Pirates a perfect cinema escape

MERMAIDS and zombies are faced by one of cinema’s most memorable characters – Captain Jack Sparrow – on his quest for the fountain of youth.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the latest film following the comedic and quirky adventures of the incomparable dashing pirate of many women’s dreams – Johnny Depp.

When Captain Sparrow meets Angelica (Penélope Cruz), a woman from his past, he is uncertain if it is love or if she is just a ruthless con artist.

Forced aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, he faces off the legendary Blackbeard, played with suitable menace by English Ian McShane.

Pirates has long been a favourite make-believe game of children, but who would imagine a pirate movie could be so much fun for all ages as this hilarious series?

Beautifully filmed on location in Hawaii, inspired casting of the likes of supporting cast members Keith Richards and Geoffrey Rush, a music score featuring the talents of Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela, this is escapism cinema at its best.

Rating: 4/5 stars
