We all popped down to the Odeon to catch Johnny Depp’s latest caper as the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow – ‘Pirates of the Caribbean – On Stranger Tides’.
After the slightly lack-lustre third instalment, I think every fan was hoping this would be a return to the magic of the first film. Certainly when we saw the previous instalment, it felt a little like a franchise stretched too far, even though all the main characters were as competent as ever.
So, how was it? Well, it was an enjoyable romp all the way through, and Johnny Depp has made the role his own – no question - but it did feel to me, like they should now retire the franchise altogether – it was all just a bit predictable.
Trouble was, the ending gave every sign there’s another one coming!
