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
