Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

In their fourth adventure, Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) embark on a quest to find the elusive Fountain of Youth. Also stars Penelope Cruz, Gemma Ward and Judi Dench.

Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past, Angelica (Cruz) - but is this love or is she a con artist using him to find the Fountain of Youth for herself? When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack's thrust into an adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: the pirate or the woman?

Based on the pirate novel On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers and the first in the Disney series not to be directed by Gore Verbinski. This time it's Rob Marshall (Nine, Chicago) at the helm.

Serves as a welcome corrective, reviving the fun, feather-light frivolity that any film based on a Disneyland ride ought to exhibit.

Hoist the main sail, shiver your timbers and ready your hearties, it's back to the high seas we go...

Total Film

Not as incomprehensible, or interminable as At World’s End, but no amount of flash and filigree can conceal a disappointingly soulless, directionless adventure-by-numbers.

All swash, little buckle: welcome back to the theme park ride that NEVER ENDS...

It is by far the least strange of all the "Pirates" episodes so far, with none of the cartoonish exuberance or creepy-crawly effects that made its predecessors intermittently delightful.

A poorly scripted film has its forked tongue sticking out of both cheeks.

For me, it's too much of a muchness.

Captain Jack Sparrow is back in excellent form for his fourth adventure in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which is more serious in the hands of a new director, Rob Marshall, and thanks to Penelope Cruz it's also a good deal sexier.

An overly complicated plot and poorly thought-out characters detract from the flashes of charm that Cap'n Jack still emits. Despite quality set-pieces and the best efforts of the cast, this is dull and crossbones.

This is stodgy direction, without any flourish or swagger, in the service of a film with nothing on its mind but pulling in the most money for the least expended effort.
