Film review of Pirates of Caribbean Essay
This film review is about Pirates of the Caribbean – the Curse of the Black Pearl. It is an adventure and action film, which is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Ir has become the first Walt Disney Pictures release to earn a PG – 13 rating by the MPAA. This film was first released on 8th august 2003 and this is the first in a series of three: the Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Cheast and at the World’s end. The featured cast are Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Jack Davenport and Jonathan Pryce. Its length is 2 hours and 23 minutes.
If you want to list all the bad films Johnny Depp has appeared in, you would find yourself holding a very short list. He has skills for picking interesting scripts, and staying away from the bad ones that annoy him. His appearance in the film was the first suggestion that the film might be something more than a cheap exploitation of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” deal name.
On the one hand, the opening scenes are meant to be cheerful and humorous, but Depp overplays them. However, be a bit patient and things settle down when the story gets progressing. If you are imaginative, you might even persuade yourself that Depp’s character, Captain Jack Sparrow, plays the fool consciously so that others will underestimate him.
The first paced film involves Keira Knightley, who plays a beautiful young girl engaged to a rigid and grim soldier. She would really rather marry the local blacksmith’s apprentice (Orlando Bloom). She owns a gold Aztec medallion which she wears around her neck and it is hidden by her shirt. The captain and the crew of the pirate ship “The Black Pearl” are desperately searching for it. But they aren’t ordinary, peg-legged, parrot-shouldering pirates. You cannot kill them, because they are already dead. Then Jonny Depp suddenly appears in town, and crew all became pirate ghosts.
For people who love the theme park rides, there are even some jokes where scenes from the rides are recreated publicly. I personally think that it is fun to watch as it is, but I am a bit confused about Depp’s character as it seems to change as he confronts different situations. On the other hand, the pirate ghosts find themselves in some breath-taking difficulties in their search to become human again.
However, apart from the interesting story line, the costume, music and sets were all amazing. I personally found the sets and props most impressive. Did you know that the ship used in the film was actually built and really used?
A film with adventure, fantasy and even a touch of romance, Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favourite and unforgettable films, not only because the actors in the film are really attractive, especially Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, I think that they are all very professional and fabulous actors. I also recommended this film to my friends and family. They all admire the story lines.
