'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' is More of the Same



According to Peter Travers, there's almost nothing to say about Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth film in Disney's popular franchise. It's just more of the same. He's bored by the constant sword fights and the plodding, incoherent plot, but did like a 3D sequence featuring a bunch of terrifying mermaids, a single funny line from Keith Richards and the lighter touch of new director Rob Marshall.
