Plot Summary:
No matter who you are, or how old you are, we all want to be pirates. Based of the famous Disneyland ride, Captain Jack Sparrow dazzles audiences with his quirky personality and absurd problem solving methods. In this story, a boy named Will Turner, the local blacksmith, leads a decent life thanks to the Governor Turner and his daughter, Elizabeth, who rescued him from a shipwreck. Elizabeth is not like most young  ladies who desire marriage and a family; she longs for adventure. Moreover, Elizabeth and Will are very much in love with each other, but their marriage would be very smart and Governor has other plans for his daughter--Commodore Norrington has his eyes on Elizabeth. What used to be a quiet life changed when Elizabeth falls from a ledge, due to a constricting bodice, and is saved by Captain Jack Sparrow.

In the opening scene of the movie, viewers see a shipwreck and a young Will floating on a piece of broken plank wearing a medallion. Elizabeth takes this amulet to protect Will (she did not want people thinking he is pirate), but what we don't realize is that Will is not just an ordinary blacksmith and Jack Sparrow is not just any Pirate captain. This is the first installment of a rip-roaring adventure on the high seas that entails a lot comedy, romance, and just plain awesome explosions and sword fighting.
