Plot: Johnny Depp, in an Oscar-nominated performance, steals the show as flamboyant Jack Sparrow, a freewheeling 17th-century pirate who roams the Caribbean Sea and butts heads with a rival pirate (Rush) bent on pillaging the village of Port Royal. When the governor’s daughter (Knightley) is kidnapped, Sparrow decides to help the girl’s love (Bloom) save her. But their seafaring mission is hardly simple.
