Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Cap’n Jack Sparrow (Depp) is alarmed to learn that someone claiming his name is raising a crew to seek the mythical Fountain Of Youth. The race is on to find it, with Captain Barbossa (Rush), now the King’s privateer, Captain Blackbeard (McShane), old flame Angelica (Cruz) and a Spanish fleet all after the same secret.

An overly complicated plot and poorly thought-out characters detract from the flashes of charm that Cap’n Jack still emits. Despite quality set-pieces and the best efforts of the cast, this is dull and crossbones.
