"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" [B]

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" proves there is plenty of swashbuckle left in the franchise. The first third of the film has plenty of action and humor and makes promises the rest of the film doesn't quite keep. That's only to say that things slow down a bit and the plot, such as it is, meanders and falters before coming back together for the final confrontation. I think my biggest complaint is that this entry does not have any true distraction from Captain Jack Sparrow. These films really need someone for the audience to identify with and have him bounce off. Other than that, don't bother to see this in 3D, but enjoy the ride.
