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 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.

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.

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.

It's a perfectly fine, entertaining enough adventure back into the treacherous and fantastical waters.

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.

Go on this final voyage. The seas might get a bit rough but the pirates won't rob you off a good time.

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
