Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds himself, not entirely voluntarily, aboard the ship of Blackbeard (Ian McShane) and his daughter (Penélope Cruz) in a three-way race against Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and the Spanish (the Spanish) to find the Fountain of Youth (a slightly underwhelming lump of fibreglass).

Writers Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot turn in another pretty OK script that’s commendably less frenetic, complicated and CGI-driven than the last one, but you’ve pretty much seen it all before and this exists purely to keep the franchise current with all its associated theme park rides and merchandise (coming soon to Wii Fit: Pilates of the Caribbean!!!). 7/10

Released May 19, 2011.
