Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Movie Review
Can't explain how excited me and the gang were about the movie :p We should have known better...tsk tsk..
Let's start with the 3D part. Not deserve its money. Except 2-3 scenes, there was nothing really remarkable about the 3D. Once again, the trailers before the movie (especially Transformers 3) were by far better. So we did spend 5 euros to nothing.
Now, let's talk about the other 7 euros of the ticket which was the movie in general. Forget the old POTC movies. This one is entirely different. While the other were more action-battle related, this one was more of a big adventure with small quests in. I would love it to have some more ship related scenes, especially with Blackbeard's ship. It was still nice though. The story was more careful created and it went a little back to the first POTC.
Special effects, music...can't say much about them. They were almost perfection for me.
And as for the actors...Johnny Depp was good. Jack Sparrow is he role and it had a little more depth as a character in this one. Of course, he was doing anything stupid,weird and out of the mind thing was possible. The movie had more "wtf" moments than all the previous ones together.
Captain Barbossa! Love love love love! He is the only decent pirate in the film. Even if he works for the navy at most of the movie, he still rocks as a pirate! And for first time we saw his character and his thoughts more too!
I think the rest were new pirates. There was a sailor guy, extremely stupid which i believe took the part of the two weirdos from Barbossa's crew from the previous movies.
There was Blackbeard, which for some reason i didn't find him interesting at all. That has nothing to do with the acting though. I just didn't like him and his scenes. He was lame XD His ship was cooler than him.
Angelica didn't impress me either. I think, Penelope Cruz was the most non-convincing pirate of the company.
The priest guy was the hottie. Not much to say about him. He has the part of the love story of the movie.
The mermaids rocked! Totally loved them! One of the best part of the movie! They were beautiful and deadly ^^
Don't know if i forget someone. While i really enjoyed it, i kinda missed Bloom and Knightley. Their absence was noticeable. I recommend the movie, just keep in mind it's different than the old ones.
Oh! And for those who doesn't know. POTC have the tradition to put a small scene after the credits every time. Here is the new one, for those who didn't know or missed it.
