Jack Sparrow, our loveable but ship less captain is back with a bang! And this time, this cunning and strange pirate is here to multiply the adventure. The fresh target is the elusive fountain of youth but the path that leads to it is spiky. Add to this, his co-passengers are tricky. What waits next is a series of both welcoming and unwelcoming events for Jack. The film has been handled thoughtfully and it is certainly another well done make of ‘Pirates of The Caribbean’ franchise. There are no dull moments and watching it is fun!
Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) reaches London only to find somebody is using his name to organize a crew. He reunites with old friend Gibbs (Kevin McNally) and discloses the plan to find the beautiful ‘fountain of youth’. But both of them are detained by King’s army. He now meets his arch rival Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) who wants the pirate to take him to the fountain. The quick Sparrow gives Barbossa an escape leaving Gibbs all alone.
With the proceeding, Sparrow stumbles upon his ex girlfriend Angelina (Penelope Cruz). She is the one who was impersonating him for establishing a crew to reach the fountain in order to avoid her father’s – Blackbeard’s (Ian McShane) imminent death. She convinces Sparrow that if he takes her to the fountain, she would help him become the next captain. Sparrow, on the other side, has his own plans. He tries to strike a mutiny in Blackbeard’s ship but fails. Now, with little help around, he decides to take Angelina and Blackbeard to that unique fountain.
But they are not the only team to head to the fountain. Barbossa is also on his way guided by Gibbs, while some Spaniards are also in the same journey. Who succeeds to reach the fountain first? Will Sparrow finally own a ship? What about Angelina? And most importantly, what is so unique about the fountain? The climax has all the answers.
The film lacks the popular pirate-style fighting. But the brilliant performance of the actors steals the show. Sparrow turns out to be more lively and energetic while Penelope does a fine job. More importantly, this one has its unique touch and those who missed its earlier version will understand it without much difficulty. To conclude, ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ is this week’s delightful flick. Don’t miss it!
