MY JOLLY SAILOR BOLD

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES (2011)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars 

In this fourth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Jack Sparrow is back and this time, he’s searching for the Fountain of Youth. He’s onboard Blackbeard’s ship, Queen Anne’s Revenge, with his former lover and Blackbeard’s long-lost daughter, Angelica (Penelope Cruz). However, they are not alone – Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and the Spaniards are also after the elusive fountain.

Jack Sparrow: You know that feeling you get when you’re standing in a high place… sudden urge to jump?… I don’t have it.

Well, the POTC series does feel different without Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley but I guess I’m pretty satisfied as long as Johnny Depp’s in it! And I liked that he said “Savvy?”! There’s plenty of action, fighting and romance! I didn’t really like the “stirrings” between Jack Sparrow and Angelica but I dig the one between Philip and Syrena! I think Philip is the fittest missionary around – Hello, HE HAS ABS!

The mermaids were nothing like Ariel but more like Jaws so do not be deceived! The action and fighting is good but not as thrilling as those in the previous films. And I spotted another handsome guy – the Spaniard is played by Oscar Jaenada, who was the sniper in The Losers!

Stay till the end of the credits for an extra scene!
