Consensus: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales proves that neither a change in directors nor an undead Javier Bardem is enough to drain this sinking franchise's murky bilge.

Christopher Orr
The Atlantic

The subtitle of the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie is "Dead Men Tell No Tales." The moral of the movie, alas, is that the same cannot be said of dead franchises.

Rolling Stone

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.

Plenty of viewers of all ages will gobble it up and holler for more, but only fans of spectacle with no need of story, character development or wit won't feel that they've been robbed.

If being dull, gruesome and obnoxiously loud weren't enough, Dead Men Tell No Tales makes sure to get in a blast of sexism, too.

Christian Science Monitor

Directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg work up a stormy sea-parting finale that is better than anything in The Ten Commandments. Again, the trick to enjoying this film is to expect nothing.

Oh, if only dead men told no tales. Then we might have avoided this fifth Pirates of the Caribbean adventure, which fails to justify its own existence in any way whatsoever.

San Diego Reader

The bounty of bawdy bits feel borrowed from Benny Hill ("No woman's ever handled my Herschel before!" says a stunned telescope operator), while the slapstick violence skews toward the Three Stooges.

I daresay it is the very best fourth sequel ever made to a movie based on a 50-year-old theme park ride.

There's a glint of life in this franchise yet.

Surely an improvement over PotC4, the 5th installment of the franchise tries to recreate the fun and extravagant set pieces of the original trilogy and pays… More

In my personal opinion, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was a very boring film that didn't need to see the light of day. When it was announced… More

Pirates 5 proves that this franchise should end. If the previous installment of the movie didn't prove that the franchise is dead then this installment… More

Rest assured fans, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a definite improvement over its waterlogged 2011 predecessor, but I can't help… More

Pirates of the Caribbean is another one of those franchises that just doesn't know when it should stop. So, as expected, we have a fifth installment in the… More
