The Pirates franchise started relatively well with The Black Pearl. Family-friendly pirate film, that was a bit on the long side and mainly aimed at children, but it worked. From then on it just became a money machine with a little too much Jack Sparrow in the foreground. We've had enough of the type now, who, moreover, is first and foremost a creep who gets out of everything and mainly thinks about himself. Not really a hero really.

In this movie we get to see Blackbeard, and that's about it. Until then, the terror of the pirates... And Barbossa is especially annoying. Between that mess, Penelope Cruz is not that bad, if her role is not that special either. The film lacks creativity and you just see the directors thinking 'just do something, I'm just counting my money...' But it sells, so the franchise will certainly continue?

I hate that monkey

Part 4 is unfortunately a lot less than the quite acceptable 3rd part. I still consider the second one to be the least of the set, but part 4 doesn't score very high either.

As far as I'm concerned, this is mainly due to the plot that is related to deception and double deception, not so much that it becomes cluttered, but that I have something that is fine with me and I mainly watch pictures. In the absence of Davy Jones, the illustrious name Blackbeard is used this time. Nice but nothing extra. As far as I'm concerned McShane doesn't do much with the role and since Barbossa is also a bit in a proverbial corset role, we have to rely mainly on Jack's well-known repertoire. Nice but not enough to compare with the other parts.

A nice addition, and something extra, I find the mermaids, and the towards 'preacher' loving copy. The boats in the bottles obviously look very nice and the overall style and visual spectacle is more than okay. Still, it's all too thin for me. Nice for once, but not special is the end result.

Knightley and Bloom do not return in this fourth Pirates of the Caribbeann. Sam Clafin and Astrid Beregès-Frisbey provide a romantic subplot this time, but that is insufficiently developed. Richard Griffiths is amusing in his role as the somewhat overestimating King George who gets hold of Jack Sparrow [Johnny Depp], but changes his mind when Jack claims to be the only one who knows where 'The Fountain of Youth' (yawn !) is located. The King forces Jack to join an expedition to this location. The first snag? The leader of this expedition is Jack's old nemesis Barbossa [Geoffrey Rush]. In addition, Jack's longtime love Angelia [Penélope Cruz] resurfaces and his warns Jack that Blackbeard [Ian McShane] is also looking for the same source because a prophecy says he will be killed by a man on one leg in two weeks. Would that be Barbossa? And who will be the first to reach The Fountain of Youth? A vague, clichéd excuse for a bland, routine, somewhat cynical cash-in that should have been the death knell for this franchise. Unfortunately there was a sequel: Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales.
