I don't see how you can say that. This movie had a definite storyline and plot. Any of us could outline it for you if you'd like.

This was one of the few movies that I really enjoyed this year. I would say it's the best of 2003 so far, but that wouldn't really be saying much.

I had pretty high expectations for this when I went to see it in the theater, and I still managed to come out pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. Just a fun time all around.

Am I the only one who thinks Zoe Saldana (AnnaMaria) was hot?

The films only plus is the outlandish performance of Johnny Depp.

Everything else stinks: the story, the sets, all the other actors, etc.

Enjoyable movie but forgettable and overlong. A silly movie based on a Disneyland ride about pirates would've been really good as a tight 1 hour 45 film, not an overstretched repetitive piece of fluff that approaches the length of ****** Apocalypse Now.

Saw it in the theater and though it was pretty good but nothing special. Saw it again on DVD and now I think it's the best pure popcorn adventure movie since Raiders. Yeah, it's a little long, but how much of a criticism is that really?

The music does suck, though.

Really? I thought the music was one of the strong points of this film.. It seemed to really fit well with the scenes and action.
Klaus Badelt is moving up on my list of great composers, especially after Time Machine.

I too thought the music was excellent. I'm not sure I understand the complaints. My friend even picked up the soundtrack.
