To me Johnny Depp is just marvellous, I even like Orlando Bloom!
The story is great ... the graphics are marvellous. A real "proper" story.
More scenes to the theme tune (which I have played in the band I used to be a member of!)
I will admit I only "liked" folms 2 & 3, and have yet to see 4! But The Curse of the Black Pearl is a truly brilliant film.
