Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Reviews
- Definitely the best one since the first part..by 16 May 2017on

Like many of you, I was a huge fan of the first Pirates of the Caribbean film. Johnny Depp was brilliant and Gore Verbinski's swashbuckling tale was both a good homage to the classic Disneyland ride while also being just a kick-ass film. While the first two sequels are held in low esteem by most filmgoers, I think they are better than many people remember. Sure, they have convoluted plots, but the action set pieces are fun, and I still enjoy the characters and world-building. However, the fourth Pirates movie, which was more of a spin-off focusing on Captain Jack Sparrow rather than a proper continuation, was not good by anyone's estimation. With that out of the way, here's my spoiler free reaction to the fifth movie. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a pleasant surprise. Even though none of us were asking for another Pirates movie, I think most fans of the franchise will be happy we got this one.
What makes this new Pirates movie good is that they went back to the roots of the series and concentrate on the characters we love and their legacies. The main villain's story is intimately tied to Captain Jack Sparrow's past and the central MacGuffin that everyone is chasing has very personal stakes for the characters involved. The result is a more heartfelt adventure that you actually care about.
I can't say yet where I'd rank it in the series, but it's a much better film than the last installment and has many improvements over the first two sequels in the original trilogy. If I have one complaint, it is that I miss Gore Verbinski's over-the-top action sequences. Don't get me wrong, the action from newcomers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg is solid, but it's different than the original trilogy. This one has a fun, elaborate opening set piece, but it never quite manages to top it.
Dead Men Tell No Tales doesn't worry about building a trilogy of films (there is no cliffhanger) and takes the time to tell its own story on its own terms. The story is easy to follow (which is saying something for this series), the action isn't confusing, and the situations are often fun and funny. You can't say any of that about the previous sequel. Series newcomer Kaya Scodelario is a stand-out, and Javier Bardem does a fine job as the film's villain.
- A welcome throwback to the first installmentby 23 May 2017on

Sparrow returns to the silver screen to give the audience what they've been clamoring for since The Curse of the Black Pearl. And what separates this from the others is the villain. Yes, Javier Bardem's Salazar might be the best villain we've seen since Davy Jones. Which comes as a welcome surprise. Although, I was one of the few people that enjoyed the previous installments. I do agree that they lacked a serious villain. However the trailers do not do Captian Salazar justice as he's a force to be reckoned with. Our heroin Jack is met with Henry Turner and Elizabeth Swann who have different agendas. But all of them are after the legendary Trident of Poseidon. rumor has it, he who controls the Trident reins the seven seas. The chemistry between Henry and Carina somewhat reminded me of what Will and Elizabeth used to be, it was a nice touch of nostalgia. If there is a future for this franchise(likely) I would hope they bring back some of the characters. In particular Swann, a strong female protagonist is always a welcome sight.

Pirates of the Caribbean Salazars Revenge is a Great Instalment to the Series.I Loved This Movie especially The Villain he had a lot of depth and the movie holds up really well I enjoyed all two hours thirty minutes. Also its better than 4 and you might be wondering what about 2 and 3 but I really enjoyed them and Johnny Depp did amazing as Jack Sparrow and I have to say the same about Javier Bardem all around I loved this movie if you haven't seen it you should.
- Astounding ride to kick off the summer movie seasonby 16 May 2017on

So far since the beginning of May, we haven't had a movie that really drives the summer movie season into full gear. Dead Men Tell No Tales is the awakening. I'm not that big of a fan of the pirates films. I watched the first one but haven't seen any of the other ones. For a summer blockbuster, Pirates 5 has its cheesy moments and a lot of the dialogue is a little queasy here and there. But I thoroughly enjoyed and was in awe of the visual imagery and physique of this epic ride of a lifetime. Even with the exception of Hans Zimmer not orchestrating the musical themes of this picture, the music resonates just as well. But I truly feel the 5th pirates of the caribbean movie embraced it's purpose as a summer blockbuster.
There are some strange/weird fantastical moments along the way. However the movie hits a high stride at the beginning and towards the end. The action is enthralling and the adventure is swashbuckling. It is never a dull moment. I feel the filmmakers were exploring some very intriguing elements surrounding each of the characters. There are some delicate and shocking surprises along the way.
All in all, i think this is much better than the 1st pirates movie. I have to go back and watch the other sequels now because I feel like I definitely missed out. There are qualities to this movie that we rarely see in movies of this scale anymore, and that is an explorative nature where the story and characters are being shown in a new light and being taken to new places. It's a fearless awe-inspiring epic. Very good movie that I will go back and see a few times more.

Before i start this review i would like to point out that i'm a huge fan of the pirates franchise. I feel like the 2nd and 3rd sequels are fantastic and i don't know why people hate them so much, I understand why you'd hate the 4th one...as personally i don't like it either, now lets talk about the 5th one....semi-disappointed.
I'll begin with Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar, who by the way is a great actor. He is a little all over the place for me. I feel like Javier came in read the script and knew he had to be over the top in his role, which would work for a character, like Davy Jones, but his lines are choppy and his cgi is not the best in some scenes, in a very visual way as well you'll notice it pretty much the whole movie.
The new-comers Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites are all right *spoiler in case you didn't know* it turns out Henry is Will turners son and its an interesting reveal i saw coming, and of course Karina is supposed to be the Elizabeth to his Will but that was to be expected. Sadly enough as well we saw like no Will Turner, I was really looking forward to it as well, and I will mention this even though its to be expected, Johnny Depp is a stand out and is Fantastic as Jack Sparrow. So in conclusion..It's all right.
I would say if you're a fan of all 4 you're going to love it so go ahead and see it this Friday. But if you have been expecting some epic return to the franchise this is not your movie. As where Force Awakens takes too much from the original star wars, so does Dead Men Tell No Tales, but in a disappointing way. Listen if you're a huge Pirates fan like I am you're either going to think its mixed or love it so either way its not as bad as the 4th. With a bunch of sloppy fight sequences, some choppy editing, sometimes very visually bad cgi I am going to give Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales 6 out of 10 stars, just because I felt Johnny Depp did a great job and there is enjoyment in this movie just like all the other pirates, except 4, If you did not like any of the sequels you will not like this one either. Thank you for listening

I noticed a comment in the trivia section for the movie "Filming was started without a finished script." I think that about says it all for me. If you put 5 monkeys in front of 10 typewriters for 10 years, the script for this movie would be what you would get from their efforts. What a crappy, noisy, confusing bunch of overdone special effects. I only went to see it because my husband wanted to. And for the record, I LOVED the first movie! Why do they always have to make sequels? Hmmm...oh I forgot, to make more MONEY!!! Not only is the plot confusing, but the whole movie is visually repulsive. Everything and everyone is slimy, sweaty, dirty, and have rotten teeth (except of course for the lovely two leads, who have to be pretty and dirty at the same time.) I was exhausted and drained at the end of the movie. A quote from Shakespeare comes to mind "Sound and fury, signifying nothing" Please, don't make a seventh movie Hollywood, I can't take any more.
