  • Durability:

Pros:Nice detail, durable, good-sized, moderate cost.

Cons:Hmmm ...I wonder if there is a 'Playmate-of-the-Year' Hallmark ornament..??

The Bottom Line: Captain Jack Sparrow is one of the most-recognized movie characters of our day. This quality Hallmark ornament will be a long-lasting memento of his day.


...
This just in from an undisclosed Caribbean island: highly placed sources close to the Crown are suggesting the notorious rapscallion Captain Jack Sparrow has been captured and hanged. Details on our 6 o'clock newscast.


Yes, it is true. The purveyor of holiday charm throughout the year, Hallmark Cards, Inc., has captured Captain Sparrow and made him available for hanging on your own tree for 2011. Or anywhere you might like year round.


Standing five inches tall from the tip of his boot to the end of the barrel of his pistol, Captain Jack is caught in mid-leap. His pistol is held aloft in his right hand, his sword ready for action in his left. His legs are bent, left higher as he leaps into action, his frock coat blowing behind, frozen in time.

The pose seems realistic and the scale of the figure seems accurate and balanced. Veteran Hallmark artist Kristina Gaughran has created a nice rendering of Captain Jack Sparrow. 


Because of his 'action pose' Jack will not stand on his own. A small brass ring inserted in his upper left back ...at perhaps the fifth or sixth rib level (it must be painful) is used to hang him. When suspended  Jack is leaping forward, weapons ready, eyes straight ahead.


The detail work of the ornament is very good, from the beads in his goatee to the buttons on his waistcoat to the red and white stripes of his sash. The facial expression looks real, eyes open, mouth closed (sorry, no gold teeth), dreadlocks nicely molded/colored. The tricorne hat is missing here, his red bandanna covering his head, the white bone in his braid clearly displayed.


At a weight of 2 ounces, Captain Jack is heavier than your average glass bulb ornament . . .but not so heavy that you need worry of tipping a tree over.



The Bottom Line
Captain Jack Sparrow is the anchor character of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. As portrayed by Johnny Depp, Sparrow is the iconic film character of this century. His fans are legion; they will be well served by this quality Hallmark ornament memento of his film presence.



Certified 'lean-n-mean' review.


Captain Sparrow would also invite you to check out fellow Eps user carstairs38's 4th Annual All Things Disney Write-Off. As Jack Sparrow's seminal moment is drawn from Disney's Pirates of the Cariibean ride ...he certainly would want to see that point made.

I would also urge my readers to check out another write-off here at Eps. bilbopooh is collecting reviews of everything seasonal, of every holiday imaginable. Check it out at Announcing the 'Tis the Season Write-Off.

Many things to celebrate this time of year . . .not to be overlooked are all the wonderful writers and *people* here on Epinions dot com.
