Very funny if you have a wacky sense of humour!
Brilliant special effects.
I am writing this review after watching both this and the follow on, Dead Man's Chest, so I have to give this a 10/10, being what I consider to be the better film of the two so far. It was screened on TV over Christmas, and watching it again just confirmed it for me.
Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow is excellent. His crackpot humour, his weird funny running strides and his obvious good looks make Pirate of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Back Pearl a must watch film. The Special effects were brilliant, with skeletons and things running around, and a very odd monkey! The film is not only very funny in places, it is also very exciting as the plot unfolds.
When you have watched this, you will be dying to get your hands on the second film, Dead Man's Chest. Again it is a must watch after you have seen this first one, though not quite up to expectations. I can't wait until the third Pirates film is released though! I'll bet that will be a cracker of a film!
