Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides 3D Blu-Ray 5-Disc Combo Review



Synopsis: From Disney and Producer Jerry Bruckheimer comes all the fun, epic adventure and humor that ignited the original. Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. A tale of truth, betrayal, youth, demise - and mermaids! When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love, or if she's a ruthless con artist using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. Forced aboard the ship of the most feared pirate ever, Jack doesn't know who to fear more -Blackbeard (Ian McShane) or the woman from his past. Directed by Rob Marshall, it's filled with eye-popping battle scenes, mystery and all-out wit.

Review: The Pirates franchise is one that took me by surprise.  When the first film came out I fully admit that I expected it to be terrible.   The concept sounded silly to me from the word go and I just didn't see how they could make Pirates relevant.  Boy, did I eat my words.  The first two films were absolutely amazing and the third fell a little short for me.   I had high hopes for this 4th installment and prequel to the series and again my expectations were not only met, but far exceeded.  This one is all-out action, humor and amazing fun!  Its a popcorn eating, summer movie that will appeal to any and everyone.  This time around they are dealing with Blackbeard and a beautiful woman that may or may not be his daughter.  Jack Sparrow is Jack..the crew is there on the Pearl and even Barbossa is still there as first mate!

The 3D blu-ray looks amazing!  Its wonderful to finally see the Pirates franchise in 3D.  There is no ghosting and the amount of 3D moments is really amped up from a lot of other recent 3D features that just don't live up to the hype.  Even at home, this one is worth having in 3D.
