With the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow (memorably portrayed by Johnny Depp) earning legions of fans right across the globe, the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy has proven to be one of the most popular series of films in recent times. Fortunately, there’s good reason too.

The trilogy starts off with the best of the three films. The Curse Of The Black Pearl is a superb piece of blockbuster movie making, delivering lots of laughs, some fabulous set pieces and a core of good, old-fashioned swashbuckling action. With a terrific supporting cast, led by the likes of Geoffrey Rush, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, its running time simply zips by in a flash, and there’s plenty of incentive to hit the play button again once the credits roll.

The second movie in the series, Dead Man’s Chest was more commercially successful, but it’s not quite as strong a film. Nonetheless, there’s still plenty to enjoy, including Bill Nighy’s stunning Davy Jones (the special effects there are something to behold). And it earns extra bonus points for a terrific final twist in the end reel.

And then we arrive at the closing part of the trilogy, At World’s End. This is arguably the most bloated, with a nigh-on three hour running time, but it does pack a lot in. Multiple Johnny Depps for starters, along with some terrific action too.

While the three parts of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy may thus be a little uneven, its nonetheless a collection of films with plenty to recommend. The first part sails away with the top honours, but there’s little doubt that all three are set to entertain audiences for many years to come. --Jon Foster

Looks like a good deal - voted hot.

Good deal, I paid £18 from Hmv yesterday

Sweet deal, maybe I'll surprise my son if I find myself in a Sainsburys soon, thanks!

I think that is a bit harsh. The first two aren't exactly masterpieces, but they are OK as mindless action fodder and could keep kids entertained. The third one, however.... They succeeded in making the plot both idiotic and overly complicated. I guess they must have brought Michael Bay in or something.

After watching the films you'll be singing about the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow. For that alone, I vote hot

In all seriousness, a great price and I actually like them (The third isn't so hot), good, mindless entertainment. Can anyone comment on the quality of the blu-ray transfer?

I love the series to be honest. Definately a good watch for all the family.

1st film was good (compared to 2 & 3)
2nd film is the same as matrix reloaded - incomplete, no ending so feels like half a movie, plus it was rubbish
3rd film, awful in every way possible
People only think these films must be good because it stars Johnny Depp, he never makes bad films, now does he?

I refused to see the 4th movie and will refuse to see 5 & 6

Why would anyone want to watch this awful dross again?

Banned

Hot will check the local out

Johnny Depp, he never makes bad films, now does he?


No, he makes simply awful films. And he's the main reason for their awfulness. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, anyone?

To be honest I don't think they're quaking in their boots.
