"Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise - this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. 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 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 formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past." - Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures


Verdict: Although it's not as good as any of the previous installments, On Stranger Tides is still decently entertaining; rich with humour and special effects. Director Rob Marshall may not have done as well as Gore Verbinski here but at least he managed to keep protagonist Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as witty and amusing as he was. 3-D screening is highly NOT recommended as I don't think there's too much of a difference compared to the normal one, and the subtitles are eye-hurtingly distracting.

Favourite quote: Angelica: "Why is it we can never meet without you pointing something at me?"

Why... (SPOILER BEGINS HERE) does the mermaid Syrena rush to assist Jack Sparrow after Philip cuts her free from being tied to the tree? Why doesn't she attack humans like the others in the first place? Aren't they like vampire mermaids? And why doesn't Angelica try to fight Jack to avoid being left on the island at the end? Don't make no sense to me, dawg. (SPOILER ENDS HERE).

Post-credit scene: (SPOILER BEGINS HERE) Angelica, left alone by the beach on the little island, finds the voodoo doll of Jack Sparrow washing up ashore. (SPOILER ENDS HERE).

Rating: 3 / 5

Date for the show: Iris Loong

Her verdict: "Not bad lah. Funny."
