Just a better "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie because it doesn't drown every second with effects, but the story is a direct copy of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" but with Jack Sparrow and pirates in the role. The lovely Penelope Cruz has good energy with Johnny Depp and I like the bantering between these two. But the new human leading hero is a snore and Ian McShane is totally wasted as the villain.
I primi capitoli sono stati semplicemente geniali, ma con questo stiamo iniziando ad arenarci. Diventa tutto più scontato, meno divertente, con personaggi (buoni o cattivi) meno efficaci rispetto ai precedenti. Barbanera è uno dei pirati più famosi e temuti al mondo e questo film non gli rende giustizia. Temo che il cambio di regia abbia influenzato non poco la qualità di una delle saghe più amate degli ultimi anni.
People always used to say that Johnny Depp was the mais reason to watch these movies, cause of his excentric way of acting, and Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom were lile nothing compared to him, bt i never thought i would have to admit : I missed Keira in this movie. The try of putting Penelope Cruz as a female boring character was stupid, The rest everybody knows : Depp repeating the same boring habits, as usual.
Ho=hum another pirates movie. Some great set pieces but yet another example of flash over substance. The repeating characters seem mostly out of character with the first three films and Depp at this point could sleepwalk through this part. Looks like Ian McShane had some fun or at least a good paycheck. The carriage chase in London and the mermaid attack quite well done. Loved the cameo by Dame Judi.
