Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

curse of the black pearl

Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) shows up at Port Royal in the Caribbean without a boat or group. His planning is untimely, nonetheless, because soon thereafter the town is attacked by a privateer transport. The privateers grab the lead representative’s little girl, Elizabeth (Keira Knightley), who’s in control of a significant coin that is connected to a revile that has changed the privateers into the undead. A chivalrous metalworker (Orlando Bloom) in affection with Elizabeth aligns with Sparrow in the quest for the privateers.
