Pirates of the Caribbean is my favorite ride at Disney World. When this movie came out, I was very excited to see it and it did not disappoint. Johnny Depp surprised me with his portrait of Captain Jack Sparrow and he does an excellent job.
The movie starts off with Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann as children. Will was rescued from the Sea and Elizabeth took a medallion he was wearing around his neck. The movie goes forward to them as adults. Elizabeth still has the medallion. The pirates come into Port Royal and take Elizabeth, thinking she is the one they need. Jack is trying to get his ship back, and offers to help Will Turner in rescuing Elizabeth. All the while, knowing that the pirates really want Will.
I also like this movie because it is witty, yet not over the top, and never corny. I like the action in it. My favorite scene is when the pirates are fighting and you see their bodies go in and out of skeleton form. It has great cinematography and a lot of fun to watch.
I own the 2 disc collectors edition. It includes 19 deleted and alternate scenes, the making of Pirates, and an interactive History of Pirates.
