THE PLOT:

Captain Jack Sparrow is a mighty pirate and in mighty trouble when he looses his ship the Black Pearl and the crew has been placed under a curse. After being arrested he's rescued by Will Turner who needs his help to rescue his lady love from the same batch of cutthroats that stole the Black Pearl.

So an unlikely alliance is formed to save his ship and Elizabeth Swan.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Considering this is based on a ride in Disneyland I think they did a great job adaptating it to the screen. The characters, the story, the little inserts from the ride, all clever. The transition from human to monster is flawless. The cast does a great job, I love Jeffery Rush's pirate voice. All and all a great movie, 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I got to admit I am impressed with this movie, I agree with what Zedd said and even though some of the fight scenes run a tad long, I think it's a great flick, worth watching and owning. 9 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ CHARACTERS (The characters are likable.)
+ STORY (The story works.)
+ SCENES FROM RIDE (Recreating the famous scenes from the ride is brilliant.)
+ EFFECTS (Amazing.)

...AND FINALLY...

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- FIGHTS (VOLTRON felt some of the fight scenes ran a tad long.)
