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.

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.

This soggy sequel sails off-course. It's a surreal shipwreck. Argh!

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.

There are no new treasures to be found in this installment, which is dragged down by the anchor of a prescribed franchise blueprint.

Marginally fun, but it's time for this protoplasmic franchise to finally give up the ghost.

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.

Globe and Mail

Now in its fifth outing and trying to press reset after an unnecessary fourth movie, Depp's campy performance in that role is losing crucial energy and humour.

Dead Men Tell No Tales is flawed, but it's still better than Marshall's film and the weirdness that overpowered and eventually ruined Verbinski's original trilogy.

In a similar way that Mad Max Fury Road, Jason Bourne, The Force Awakens, Creed, and Jurassic World, Dead Men Tell No Tales attempts to make both a sequel and a… More

If there was ever a point of time where this franchise would permanently end, Dead Men Tell No Tales should have as of right now been one of those installments… More
