Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Leaner story and
Smaller scale still can't keep the
Adventure afloat

Some moments feel as
Fresh and fun as the first but
They are infrequent

Clumsy directing
And a lame subplot or two
Really bog things down

Depp does entertain
And buckles are swashed, but it's
Not worth your doubloons

Norse bravado and
Swagger meets demure astro-
Physicist, finds love

Does not take itself
The least bit seriously
Which is a good thing

Hemsworth rocks as Thor
Almost makes up for others
Being under-used

It may be kind of
Empty, but at least it is
Big, bright, loud and fun
