A movie that has no reason to exist but to make money, especially if you consider the unnecessary 3D. Everything is so silly and predictable, the characters are mostly annoying, and you know something is very wrong when even the action scenes feel repetitious and underwhelming.

Perhaps it is because I had such low expectations of the film prior to seeing it, and while I like Cruz, she is a terrible cast for her role.Still, this film was better than its confusing predecessor. Luckily Depp and Rush carry a fast paced film that could have used more character development regarding the Spanish, Phillip, and the mermaids..

I had low expectations for this movie and lived up to it. The first movie was amazing and has gone downhill since. This did not add anything new to this movie series. It was predictable and just plain boring at parts.

Tired and rote exertion by all parties involved. Incoherent narrative interrupted by tedious and poorly choreographed action sequences whose weaknesses are accentuated by the heavy-handed scoring and sound effects intended to cover up those very flaws. Barely reminds the audience of the charm of the original.

The fourth Pirates film loses its way and miss the charisma that Bloom and Knightley bring. It's just Depp this time around and is often boring with a lack of fun that the previous films have.

Literally couldn't get through the entire thing in one sitting, so boring compared to the ones that came before it. None of the new characters were interesting in my opinion and Jack couldnt hold up the story on his own, especially one as lazy as this one.

You might be thinking that half a star is too harsh for a mediocre film, but they didn't have to make this movie until they had a script worthy of continuing the series and they jumped straight in anyway.

A below par Pirates movie, Not as good as I hoped it would be but much better than At Worlds End, Johnny Depp does well to carry on the series without most of the original cast involved, The 3D was ok but not great or used an awful lot, Nothing special but worth a look (Just).

Better than At Worlds End, On Strangers Tides exceeds in every way, bring on the next adventure!

Perhaps as entertaining and satisfying as a bowl of goat's spit on a cold winters day. It looks flashy and full of colorful music, acting, and decor with nothing of nutritious value or taste.

After seeing 2 & 3, I vowed not to see Pirates 4. However, I succumbed. Chiefly because I wanted to go to the cinemas and had a free ticket and there was nothing better to see. I thought it would be ok. After all, this film didn't have Orlando Bloom or Keira Knightly. I had hopes that two wet rags would replace them and that the film would be a lot better than its two predeccessors. I was disappointed, twice. Firstly, there were no wet rags and secondly, the film was as dull as dog shit. Part of the reason is that there is no plot or character development. If you are making a film with a character in it for the 4th time, they need to develop and expand in some way. But no, it's just the same Jack Sparrow and Barbossa but worse, because they are riding on the coat tails of their success and originality of the first film but are falling far too short. The worst part is that I know I will go and see Pirates 5 when it comes out and I know that I will hate it.

No excuse for it's existence, barely watchable

so much talent wasted and chewing scenery....makes it obvious that Will and Elizabeth were the heart of the first 3.....

A horrible film in my opinion. This uneccesary sequel to a very successful trilogy ruins the whole first three movies reputation. Its plot simply has no interesting points and its action is way off from the first three movies. Very disappointing. And its hefty budget is wasted as I was expecting better.

On Stranger Tides was not that bad but wasn't good either. I still enjoyed seeing Captain Jack Sparrow but the plot was okay. I hope on the next pirate movie they do a better job.
August 14, 2016
The visuals are fun and the action sequences passable, but the fourth "Pirates" entry finds the series in desperate need of something fresh and new.
½ August 10, 2016
It has it flaws but I still like it a lot. Especially Jack and Barbossa.

Lacking much of the spark of the original trilogy, this installment seems very much like the enjoyable cash grab that it is. The new direction of Rob Marshall also lacks the scope and fun of Gore Verbinski. Why would you hire a guy who has never done an action picture to direct a four-quel in an action oriented franchise? Don't you almost deserve the the lackluster pile you get from it?
