No matter what far-fetched plans Jack Sparrow comes up with, or confusing stories no can ever make any sense out of, there is only one thing that can be said: All the explanation you will ever need is that He is Captain Jack Sparrow. Savvy?

Executives were initially baffled by Depp's eccentric performance, but they wisely gave it their approval, as it turned out to be a smash hit with audiences, becoming easily the most iconic pirate of cinematic history.

The tumultuous love story between Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann is the anchor of the original POTC trilogy. Although these characters received some justifiable criticism in the 2nd and 3rd installments, their absence from the 4th film proved to be a detriment, for their roles were simply replaced with a one-dimensional, forgettable Priest & Mermaid romance.

Barbossa's monkey featured in what appeared to be an after-the-credits twist. Ultimately, the monkey was used as comic relief for the rest of the series.

Barbossa returned for the fourth installment of the POTC series. However, his character, while entertaining, was motivated by revenge for an act that took place offscreen, and culminates in a relative anticlimax - straying away from what made the character so entertaining as an unabashed pirate stereotype in the 'original trilogy'.

Geoffrey Rush proved to be such a charismatic pirate villain that they brought his character back for the third film in the POTC trilogy, At World's End.
