About the Movie
Thrust into an adventure, a down-on-his luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill fortune blowing even more strongly when a crew of deadly ghost pirates led by an old rival, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea...including him. His only hope of survival lies in finding the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that gives its possessor total control of the seas.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Its pleasures are so meager, its delight in its own inventions so forced and false, that it becomes almost the perfect opposite of entertainment.
Rotten: Is this really only the fifth entry in the Pirates film franchise? It feels like the 50th. Except for Javier Bardem, who brings a dollop of fresh mischief to this paycheck party, Dead Men has all the flavor of rotting leftovers.
Rotten: There are no new treasures to be found in this installment, which is dragged down by the anchor of a prescribed franchise blueprint.
Rotten: I daresay it is the very best fourth sequel ever made to a movie based on a 50-year-old theme park ride.
Dead Men Do Tell Tales
I thought this film was phenomenal. I'm not going to give away any spoilers, being some may not have watched it. This movie was action packed throughout. If you liked the first film, this film is very, very similar. We get a whole different perspective of pirates in this film. Jeff Nathanson did a fantastic job with the story. Johnny Depp's portrayal of Captain Jack was fantastic. I'm a fanatic of these films. I've been watching them all my life. This one, to me, may just be the best one yet. Well done, Disney!
Critics are Wrong
I thought this was great wrap up to the series. It brought some pieces full circle. Though I wish they had made the younger Jack Sparrow much more realistic. Don't leave once the credits start, there's a scene at the end!
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Fans of the originals will recognize enough connections tissue to make mindful of the first trilogy, and average viewers will find more than enough to enjoy & make them glad they bought a ticket. The most important lesson from the new Pirates Of The Caribbean? Ghost sharks should have been added a long time ago.
