When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
This swash-buckling tale follows the quest of Captain Jack Sparrow, a savvy pirate, and Will Turner, a resourceful blacksmith, as they search for Elizabeth Swann. Elizabeth, the daughter of the governor and the love of Will's life, has been kidnapped by the feared Captain Barbossa. Little do they know, but the fierce and clever Barbossa has been cursed. He, along with his large crew, are under an ancient curse, doomed for eternity to neither live, nor die. That is, unless a blood sacrifice is made.Written by

(at around 1h 23 mins) When the Pearl is chasing the Interceptor both ships go full wind. Therefore, flags on both ships are flown back as though the ships are propelled by something other than the wind. When a ship is driven by the wind, the flags will be flown in the direction of the wind which in full wind will be from stern to bow. See more »

Quiet, missy! Cursed pirates sail these waters. You want to call them down on us?
Mr. Gibbs, that will do!
She was singing about pirates. Bad luck to sing about pirates, with us mired in this unnatural fog... mark my words!
Consider them marked.

When shown on BBC one the movie has been edited for violence for example when will Turner threw an axe in a pirates back the Impact and the sound of the pirate screaming in agony is removed as well as the part where will Turner removed the axe from the pirates back. All profanity is fully intact in the BBC version. See more »
Awesome action and swashbuckling adventure, great music from the likes of Hans Zimmer, good visuals and Johnny Depp's hilarious improvisational performance as Captain Jack Sparrow (the other performances are good as well but Depp's the highlight and you damn well know it) make the first Pirates of the Caribbean adventure a fun action flick that's not only a great first non-Touchstone/Hollywood Pictures/pre-2006 Miramax & Dimension PG-13 Disney movie but also a much better movie than a movie based off of a THEME PARK RIDE has the right to be.
