    You are, without a doubt, the worst pirate I have ever heard of.

    The opening minutes of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl play out almost like one would expect from a film that is a serious, unforgiving, bathed-in-harrowing-realism period film. It sets a foreboding tone, but by the time the credits roll, the film has transformed itself, quite effortlessly, into what is to be the thematic basis for the series: that of a high seas adventure replete with plenty of action and drama, but with a serious sense of humor tossed in, a nearly perfect amalgamation of cinematic gold resulting in one of the most lucrative movie franchises of all time. Unfortunately, the two sequels fail to live up to the lofty standards established by Curse of the Black Pearl. Overly long and complex, introducing new and less interesting characters, featuring acting that becomes stiffer and far less organic, and a script that just tries too hard, the series is ultimately a disappointment. Make no mistake about it, however, each film is an entertaining watch with a treasure trove of special effects and grandiose action sequences.
