Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. 2-Disc Collector's Edition, is too many characters for a review title, so I've written it out full here! :)
If you only watch one installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (and possibly quadrilogy!), it should be this one. The Curse of the Black Pearl was the original Pirates movie and stands well on its own as an incredible adventure film. One can watch this movie and be completely satisfied with how it ends, as plans had not yet been made for its sequels.
The Curse of the Black Pearl stars the infamous Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, former captain of the Black Pearl, seeking to regain his prized ship from the hands of Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), his mutinering first-mate and a crew of undead pirates.
Elizabeth and Will (Keira Knightly & Orlando Bloom) are childhood sweethearts, but class and social pressures sucessfully keep them apart until Elizabeth is kidnapped by the crew of the Black Pearl. Will teems up with Jack Sparrow in a desperate rescue attempt that takes everyone involved on the journey of a lifetime throughout the seven seas.
Muskets, cannons, ships, storms, a mysterious curse, and true love all play a part in making this story an adventure film, a comedy, and a romance all rolled into one.
The Collector's Edition contains two discs. The first is the movie in both English and French. The second is packed with special features including commentaries, interviews, pirate trivia, and other enhanced features for PC.
This DVD set is worth every penny I spent on it, and I highly, highly recommend it!
