Jack Sparrow

And while I am reviewing movies that I have seen recently I may as well review the latest installment of Pirates of the Caribbean, On Stranger Tides. I saw this about a month or so ago wiuth ‘P’, on the day it was released in cinemas. The best thing that I can say about the film is that it is much better than parts two and three but still nowhere as good as the original Pirates of the Caribbean. It’s always good to see Johnny Depp playing Captain Jack Sparrow and I do like Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbossa and Penelope Cruz as Angelica. Whilst the film is at times quite exciting it is rather over-long and a bit silly. It’s still enjoyable, if only for Depp and Cruz, but it is not as great as the original film.
