The Success of the Pirates of the Caribbean in Appealing to a Wide Audience

Pirates of the Caribbean has a wide range of attractive qualities such
as the fast paced action and the way the camera work, music and action
fit in together to make a fantastic family film witch draws
you to watch it again and again.

The hero’s and villains play an interesting part but the best part is
played by Johnny Depp as the anti-hero captain Jack Sparrow. His
cunning personality makes you grin as even in the face of death he’s
laughing and making jokes. For example towards the end of the film
when he is about to be hung he is laughing at the crimes he is about
to be hung for.

He tricks people into a sense of security by making them think that he
was clever and then he turns out to be clever. Just like in the
beginig of the film when he gives some money to the docks man but then
gets it back by taking his money which the docks man left on the side.

The main plot is really about Captain Barbossa and the curse of the
Black Pearl although the film does have many sub-plots which are just
as good, such as wills quest to rescue Elizabeth. The determination of
will makes you want him to find Elizabeth and overcome any boundaries
that stand in the way of him and Elizabeth. The search for Will
Turners’ roots is another imaginative sub-plot. When Jack Sparrow
turns up and reveals to him that his father is not the man Will
thought he was. It turns out that instead of being a respectable
blacksmith his father was a pirate on board the Black Pearl. All that
Will had known has suddenly disappeared and he goes on a mad quest in
search of the truth, his roots. This gives the film a dramatical
aspect and helps appeal to a wider audience. Jack Sparrows’ quest to
find the Black Pearl and once again become the proud captain, gives
the film an exciting edge. The fast paced action like the swordfight
between him and Barbossa at the end, two immortal pirates locked in an
everlasting battle.

This makes the film wide ranged because has romance, action, comedy,
and fantasy, this helps the film appeal to a wider audience.

The fantasy part of the film in my opinion is the best aspect of the
film. The idea of pirates and curses would fascinate the audience to
watch with interest. It is a compelling story line which works well
with the special effects. For example when Elizabeth first learns
about the curse...
