Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides review


Great franchise with great movies in the past that I love. This one just didn't hit me.
First of all, I watched this movie at the midnight premiere. I also watched this in 2D. I didn't really feel like spending an extra $3 bucks for crappy 3D.>

I had really good expectations with this film due to the great movies in the past. But no. I thought it was crap; In my opinion I thought it was the crappiest Pirates. My favorite is still Pirates 2.

There were a few things that just bugged me about the movie.
1. The story made no sense once you see the ending *SPOILER* Pretty much the whole movie was about The Fountain of Youth. At the end the damn thing is used by Penelope Cruz's character because she was dying. Just what?!?!

2. The transitions were pretty bad. It was like "I'm on a boat!" (Transition) another person is on a different boat. This crap went on about 3/5 of the movie. It got annoying after a while

3. No character build up. They tried to make the priest and mermaid story important. But it just didn't feel like it was enough.

4. THE SPANISH!!! I had a huge issue with this. At first they were like "Yeah, fountain youth! Lets find this shit." (*SPOILER*) And then when Jack and everyone else finds it, the Spanish out of fucking no where! Were like "Destroy this shit!" Lolwut?

In conclusion I give this movie 2 stars out of 5.
I just really didn't like it. Its enjoyable but not great.
Until next time guys.
See you soon

  2. I did enjoy it also. But I pay close attention to the story and how the story progresses. When it was over, it was just bad

  9. Ehh... not looking forward to this movie so much anymore. Then again there wasn't much to look forward to, since it was pretty much riding on the coattails of the last three.

  16. Still gotta see this, every film that comes out in 3D today is just doing it to suit the craze not because its made for 3D.

  18. Pirates are now officially over done in my opinion.

  19. Pirates win at all things all the time. This movie does not qualify as a Pirate film.


    Also, pirates over ninjas everyday.

    Thanks for the review!
