Eyeliner or not, Depp is still the reason to see the movie...to see any of the Pirate movies probably.

... continues not only the tale of (the Sparrow and Barbossa) rivalry but also why (and how well) they ever worked together to begin with.

Captain Jack Sparrow is running on fumes in this enjoyable, but middling, forgettable sequel.

If it had been cut to about 90 minutes, this could have been a bright and breezy adventure that zipped along at a cracking pace. As it is, it's a rather bloated actioner that has one or two great moments.

You know the old saying 'less is more?' I present to you exhibit A: 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.'

Saying that less is more with reference to a film that vomits so much over its audience is absurd yet oddly appropriate here.

This is a darker, more soulful entry with some fun set pieces. But it's definitely wearying and no amount of candle-lit exposition can make a slight plot interesting. Time to lay anchor for good?

As far as franchise films go, this one is better than the previous two. On its own, the film still lacks depth, but is at least entertaining.

Pirates 4 a worthy adventure.

It's not the summer's must-see movie, but it's a fun welcome return to form for a series that proves there are still some exciting escapades of Jack Sparrow yet to be told.

This latest chapter isn't sharp enough to restore the sense of discovery that made that 1st outing so exciting, but it's enough to make up for most of the missteps of the darn arrgh-inducing third one.

One of the most exciting sequences in the 'Pirates' franchise features a spectacular pirates/mermaid clash that makes 'On Stranger Tides' something special.

Does pretty much what it sets out to do -- play up and on those things that have worked in the previous films. It's a lot like one of the later Crosby-Hope 'Road' Pictures.

PIRATES of the Caribbean 4 is a welcome return to the fun and frivolous form of the original.

At least On Stranger Tides aspires towards coherence.

The series has simply run out of steam. Though better than its predecessor, this chapter owes everything to the Herculean strength of Johnny Depp's charm and the presence of Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane.

There are two choices. One is irritation that nothing really makes sense, including the subtitle. The other is to lower expectations and enjoy Jack Sparrow, who is, after all, the only reason the franchise made it past the first film

I, for one, get a tremendous kick out of Depp as Captain Jack. The character is smart, unpredictable and a whole lot of fun, which makes me more than willing to climb aboard and tag along no matter how ridiculous or overwrought his adventures get.

a fun family adventure worthy of the Disney pedigree it boasts
