We also wandered WalMart like this. It was great.
I enjoyed the movie, but it was my least favorite of the four. The storyline was lame. Very few twists. It felt like they presented the plot of what could be an amazing film and laid it out clear, and said, "Look what our amazing characters can do!" I expected more. The first half lacked the same POC flavor we have all come to love, and it did get better when they got to the mermaid lagoon. --I am now scared of mermaids, by the way.
Of course, Johnny Depp was hilarious in his reprised role of Jack Sparrow, but Geoffrey Rush's Captain Barbosa stole the show. I like how we delved a little into Jack's moral character, but he really should not be the only star. The show needed another storyline/star like Will and Elizabeth (from the first three) to complement Depp. There was possibility in the love story between a missionary and a mermaid that I feel like could have been explored further, because that fell flat as well.
One of the best lines was at the end. Look for that.
All in all, I give it a C+ for storytelling, and an A+ for cinematography, and a B for acting. It's worth seeing, just don't go with high expectations.
