I’ll be the first to admit, that when I heard a while ago that Disney were planning to make a movie based on one of their Disney World rides, my first thought was “MAN, that’s going to suck.” I would like to announce that I was way wrong: Pirates of the Carribbean: The curse of the black pearl is an excellent movie! Not only is this one of the best action movies of the year, with all the necessary ingredients (lots of action, excellent special effects and a few laughs along the way), it also has that special something that really catches me: An intelligent script, and excellent dialogue.
And then there’s Johnny Depp. I promise you, you’ve never seen a pirate like him. Every scene that he’s in is interesting just because you can never quite figure him out – and because he’s wildly entertaining. Johnny Depp is one of the finest actors in Hollywood right now, and his performance takes this movie to a whole new level.
