Cutthroat Island

(11 votes, average: 7.36 out of 10)

Cutthroat IslandA relatively simple pirate adventure story. The daughter of a pirate captain takes over the leadership of her crew and searches for some hidden treasure.

Although it is an unrealistic and fanciful depiction of pirates and their era in the Caribbean (or maybe because of that), it is still an enjoyable movie.

Plenty of action and entertainment, yet nothing offensive.

Year: 1995

Girl gets kidnapped by pirates, boy goes to her rescue.

This is what I call a great pirate movie.
Great special effects and fun pirate adventure.

The first movie of the three is by far the best (The Curse of the Black Pearl). The first is suitable for supervised family viewing (undead skeletons, and people do die). The second two get a bit more violent and confusing (but are fun nonetheless).

The three movies are:

Pirates of the Caribbean – The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Man’s Chest (2006)
Pirates of the Caribbean – At World’s End (2007)

Years: 2003, 2006, 2007
