From Disney and Producer Jerry Bruckheimer come all the fun, epic adventure and humor that ignited the original. Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES. A tale of truth, betrayal, youth, demise -- and mermaids! When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love, or if she's a ruthless con artist using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. Forced aboard the ship of the most feared pirate ever, Jack doesn't know whom to fear more -- Blackbeard (Ian McShane) or the woman from his past. Directed by Rob Marshall, it's filled with eye-popping action, mystery and all-out wit. Complete with bonus features, this is one thrilling journey you won't want to end.
Disney et le producteur Jerry Bruckheimer font renaître le plaisir, l'aventure et l'humour par lesquels tout a commencé. Johnny Depp reprend son rôle de Jack Sparrow dans PIRATES DES CARAÏBES: LA FONTAINE DE JOUVENCE, un récit où la vérité côtoie la trahison, la jeunesse, la mort...et même des sirènes! Quand Sparrow retrouve sur sa route un visage familier (Penelope Cruz), il ignore s'il a affaire à une femme amoureuse ou à une arnaqueuse sans vergogne qui ne chereche qu'à se servir de lui pour trouver la légendaire Fontaine de Jouvence. Embarqué de force sur le navire du pirate le plus redouté de tous les temps, Jack ne sait trop qui est plus à craindre: Barbe Noire (Ian McShane) ou cette femme surgie de son passé. Réalisé par Rob Marshall, voici un voyage palpitant, plein d'esprit, d'intrigues époustouflantes, de mystères et de toute une cargaison de suppléments, que vous voudriez ne jamais voir prendre fin.
Can anything keep Captain Jack Sparrow down? Well, as long as Johnny Depp plays the offbeat pirate of the high seas, as he does in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the answer is "Not bloody likely, mate!" This fourth installment of the Pirates franchise is jolly good fun--nearly as good as the first one, in fact. The writing is crisp, the action amazing--and there's the addition of a foe finally the match of Captain Jack: Ian McShane as the dreaded, and dreadful, Blackbeard. McShane seems to be having as much fun as Depp, and that's saying something--channeling his dastardly character on Deadwood but keeping his epithets rated PG-13. Adding to the festivities is the winsome Penélope Cruz, as Angelica, a woman with a past entwined with Jack Sparrow's. Angelica now might be a fearsome pirate herself--or maybe just a cunning con artist tugging at Sparrow's heartstrings.
The action in On Stranger Tides centers on the quest to find the legendary Fountain of Youth in the Americas. But the plot, of course, is incidental in the Pirates films. From the earliest scenes, it's clear the action, and Depp's winking at the camera, are the stars. Captain Jack stages a giant food fight in front of the King of England, culminating in a chandelier scene worthy of The Phantom of the Opera, and he's off at a gallop. Along for the ride are previous cast members Geoffrey Rush (who's sold out and is now an unctuous representative of His Majesty's Navy); loyal sidekick Kevin McNally, who narrowly escapes a death sentence, and then celebrates by leaping on board Captain Jack's fraught mission; and Keith Richards as Jacky's dad, who speaks few words, but wise ones. There are even zombie pirates, and a mysterious mermaid. Pirates of the Caribbean isn't suitable for viewers under 8 or so, because it's dark and intense in spots, but otherwise, it's a rollicking good popcorn film. --A.T.

Now in order to use the Fountain of Youth, there must be a ritual. We discover early on the ritual requires two silver chalices and a mermaid's tear. We also discover that the Black Pearl has been sunk and Hector is working for the crown. Through a series of events, Jack becomes Shanghaied on Black Beard's (Ian McShane) ship. We have 3 groups after the Fountain, the Spanish, the English who have Gibbs who has memorized the map, and Blackbeard. While Jack is in the hold, Angelica is Black Beard's first mate having convinced him she is his long lost daughter. As always in these movies everyone has their own ideas, desires, and shifting alliances.
The group must go on these quests to gather the items before going to the Fountain. (I see an RPG in the making.)
The silver chalices are not just any 2 silver chalices but the ones that belonged to Ponce De Leon.Read more ›
Sparrow has lost the Black Pearl (again)... and he has been captured by the King of England who's looking for the Foutain of Youth as well as the Spanish. The first 10-15 minutes are quite smart, showing Sparrow at what he does best: getting in to trouble. Then, ah, my mates, this is where it all goes downhill. Sparrow meets a past lover who imitates him (a nice but long and tedious silhouette and sword fight) and ends up on Black Beard's ship... he too, is looking for the Foutain.
I won't spoil anything more for ya, mateys, but if you must know, here's what NOT to expect: ships fighting each other on the troubled seas, epic scenes of chase and weird looking enemies... oh, and Johnny Depp's Sparrow feels a few miles off his rocker. It's sad because I really wanted to like this film, but it becomes apparent that Disney wants to turn this into a family franchise. Every attempt from Black Beard to prove how evil he is only shows how evil he is NOT, more like a tired old man mumbling on how evil he is.
Many people probably like this movie, and there are quite a few things to like, also...Read more ›
On Stranger Tides loses Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly, and you probably won't even notice. Depp is joined by Salma Hayek's less busty friend and Ian McShane, and naturally Geoffrey Rush is still around. As one single narrative the movie moves along at a fairly brisk pace, the corny humour is intact and the trademark music swells and exclaims when it should.
If it has a flaw it's that McShane almost feels underutilized and there is relatively little on-ship stuff - the majority of the movie takes place on land. There's also a painfully awkward mermaid story beat, but it doesn't account for an awful lot of screen time.

I was hoping for the item as in the picture, with a cover so that it fits in my collection, but it is without. For the price though, I'm okay with this little change.Published 3 months ago by shezzypants
