For those who have been waiting to see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at the comfort of your own home will be glad to hear that the Walt Disney Studios has revealed the details about the release of this film on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D. The three discs will be available on October 18, 2011 and the releases will feature bonus materials.
Once again Johnny Depp reprises his role as Captain Jack Sparrow and it has been 4 years since the last we saw him in the 3rd film of the POTC franchise. This time he is returned in a different tale that has less related to the earlier films. OST may be the shortest film of the series but it’s still enjoyable, possibly the Jack Sparrow who is so much witty and all the time offers for some entertainment.
The story follows Sparrow who is still up to his aged ruses and is requested by King to lead a voyage to discover the Fountain of Youth. Sparrow ought to contract with his past lover Angelica, who happens to be the daughter of Blackbeard. They require the tear of a Mermaid and 2 silver chalices to make it work.
The storyline was decent and the enclosure of the mermaids was a pleasant one and was very appropriate into this film. The cast is wonderful; Will and Elisabeth are no longer in this installment while Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley return, Johnny Depp remains brilliant as Jack Sparrow. Geoffrey Rush was once again remarkable as Barbossa. Ian McShane did a solid act as Blackbeard. Penelope Cruz was excellent as Angelica. Johnny and Penelope had chemistry and were authentic and worked out fine.
The OST presents a little of a same old vibe with Sparrow elaborately dodging from custody once more and combating at the same time as balancing on beams. It may have fascinated in the previous films and in spite of being well performed is becoming absolutely old as a notion in this one. I also sensed that the enclosure of several sub-plots didn't add anything to the tale but somewhat detracted from it instead. Regardless of this, those who are enthusiasts of Sparrow will not be let down as it surely is better than the last two installments.
Overall, OST will keep you amused with some great action scenes, humor and a some solid performances.
