Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds blowing strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis escape from the Devil's Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea including him. His only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
Action Adventure Comedy - This is the fifth installment of the popular fantasy adventure
series. As in the previous four films, Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush
star, but original co-stars Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley also
appear after being absent in the fourth, albeit briefly. Language is
at a minimum, as is bloodshed, but there are a lot of creepy visual
effects and scary images that would be intense and disturbing for
Johnny Depp ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS, BLACK MASS Orlando Bloom THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG Javier Bardem THE GUNMAN, THE COUNSELOR, TO THE WONDER, SKYFALL Director: Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg KON-TIKI
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average It's fast paced but goes nowhere new and the film's "bigness” makes it hard to remember what an amazingly unexpected treasure The Curse of the Black Pearl was. Call this an adequate but ultimately forgettable summer movie and move on to the next one…
Roger EbertFull Review Average Much of the two-hour-plus running time is eaten up by elaborate stunt-filled centerpieces. ...Depp's tipsy high-jinks at half-mast in the funny department these days... The most ridiculous though satisfying sequence involves Sparrow's entrance that could double as a metaphor for the entire movie.
USA TodayFull Review Good ...Disney's buccaneer-filled franchise rights the ship with fifth installment Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales... ...has its rocky moments but also offers an engaging tale with family legacies, above-average swashbuckling and a fantastic new villain courtesy of Javier Bardem.
Slant MagazineFull Review Very Poor ...wholly lacks the lighthearted spark and demented creativity that made Gore Verbinski's original three films so much fun. ...the Pirates of the Caribbean series is cursed to unnatural life, the sort that extends soullessly beyond the point of death.
