Avast, Ye Pirates

As much as I expected it to be a big budget wash out, Pirates Of The Caribbean is actually reasonably entertaining. Johnny Depp leads with his usual balance of excellent timing and quirky delivery, Keira Knightley plays her part adequately, and Orlando Bloom… He showed up.

Yes, the plot is predictable, some of the lines are horribly overwritten, but there are enough mildly amusing bits to make it a worthwhile watch. Certainly a lot better than that hideous dog shit I watched later the same day.
