Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

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

A film that clearly wants to be the Indiana Jones of the 21st century...

The first entry in the Pirates franchise is a fun swashbuckling adventure, that wants to be better than it is. Yes, it is entertaining, but it's also quite poorly made. The script is meandering, the film is too long, the direction is focusless and the action poorly edited. Johnny Depp in arguably his most memorable character is a feat to watch though.
