Plot Summary

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Pirates steams ahead on a mirthless course of script beats and busy action sequences, coldly steered by director Gore Verbinski to the boom-blast-blare coordinates of producing commodore Jerry Bruckheimer. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: An awkward pirate epic that's jampacked with energy, ambition and spectacular effects. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Here -- in a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced high-seas adventure that incorporates roaring cannons, oddball comedy, a love story and more than a touch of the supernatural -- Depp unleashes his theatrical bravado. He's hilarious. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Oct 4, 2011

Fresh: Pirates reminds me of a vintage MGM musical, a movie that is more choreographed than directed, and one that serves up good clean fun of the PG-13 variety. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Apr 27, 2007
