cinematography is expressive while also being grimy and grungy at points and the music is epic and adventurous.  Almost all the special effects have aged greatly too and look better than some of the effects seen in films from years after. The battle sequences too are definitely worthy of mentioning as they’re thrilling and hard to take your eyes off of. 

Thanks for reading! :)
