Wednesday Review: Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides

I have mixed feelings about this. I think part of the problem is that I expected more. More of what made the trilogy so exciting, so worth re-watching.

OK, sure Orlando Bloom & Kiera Knightly weren't in it, but where was the mention of them? The off handed remark about their very presence? Not like they hadn't gone through a lot together.

And where was the crew of the Black Pearl? Hello mention! A line, a comment, a reminisce. Nada.

The whole mermaid thing was interesting but cheated, I felt. It was rushed, not very well explained, and overall almost an afterthought.

Anyone else have a comment on it?

I've been anxious to see this because of the mermaids. I'm sorry you felt cheated. This is why I need to get my mermaid story out into the world. I hope you wouldn't feel cheated after that. ;)

I love mermaids! And mermaid stories!

But the way they did this story seemed haphazzard and rushed. Like they wanted sooo much in a 2 hour movie and couldn't decide what to cut.
