Movie Review- Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides
We made a trip to the movies last night and seen the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie On Stranger Tides. The plot kept you interested and over all it was good. I didn't find it as funny as past Pirates movies. Maybe because we have all become so familiar with Captain Jack Sparrow and know how he will react to things going on around him. Don't get me wrong Johnny Depp delivers a great performance as always its just the 4th movie and its becoming predictable.
This time some new characters are introduced Black Beard (Ian McShane) and his daughter Angelica (Penelope Cruz). Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) returns as does Captain Teague (Keith Richards) who is Jack's father. Everyone wants to find the Fountain of Youth and of course there are snags in the plans. Plus some challenges in finding items needed to make the water from the fountain actually work. Like a mermaids tear... the mermaid scene was rather good. So pretty and enticing are the mermaids until they turn into piranha.
We also seen the 3D version, let me tell you I use to hate 3D movies. Mainly because it really bothered my eyes. But now with better 3D glasses and the 3D effects in the movie getting even better it was really good. Instead of things coming out at your face you now feel as if your walking along with Jack Sparrow thru a rain forest or standing in the rain. You feel more "in" the movie it works and was great effects.
Over all we liked it. I give it 5 stars out of 5 stars.
