My Penny of View : Two fisherman caught a man in their fishing net and the man claimed that he served Juan Ponce de León who reported died 200 years ago. The man said the exploration crew found the Fountain of Youth. The man was brought to the Spanish King and the king ordered his Secret Service to find the fountain. On the other hand, Gibbs has been mistaken as Captain Jack Sparrow and he was put on a trial. Captain Jack showed up by pretending as a judge and put Gibbs under life prison and transferred Gibbs to jail under minimum security. During the planned escape, both of them were arrested by crown forces. They brought Captain Jack to the British King. The king wanted Captain Jack to guide the British expedition to find the Fountain of Youth with Captain Hector who lost a leg and the Black Pearl. Captain Jack successfully escaped and he found out that the impostor was his former love, Angelica. After escaping from the crown forces, Angelica put Captain Jack to sleep and brought him on board the Queen Anne's Revenge which commanded by the cruel Blackbeard. What will happen to Captain Jack? Will he able to find the Fountain of Youth?

It is the first Pirates of the Caribbean film to be released in 3D since the last movie in 2007. Captain Jack Sparrow who walks with a slightly drunken swagger and has slurred speech and flailing hand gestures back in action with more exciting story. The story was interesting. In this movie, the pirates were exploring the journey to find the Fountain of Youth. During the exploration journey, they met mermaids. I think that scene was heart thrilling, the mermaids were fast and cruel. The legendary Blackbeard made appearance for the the first time. I was amazed by his mysterious power to control the Queen Anne's Revenge. However, the whole movie was quite dark. So, don't watch this movie when you are tired or sleepy. This film has nice scenery because it was filmed at Hawaii. The soul of the movie is Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. I can say "He did it again." No one else is able to carry the role of Captain Jack Sparrow as good as Johnny Depp. After this movie, I'm looking forward for his next expedition. One more thing, watch 2D is just good enough because the film is interesting with the story and characters, not the 3D effects.

Don't be charmed by their beauty

Blackbeard's Queen Anne's Revenge

Rating : ★★★★☆
