Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Fantasy . Action . Adventure

Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past, and he's not sure if it's love -- or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard, Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

  • Pete Hammond

    This is the perfect summer movie and perhaps the best Pirates of them all.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Depp and Cruz only occasionally strike the sparks expected from two of the world's most beautiful people.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    On Stranger Tides feels as fresh and bracingly exhilarating as the day Jack Sparrow first swashed his buckle.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Marshall delivers old-fashioned swashbuckling action-movie thrills more than computer-engineered grotesquerie. Full Review
  • Ray Bennett

    Captain Jack Sparrow is back in excellent form for his fourth adventure in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which is more serious in the hands of a new director, Rob Marshall, and thanks to Penelope Cruz it's also a good deal sexier.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Serves as a welcome corrective, reviving the fun, feather-light frivolity that any film based on a Disneyland ride ought to exhibit.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    It's a Herculean task to steal the thunder from a Johnny Depp performance, but Richard Griffiths (best known these days as Harry Potter's tubby Muggle uncle, Vernon Dursley) does exactly that.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The picture is cluttered and convoluted and big, and Marshall - taking over the reins from Gore Verbinski - doesn't seem to grasp how exhausting nonstop action can be.

  • Rick Groen

    Judi Dench is much more of a challenge. Drenched in powder and pomp, the grand old Dame pops up in a London carriage. She's there in a flash and then, as quickly, gone, and her fleeting presence is exactly like the fleeting merit of this fourth galleon in the portly franchise: It prompts stirrings, not quite all the way to feelings.

  • Mike Scott

    Best of all, here there be fun.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Frankly, the wow factor isn't that great.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Johnny Depp, back again as the swashbuckling miscreant who favors guy-liner and gold, somehow manages to keep this ship of fools afloat. But just barely.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Even the "surprise" appearance of Keith Richards, as the scurvy father of Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow, has already been hyped to death in the advance press.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    This installment, which is subtitled "Give Us Your Money, Sheep," really isn't a Pirates of the Caribbean movie at all.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    I suppose you have to give credit to the movie for coming up with some badass killer mermaids.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Here's how it goes down: 4 is better than 3, about the same as 2 and worse than 1.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    As a movie, On Stranger Tides would have to be considered a failure. The story does not engage, the characters are stick figures, the action sequences are perfunctory, and the whole enterprise reeks of being a money-grab.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Surprisingly dull.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    To press the point, there is absolutely no need for a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Apart from Cruz, who throws herself lustily into her tough-seductress role, the actors give negligible performances, with McShane, Rush, and Keith Richards in a repeat cameo all playing nigh-identical smug glowerers.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Marshall deserves props for putting the "show" back into the Pirates business. But face it, he's polishing a giant turd.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Ben Sachs

    This is eye-catching and forgettable in the patented Bruckheimer manner, which means you should be entertained if you're not expecting anything new.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The movie is fun until they set sail.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    On Stranger Tides isn't nearly strange enough. Its one real act of piracy is stealing away your excitement.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Repetitious, tedious, and pretty much joyless.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    Small kids won't really appreciate Johnny Depp, either, though frankly he's getting to be less fun as the series ages, possibly realizing that what's riskiest in Pirates 4 isn't walking the plank, but jumping the shark.

    NPR Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It is by far the least strange of all the "Pirates" episodes so far, with none of the cartoonish exuberance or creepy-crawly effects that made its predecessors intermittently delightful.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Despite Sparrow's ongoing flashes of charm, Depp himself seems to know he's coasting.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Depp's performance is still one of the few bright spots in the movie. Richards is back, too, in an all-too-brief appearance as Sparrow's father.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The new movie is simpler plotwise (a race to the Fountain of Youth), while at the same time being somehow more deadening.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    As the seductive and conniving Angelica, Cruz is luminous, albeit not enough to compensate for Marshall shrouding virtually every major set piece in nighttime fogginess.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Helen O Hara

    An overly complicated plot and poorly thought-out characters detract from the flashes of charm that Cap'n Jack still emits. Despite quality set-pieces and the best efforts of the cast, this is dull and crossbones.

    Empire Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    On Stranger Tides has the fishy smell of something washed ashore and sold as new. But this shipwreck isn't worth a wooden doubloon.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The wastrel Sparrow ends up both overexploited and underpowered in this fourth outing.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    I've never seen a film in which what was actually onscreen seemed so irrelevant.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    For a series so steeped in supernatural mumbo-jumbo, Pirates of the Caribbean displays remarkably little sense of wonder.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The IMAX print I saw was so murky as to make you give thanks for the few scenes shot in simple sunlight, the 3-D wasn't worth the bother, and never before have I wanted to chloroform an entire orchestra.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    This isn't absurdity. This is nonsense - and it's as boring as nonsense.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Even the most forgiving moviegoer will recognize this movie as the blatant cash-grab that it is.
