I've seen both and this is a no-brainer. Depp owns Crowe.

I always liked the "Adventures of Captain Jack" comics that Fantagraphics released in the 80's. Sigh.

Jack Sparrow all the way. Maybe it's because I just don't like Russell Crowe, though.

Loved both films, but skill-wise I'll have to go with Aubrey.

Captain Jack Sparrow is one of the greatest movie characters of all time.

Master and Commander is the far better film, but Johnny Depp is so brilliant in an otherwise unremarkable film that he runs away with the win.

Come on, where's all the pretentious blockbuster haters now? How can there be this much difference? Oh well, Depp's still 'cool' I guess
