"wake up me hearty's you're home"
Pirate's of the Caribbean 4: Stranger Tides came to cinemas today and my mother and I booked our seats for the 3:10pm viewing.
At first, the screen would black out for minutes on end, something to do with the TSM or something like that...
Anyway, eventually we got to watching an amazing film.
Of course, there had to be a love story entwined in the fantastic action scenes and there wasn't just one, there were two (apart from the romances with the pirate's and their ships).
Finally, Captain Jack Sparrow (the gorgeous Johnny Depp) got his love story with the beautiful Angelica, played by 'La Encantadora', Penélope Cruz. She was an old fling. Well, they truly loved each other no matter how much they said they didn't.
Then, there was the relationship between the boy who had a faith, Philip (Sam Clafin) and a captured man-eating mermaid, Syrena (Astrid Berges-Frisbey). He saved her and she saved him in different ways. The end for them is open to all possibilities as it turned out that the mermaid could walk, but they both went deep into the dark sea together in their last scene.
As I said, action filled the screens with fights between the English, Spanish and BlackBeard's pirates, but there was another group that definitely won a few battles, the mermaids.
The mermaid's faces turned into a vampish style, fangs and different cat-like eyes, just after they had lured a man in and just before they went in for the kill. They jumped, flew, swam and screamed as well as using a whip of some sort to drag people into the dark waters.
It was truly an adventure, a rollercoaster of events as per usual that led up to the climax of the Fountain of Youth.
The Fountain of Youth turned out to be a different element of the world altogether, where the characters rose up through water from the ceiling and landed in a wave of mist. More action occurred as all three voyeurs arrived in the Fountain of Youth together. BlackBeard lived up to be the selfish pirate he was and Jack Sparrow saved his 'damsel in distress'.
A few images of the film itself...
(apart from the last one, I think this is the third, sorry for the mix up! my bad!)
As you can see from the images, there are a mixture of emotions that occur throughout the film.
