Captain Jack Sparrow
Last summer we encountered the crew of Pirates IV setting up camp at Hanalei, Kauai at the ball field of the Lutheran School. Scores of white trucks passing by were quite exciting. We were eager to see how the island would play a backdrop in the adventure we have enjoyed.
We recognized the beautiful interior shots, but of course the play of real and fantasy is what made this series so fascinating. You could never tell when Jack was improvising with great luck, or just was a genius who planned so many moves ahead that he always comes out on top.
The absence of the beloved characters from the early movies made this effort seem worn out, but the mermaid theme, the Christian Character, and the incredible scenery still created a spectacle. So many people find work in a major movie, all over the world. Of Course we waited through the credits for the teaser that opens the possibility for lover's revenge. A fun night out.
