The movie Pirates of Carribean is very popular around the world, the latest series presents the audience the beautiful creature of mermaid. In people’s eyes, the image of mermaid presents beauty and kindness, because we have read the story Little Mermaid. The heroine sacrifices herself to save her love. But in modern movie, mermaid presents the evil thing, who will sing a song to seduce people and then eat them. It is so differen from what we have learned from the fairy tales. The meaning of this word is the monster in the water, so mermaid actually is not something beautiful but evil. It is indeed has the attractive appearance while with bad heart. 

电影《加勒比海盗》在世界各地都很受欢迎,最新的系列给观众呈现了美人鱼这种美丽的生物。在人们的眼中,美人鱼的形象展示了美丽和善良,因为我们读过小美人鱼的故事。女主人公牺牲自己拯救她的爱人。但在现代电影中,美人鱼代表着邪恶的事,她会唱一首歌勾引人,然后吃掉人。这与我们所学到的童话故事如此与众不同。这个词的意思是在水中怪物,所以美人鱼实际上不是美丽而是邪恶的东西。它确实有着吸引人的外表但是心肠坏。
