What’s not to like about the good captain jack .He always seems to find a way to get in trouble?

While on board Angelicas boat he talks to his crew members into a munity of the ship because he thinks black bear d is just a myth. He finds out while munity is taking place Black beard appears from his cabin to jacks surprise. He point his sword at jack and blames him, jack talks himself out of trouble by willing to point fingers at everyone else.
I wasn’t sure if this latest installment would hold up without the original cast mates Orlando bloom and Keri knightly. I was wrong thank god. Penelope Cruz and Ian mcsahne more than filled in admirably in their roles as Blackbeard and his daughter admirably. They couldn’t have found a better area to film the scences for the fountain of youth; Hawaii was the perfect place to film the scenes s for the fountain of youth. I really have to get Hawaii.
All in all Captain jack did not disappoint in his 4th go around in search of the fountain of youth. I give captain jack 4 stars.
