Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penélope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love-or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the "Queen Anne's Revenge," the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past. -- (C) Disney

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Depp, grimacing, edges in and out of the action and seems irrelevant and bored most of the time."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"The franchise is getting tired, but Penelope energizes it..."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
"Precisely the movie this series should be producing now, a generic, harmless spectacle with the added bonus of Johnny Depp goofing off."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Competent, but joyless."
‑ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
""Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is not really a bad film, it's more so a disappointing and forgettable one"
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"I've never seen a film in which what was actually onscreen seemed so irrelevant."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"It's never quite clear what the relationship between Jack and Angelica is. Sometimes it's love, sometimes it's hate; it probably depended on who was writing the script that day."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"A movie so dark, dank and devoid of coherence that you'd swear it exists only to pillage gullible buckos of their bucks."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"There is fun to be had and it's exciting (for a moment) to see Captain Jack Sparrow on the big screen again but the overall production suffers from franchise burnout."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"... continues not only the tale of (the Sparrow and Barbossa) rivalry but also why (and how well) they ever worked together to begin with."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson, MovieCrypt.com
"Ahoy me hearties, No. 4 is surprisingly not bad."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Ian McShane gives Blackbeard as much menace as a goofball romp can handle."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Great production design and a couple well done action scenes make this one somewhat enjoyable."
‑ Jeff Beck, We Got This Covered
"The action ... ranges from fun swashbuckling, to tedious parrying, to outright terribly edited, CGI funk that completely defies any kind of physical presence."
‑ Matt Looker, TheShiznit.co.uk
"By the end of the film you get the feeling that Depp himself is wondering just how much longer he can fake the funk for a paycheck."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
