  • . a rollicking carnival of swordplay, stunts, chills and romance -- sly, witty, exciting and, perhaps, the best film of the summer." --, "A giddily goofy bit of old-fashioned nonsense, a swashbuckler with supernatural overtones and a jolly sense of fun that keeps it surprisingly light on its feet." --, "Bruckheimer and pals have cobbled together all of the pirate genre's tropes -- the cannonballs, the sword fights, the glittering treasure -- and freshened them up, throwing in a couple of nods to the Disneyland ride for good measure." --, "Orlando Bloom is the greatest actor who ever lived
  • . The mortal cast members are also enjoyable...and indeed, Captain Jack will get you high tonight." --, " Pirates is Indiana Jones on the high seas, complete with serial B-movie concept, wall-to-wall action, and fantastic myths come true." --, "Yo ho, yo ho! A full refund for me!" --, "This is one of the few summer movies this year that actually feels like a summer movie." --, " Pirates of the Caribbean makes us appreciate the absurd joys of a sadly underused genre, and demonstrates that Walt Disney hasn't entirely forgotten how to show us a good time." --, "A pirate movie made with a pirate's sensibility for filmmaking." --, "From stem to stern this rousing adventure shines ship-shape and Bristol fashion." --, ""If a movie based on a ride can be this great, I canít wait for Log Flume: The Movie or Motion Simulator WITH A VENGEANCE."" --, "This movie is a lot more entertaining than the Disney ride itself, and will perhaps stand the test of time -- and repeat viewings -- even more." --, "The movie is marvelously filmed with visual touches recalling fantasy specialists Terry Gilliam and Ray Harryhausen, among others." --, "I enjoyed Pirates of the Caribbean enough to recommend it but there are a couple of serious flaws with it that should be addressed." --, "A theme park ride has been successfully transferred to the screen." --, 65% Rating: Fresh Avg
