Saw Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides yesterday. It was a morning show @ 10:00 am and still the theater was full.
Before going to watch the movie i didn’t have big expectations for the movie because as with each sequel the story got more and more convoluted. If some story and good visual were there i would have been happy. And it didn’t disappoint even though the story is a bit convoluted, compared to the previous movies its good.
If you love Jack sparrow you will love this one, unlike the other movies where it felt like he was doing cameo among other characters. This time he is in 95% of the movie, i am finding it hard to think of a scene where is not present. So its Jack Sparrow all the way and Johnny Depp doesn’t disappoint, he is funny and at his manipulative best.
I will not spoil the movie by revealing all the story details. Its about finding the fountain of youth as revealed in the trailer. I had my doubt about Penélope Cruz and i didn’t like her in the movie. But Johnny Depp makes anyone look good. All in all a good fun summer entertainer, and in the end they leave a loop hole for the next movie.
This movie has made 400 million in just 4 days worldwide so expect a sequel for sure. Hoping Jack Sparrow forgot Captain Jack Sparrow continues to entertain us for long time to come.
A good summer movie and is a must watch.
Best lines of the movie for me was by Johnny Depp saying “Did everyone see that? Because I will *not* be doing it again.” & “You know that feeling you get when you’re standing in a high place… sudden urge to jump?… I don’t have it.”
