Watched this one yesterday! To give you little details about the movie, this is whats there in wikipedia.. (why to type so much, when we can do that by just Ctrl C - Ctrl V ;) )
"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is a 2011 American adventure fantasy film and the fourth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. In the film, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is joined by Angelica (Penélope Cruz) in his search for the Fountain of Youth, confronting the infamous, real-life, legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), the young missionary Philip Swift (Sam Claflin) and the beautiful mermaid Syrena (Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey).The plot draws inspiration from the novel On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers, which also inspired the LucasArts game The Secret of Monkey Island. It is directed by Rob Marshall, written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The movie was distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.The release was presented in Disney Digital 3-D and IMAX 3D, as well as in traditional two-dimensional and IMAX formats." - Source: Wikipedia
And me watched in 3D, not a big difference though. so, if there's going to be a difference in the ticket amount between 2D and 3D version of this movie, better save money, even if its very little and use it to buy extra pop-corn :)
But this movie has a fast screenplay, as usual in this whole series of movie, which keeps you in the seat for the whole movie duration of little more than 2 hours (137 mins to be exact, as per IMDb).
So, how does the movie fair against the previous Trilogy??? well, its 1% below any of the previous movies in all segments (with 1 BIG exception), just because we have seen enough of all these actions of the Captain before, and this movie totally revolves around the Captain. Totally!!! its like seeing his face in every frame of the movie.
Overall, its a movie worth watching once..My final thoughts on this movie is, it would have been more appropriate to name this movie as "Adventures of the Captain Jack Sparrow : On Stranger Tides"
Oh!!! forgot about that BIG exception... in addition to those more beautiful landscapes, you get to see "beautiful" mermaids too...
