Blackbeard is also on the hunt for the fountain of youth but for a very different reason. A prophecy says Blackbeard will be killed by a one legged man within two weeks. Add into the mix a mermaid chase and capture of Syrena (Berges-Frisbey), A religious man Philip (Claflin), The Spanish Navy and Jack trusted first mate Joshamee Gibbs (McNally). All these characters will come together and race to find the fountain of youth first.
Verdict The fourth in the series but really the third in the stories and you can tell. Jack Sparrow is pretty much the only reason to watch this pretty much used up franchise. On the other hand we have some great sequences, which fill in the talking which seems all samey and along the lines just trying to one up each other. If you are a fan of the first three you will enjoy this as well Jack saves the movie and the day.
Story Mark 7/10 Much more along the lines of the first but poor additional characters prevents it from going to the next level
Action Mark 7/10 A nicely choreographed escape much like the first one and some good sword fights but nothing that stands out as original.
|Captain Jack Sparrow|
