I was only in Kindergarten when this movie came out, so I didn't see it in theaters. In fact, I saw Dead Man's Chest and At World's End before I even saw this. Nevertheless, I was impressed when I first saw this (I was in seventh grade). Even though the effects weren't as good as they were in Dead Man's Chest and At World's End, I still managed to enjoy it a lot. The swashbuckling action violence was very nice, as was the acting, especially from Johnny Depp. Orlando Bloom and Geoffrey Rush were also great, and Kiera Knightly was a nice as the film's hottie. I have never been to Disneyland or Disneyworld, so I haven't ridden the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, but if I do, I hope it's as satisfyingly jarring as the film!
