It's shorter and leaner than the previous sequel, but this Pirates runs aground on a disjointed plot and a non-stop barrage of noisy action sequences that unfortunately makes this movie like Empire says, dull and crossbones.

Watched last night, enjoyed a lot more than 2 & 3, mainly because it made sense. Helen writes, '...can’t recapture the magic of the first, or even match the narrative drive of its immediate predecessors.' I agree with the first part, but the second? If by 'narrative drive' you mean 'confusing, pointless over-plotted shambles' then I'd be inclined to agree. For me this was an improvement, and I liked the relationship between the awkwardly heroic missionary, phillip and exotic mermaid, syrena. Johnny Depp, as always, is worth the admission price (or Love Film blu-ray selection) price alone.
