Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

A big load of nothing. The inventive insanity of Verbinski's trilogy has been replaced by sleep-inducing tedium. Any sense of fun or spectacle or even eccentricity has completely vanished and Jack Sparrow is bordering on self-parody. The direction is clunky, the visuals are drab, the characters are lacklustre, the comedy falls flat and the action sequences are woefully unimaginative.

Perplexing that a film as insipid as this is currently the most expensive ever made. Evidently the money wasn't spent where it really mattered.
