Overview

Disney DVD gives their sprawling swashbuckler a feature-packed release that is sure to give both your DVD player and PC a workout. Presented in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio, the film transfer is nothing short of perfection. While some may doubt the ability of such a large-scale film to transfer suitably to television, the sharp image and beautiful colors do so with ease and grace. From the creepy moonlit scenes to the sparkling treasure cave, the colors are bright, vivid, and spectacular. With sound options that include THX-optimized DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, Disney DVD has offered viewers a vivid soundscape that perfectly compliments the visual presentation. The DTS soundtrack, in particular, will have viewers ducking under their coffee tables to avoid cannon fire. It seems only once or twice a year that a DVD comes along that truly redefines what can be accomplished on the format, and this is no doubt one of those discs. This release of Pirates of the Caribbean is virtually overflowing with great extra features, and viewers may need a free weekend just to navigate their way through its wealth of materials. Starting off with three separate commentary tracks, viewers will likely want to start with director Gore Verbinski and star Johnny Depp's amusing and informative recollection of the film's production. Though it may not be the most technical commentary, the two play well off of one another, and the result in an interesting and informative track. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer provides a bit more detailed take on the production, and stars Keira Knightley and Jack Davenport check in with what is definitely the most amusing commentary track. It's obvious that the two stars are comfortable with each other, and hearing them joke around as they recall the exhausting shoot is a blast. Writers Ted Elliot, Terry Rossio, Stuart Beattie, and Jay Wolpert's commentary provides notable insight on how the screenplay changed from draft to draft (and script to screen), though one gets the impression that they're stepping on each other's toes a bit to get a word in, and the result is a bit crowded. "An Epic at Sea: The Making of Pirates of the Caribbean" checks in at about 40 minutes and covers everything from location scouting to the spectacular Disneyland premiere of the film. "Fly on the Set" takes a look at both the director in action and how the filmmakers managed their many cinematic feats and sleights of hand. If one wishes to explore the life of actual pirates they need look no further than the "Below Deck" feature, which actually takes viewers aboard a pirate ship to explore the true-life tales of history's most notorious seafaring scallywags. From Blackbeard to Sir Francis Drake to women pirates and Chinese pirates, this informative feature utilizes interviews with maritime historian David Cordingly and film clips and is one of the most fascinating and insightful features on the disc. The accompanying feature, "A Prisoner's Last Tale," also speaks with Cordingly to provide detailed insight on the day-to-day life of a pirate. "Diary of a Pirate" consists of a "Producer's Photo Diary" (which is also narrated by Bruckheimer), a video journal by star Lee Arenberg and a detailed study of the brig Lady Washington (which served as The Interceptor in the film). Deleted scenes mostly offer a more intimate look at the characters, and a blooper reel collects some of the most amusing on-camera flubs. After viewers take a detailed look at one of the film's most entertainingly frightful scenes in "Moonlight Serenade," an image gallery offers production sketches, storyboards, and production and publicity photos. The vintage promotional short "Pirates in the Park" takes them on a nostalgic ride through the actual Disneyland attraction. If viewers aren't entirely exhausted by this point, the DVD-ROM features are sure to do them in. From an effects studio to a virtual reality viewer and storyboard viewer, these intense interactive features will truly put your home PC to the test (the DVD-ROM features will not work on Macintosh computers). From the serious film student to the curious youngster, this release has something for everyone. A must-have for DVD fanatics and fans of the film alike.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
Just when it seemed the pirate movie was moribund, along comes Johnny Depp to revive it, playing one of the wildest buccaneers to ever grace the screen. It’s all the more startling to find this witty, wonderfully eccentric performance in a summer blockbuster produced by action maven Jerry Bruckheimer Pearl Harbor and based on, of all things, a Disney theme park ride. What sounded like a recipe for a Cutthroat Island-style disaster turns out to be a thoroughly enjoyable romp in the grand swashbuckling tradition. The setting is the 18th-century West Indies, and Depp is Jack Sparrow, a down-on-his-luck pirate recruited by a handsome blacksmith Orlando Bloom to rescue the governor’s beautiful daughter Bend It Like Beckham’s Keira Knightly from the clutches of a deadly band of pirates. Led by Captain Barbossa Geoffrey Rush, in a juicy turn, these black-hearted sea dogs are operating under a curse -- they are actually the living dead, who, under moonlight, are revealed to be skeletons. This plot twist adds a nice dash of the supernatural, and the bouts of moonlit swordplay are a ghoulish delight, thanks to first-rate special effects. But the real kick in Pirates of the Caribbean is watching Depp strut and mince in a characterization reportedly inspired by rock ‘n’ roller Keith Richards. Heavily mascaraed, dreadlocked, and effeminate, Depp seems to be subtly acknowledging the homosexuality that was part of the pirate tradition though not in classic Hollywood swashbucklers. Not that this welcome hint of subversion in any way detracts from the film’s old-fashioned, PG appeal. Despite being a wee bit long at two-plus hours, Pirates of the Caribbean is a joyous and unexpected return to the adventure movies of yore, anchored by a memorable star turn.
All Movie Guide
Pirate films have been a curse on cinema for a quite a while in recent years Cutthroat Island, anyone?, and outside of releasing Pixar flicks, Disney hadn't been doing any better quality-wise, so when Gore Verbenski fresh off The Ring remake and virtuoso Johnny Depp came aboard the beloved adaptation of the Pirates of the Caribbean theme-park ride, eyebrows were definitely raised. So how does it stack up? Well, in a time of massive summer blockbusters, this high-sailing ship is definitely a crowd-pleaser. The scale is huge, with technical brilliance in front and behind the camera, while swords clash, cannons roar, and wit is dished out at every corner. Following a kind of Stephen Sommers' Mummy-esque tradition, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl has "lighthearted" written all over it, no small thanks to Depp's brilliantly over-the-top creation, Captain Jack Sparrow. Mix Keith Richards and Depp's Hunter S. Thompson together and you're about halfway there with this brilliantly wild performance. Turning in another juicy role is Geoffrey Rush as the cursed Captain Barbossa, a dastardly villain whom Rush was no doubt meant to play. Also worth mentioning are heartthrobs Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley as the film's love interests. Knightley perks it up as the spunky female lead just fine, though Bloom's soft-spoken manner and delivery are frankly starting to wear thin outside of his Legolas gig. The ILM skeletal effects are well done and neat, especially in the final sword fight between Sparrow and Barbossa where columns of light are used ingeniously in the final effect. For all the thrilling moments though, Pirates is hobbled by one thing: its running time. Well over two hours, it's just flat out too long. Thankfully, with zombie monkey skeletons and Depp virtually stealing the show, the film still manages to deliver. So take the kids, put up your feet, and sing "Yo Ho," for this is one Disney pirate flick that surprisingly does not disappoint. Jeremy Wheeler

    This is the best movie ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I loved this movie sooooooooo much! I saw it in the theater twice and even though it's coming out before Christmas, I'm not even waiting that long to get it! Johnny Depp was so funny in it and the story line was great! Why else has this movie been in the top five in theaters for 3 months? Because it's the best!!!!!!

    The best Disney film to date!

    With it's combination of beautiful secenery, exquiste detail, swashbuckling adventure, and great acting Pirates is without a doubt the year's best film so far, and one of Disney's all time greats. Thankfully, Pirates returns to it's roots by appealing to a wide audience, not just the under 10 or tween crowds. This film reminded of something that I'd forgotten: how much fun going to the movies can be. A must for anyone's Christmas list.

    I LOVE this movie!!

    I Love this movie! Pirates of the Caribbean Curse of the Black Pearl is awesome! It is scary and funny at the same time. I love all the sword fights. I have watched it twenty times. I will never get tired of it. The special effects are great. All the actors did a great job. Jack Sparrow is very, very funny. Be sure yo watch "Dead Man's Chest" and "At Worlds End" after you watch this. They are all great movies. I cannot pick a favorite out of the three. I can't wait untill prat 4 (On Stranger Tides) comes out! I will definately go see it the day it comes to theaters. I LOVE Pirates of the Caribbean!!

    Anticipating the 3rd movie!

    I just watched " The Curse of the Black Pearl" in anticipation of the 3rd movie opening on Friday... Or tomorrow night for those of you lucky ones! This is probably about my 7th or 8th time watching the movie, and with all great movies, there are always new things that you pick up in the movie. There were a couple of references to Will (Orlando) Turner's father I picked up, and I finally noticed that Cpt. Barbosa did not die at the end of the movie.. Hence, his reappearance in the 2nd movie.. How the heck did I miss that before? And it is always cool to watch the transformations of the pirates to skeletons and back again. The scenes in reference to the ride at Disneyland are always enjoyed, as that is in my top 2 rides at Disneyland. Some of the extras on the 2-disc DVD are pretty cool. I liked the Bloopers reel, and some of the deleted/extended scenes were interesting. The "Making Of" was also interesting too. One of these days i will listen to Bruckheimer's take on the movie. "Dead Man's Chest" is tomorrow night, and then I will be in line for the 3rd Friday !

    Easily Made It To My Favorites

    I watched this movie the same day Dead Man's Chest came out in theaters, and watched DMC the next day. And wow-- it was amazing! Since then, I've watched it at least seven times. Every time my sister says: "I want to watch a movie-- which one do you want?", I'd instantly pipe up with "Pirates of the Caribbean!" And note: I have over 20 DVDs on my shelf. GREAT movie!

    Great Movie, Savvy?

    This DVD was sitting in my house for 3 years! This summer, I finally had enough common sense to watch this movie. Pirates is one of the greatest movies made, and it is led by a spectacular cast consisting of Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightly. No matter what your preferred movie genre is, this movie has got to be on your list!

    The Curse of the Black Pearl

    From a park ride but with a story all its own, the title tells it all. Basically about a pirate who tries to get back the now accursed black pearl with help from a blacksmith who tries to rescue a girl from pirates who took the ship from the pirate in the first place seeking vengence. You can watch this again and again no matter how old you are.

    I FEEL....Cold.

    Like most people obviously I liked it! It had the Disney makings of being somewhat chessey and a little slow with the action, but I myself love the chessey and can get over the Slowness of Action! But Johnny Depp is just hilarious. Never been a die hard fan, but I feel this would be my favorite movie of his anyhow.

    This is a wonderful movie.

    I got a new blue ray DVD machine. I alredy have this movie in regular DVD, but I bought it in blue ray and the difference is amazing. You should get a Blue Ray machine and buy this movie first. It is so worth it. I am going to buy the other two slso. If you are a Johnney Depp fan you must by it in Blue Ray. Debbie

    Who knew Disney could be cool?

    I remember that when I first heard that Disney was going to make a movie based on one of the rides at Disneyworld, I was skeptical. What's next? It's A Small World in 3-D? But I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. I should have never doubted Johnny Depp, who has the Midas Touch with all of his projects. He's the sexiest swashbuckler since Errol Flynn, and Orlando Bloom even gives him a run for his money! This movie has it all! Swordfights! Romance! Action and adventure! A must see!

    Cool for a pirate movie!

    I've had this idea in my head that pirate movies are full of corny lines and smelly looking pirates with a missing limb but this one sure dashed all that. With amazing sword fights, Captain Sparrow and a totally entertaining storyline, this movie very much surpassed what I had hoped to see. Johnny Depp and Keira Knightly were so perfect for their part I'm not so sure about Orlando Bloom though, I specially despised him in 'Elizabeth Town' "yuck!" or maybe it's because of Elizabeth Town which is why I'm not such a fan of his right now. Back to the movie, I think it's just... outstanding.

    Great Movie

    This movie had great action and was very adventurous. Of course thats the pirates life. It is funny and I was laughing even when the movie was over. Jack Sparrow is by far the best character ever.He is absolutely hilarious.

    YEah

    The first of the trilogy was amazing! The acting and special effects were better then any other movie at the time of the release. The plot was also new and exciting. The 2nd one was a disappointment for any of you who want to watch it but the first one is AWESOME!

    Pirates of the Caribbean

    This was a really cool movie. The action scenes were great, but the music was what made it exciting. I also loved the dialogue with all of Captain Jack Sparrow's hilarious lines. I've now seen the sequel in the theater, but this one was by far the better movie.
