Blackbeard's (Ian McShane's) ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge, was actually a modified version of the Black Pearl, one of the vital ships in the film franchise. The Sunset, as it is called in real-life, was used in the latter two parts of the first three, and in 2010 redesigned to portray the Queen Anne's Revenge in this installment. The biggest change was above deck. The back was cut off to deck level, and rebuilt again in two stories. See more »
(at around 57 mins) When Jack Sparrow and Angelica are together, she is holding the doll after she showed him the Black Pearl in a bottle. He puts his hand on her shoulder. The letter P burn mark on his hand is visible, but it is not in the same place or even the same mark as shown in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, when Jack Sparrow first met commodore Norrington.

Aha. Dead end. Dead. End. Dead end!
Jack, I'm starting to think you don't know where you're going.
It's not the destination so much as the journey, they say.

Immediately after the credits, Angelica is shown sitting on the beach when the voodoo doll of Jack washes ashore. She picks it up and smiles evilly. See more »
Firstly, this review does not contain any spoilers whatsoever so read on. I had the privilege to watch this in the El Capitan theater advanced screening. Johnny Depp, the goofy pirate that we have grown to love, returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise.
The plot is when Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he's not sure if it's love—or if she's a ruthless con artist who's using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
By being a fan this franchise, I can happily confirm that YES, it is as good as the first one! Be ready for an adventure and half! Brings everything from the classic bizarre comedy to the nail biting action scenes.
The marketing for the movie have been intelligently subliminal like some other great film releases, like Avatar, or Blair Witch (the real vs fake) and the recent awesome film production The Artifice (the-artifice.com) and so on.
This is not a film to miss, does not matter if you are a die hard fan of Pirates, or new to the series! I might be in trouble for writing a review of the movie this early, so please click Yes on the "is this review useful" as a thank you ;)
