Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Captain Jack Sparrow met with Angelica, a woman of his past. she forced him board Blackbeard's ship, for him to lead them to the Fountain of Youth. after rescuing his formal shipmate, Jack was captured n brought before King George who wanted to beat the Spanish by reaching the fountain first. coincidentally, the King's army was led by Barbossa. Jack was thrown to n fro between the 2 groups. to gain a longer life, the water from the fountain must be drunk from 2 chalices, 1 added a mermaid's tear. Blackbeard ordered his men to capture a mermaid n carried it along their expedition.

again, Johnny Depp returned as the goofy pirate, whom we absolutely adored! not having Orlando Bloom n Keira Knightley proven to be not a loss at all, especially when Penelope Cruz took over with an even stronger character, keeping us even further entertained. this sequel was as action packed as the previous, filled with swords fight, mermaids, telling the story of truth, betrayal n youth. having seen a lot more Blackbeard n Barbossa turned out to be very satisfying as well, especially when you need not take sides!

  3. lina:
    n you should! it was awesome!

    i can't really remember each n every of the sequels anymore, maybe it's about time i re-watch some of them!

  4. HA! You're not going to believe this, but while walking down the street a few days ago, I saw a billboard advertisement for this film on the side of a bus! I actually took a photo of it, but it didn't turn out :(

    I can't wait to see this film! The cast is brilliant!

    Thanks for sharing an awesome review, Levian!

  5. I'm wondering why this movie is so successful & so this is the 5th? Can't believe it ;-)

  6. havent watch this. waiting for friends to download instead. haha!

  7. ron:
    was the bus too quick? or did the photograph blurred? too bad we didn't get to see it, which i'm sure it's gonna be awesome!

    haha, i suppose it was because we have Depp casting it. he is such a legend, truly!

    haha, either way, i'm sure you will enjoy it!

  8. Did you like Sam Claflin in the film? He's my favourite young Brit :)

  9. dezmond:
    ah, the young priest. he wasn't flashy enough to truly capture our attention, but i agree on him having a good character!
