You are without a doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of.

The Caribbean sea, in the 17th century. A legendary treasure is hidden on a lonely island in the Caribbean but soon is found and taken by the pirate crew of Captain Barbossa. Later they realise they have been horribly cursed with the moonlight revealing their new true nature.

To break the curse they need to find all the spent coins and one of those happens to be with the beautiful daughter of Governor Swan: Elizabeth. Of course the pirates come to shore, destroy the port, kidnap her and sail off to break the curse.

All would be easy for them if not for Will Turner who has fallen deeply in love with Elizabeth and seeks to save her. To do so, Will frees and teams up with the extravagant pirate Jack Sparrow and a wild goose chase begins in the beautifull Caribbean. But Jack is following his own course…

So bring all your rum and ship ahoi!

Here -- in a Jerry Bruckheimer-produced high-seas adventure that incorporates roaring cannons, oddball comedy, a love story and more than a touch of the supernatural -- Depp unleashes his theatrical bravado. He's hilarious. (Newsweek)
