I thought this latest installment of the PotC franchise to be mostly uninvolving, and it probably had too much Captain Jack Sparrow in it, as well as some other subplots that didn't really add much to the overly simplified narrative (the search for the Ponce de Leon's fountain of youth). The film featured much less spectacle (did the budget get slashed by a lot?) It had a somewhat long running time (though 30 minutes shorter than the previous installment, but felt just as long). Didn't think Rob Marshall was the right person to direct such a film, and it showed in the final product. The Jack and Angelica hinted-at romance felt forced and stale. A lot of chasing of the chalices between Jack and Barbosa, but uninterestingly so. I give it 2 stars, or a grade of C.
