Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
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.
Once again we're plunged into the world of sword fights and "savvy" pirates. Captain Jack Sparrow is reminded he owes a debt to Davy Jones, who captains the flying Dutchman, a ghostly ship, with a crew from hell. Facing the "locker" Jack must find the heart of Davy Jones but to save himself he must get the help of quick-witted Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan. If that's not complicated enough, Will and Elizabeth are sentenced to hang, unless Will can get Lord Cutler Beckett Jack's compass. Will is forced to join another crazy adventure with Jack.Written by
This marks famed visual effects house Industrial Light & Magic's first Oscar win since Forrest Gump (1994). This is also the only "Pirates of the Caribbean" film to win the award in any of its nominated categories (as of 2018). See more »
(at around 3 mins) Near the beginning of the film, when Will is brought in in shackles, Gov. Swann appears with nothing in his hands and demands the guards to stand down. Cutler Beckett hands him the first warrant - the one allegedly for Will - and suddenly Gov. Swann already has a warrant in his hand. As the scene continues, he has anywhere between three and four pieces of paper in his hand for the two warrants. (This error may be related to the fact that in the script Beckett had several lines of dialogue cut from the final film, explaining his appointment to Port Royal, for which the extraneous papers may be related.)

There is in this picture one virtue that covers everything else - this is a story. I compare this film with chess - after every turn or word of this or that hero the situation changes dramatically and the alignment of forces acquires a new character.
Better than anyone can manipulate the moves of Jack Sparrow. He is very sensitive to the nerve of conversation, instantly assesses the situation and gives a decent response to any "gifts" of fate. From the first viewing it is difficult to realize how profound the film is.
Behind external beauty, a good game of actors hides a famously twisted, dynamic and very clever plot.
Everyone who does not like the picture, I advise you to review it more carefully, listening to the dialogue of the characters and trying to understand the motives of their actions. I assure you will get a real pleasure! An outstanding film!
