I went into Pirates 4 with low expectations. Generally a film series designed as a trilogy doesn’t fare well when the producers try to stretch it to a fourth film.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that this film was entertaining and fun. It wasn’t nearly as good as the first film but it doesn’t suffer from the over use of special effects that the third film did.
As usual the film sparkles wherever Johnny Depp is on the screen and slows down dramatically when he isn’t. His portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow if still a delight to watch on the big big screen.
Ian McShane was excellent as Blackbrard, he is really a fine actor especially in the role of the bad guy.
I don’t know if the series can stand another film but if Depp is involved I would go see it.
