The script is poor, and too many backstories and subplots make the film hard to keep track of. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was meant to be the final instalment in the series, but reports suggest that there will be more films to come. If the deteriorating quality of the films is anything to go by, abandon ship, or abandon hope.(read full review)

Pirates of the Caribben: Salazar’s Revenge, a film that feels twice as long as it really is, and roughly five times as boring. It’s the sort of film that, when confronted with the challenge to be creative, chooses to have its characters topple over for laughs instead. In the end, it drowns in a typhoon of CGI action, which, as far as death by drowning goes, is perhaps the most painful way for this series to have floated away. But there you have it.(read full review)

Dead Men Tell No Tales may not be the “final adventure” after all, as trailers once promised. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales remains true to its Disney theme park roots. Loud, overstimulating and hard to take in all in one sitting, it feels like the vacation that you’ll need a vacation from.(read full review)

The plot twists are too bizarre and yet not too unbelievable. The movie thrives on star-power, cameos and special effects. But the visual treat of a climax will pull the wool over your eyes, and you will buy into the fantasy. Go on this final voyage. The seas might get a bit rough but the pirates won’t rob you off a good time.(read full review)

It’s also not very clear whom the audience was made for – because there are contrived attempts to invoke memories of the first three films, a clear servicing for long time fans, but the formulaic storytelling also serves as a soft reboot, a clear bait for teenagers new to the franchise. If you’re a die-hard fan of the franchise and you’re looking for more of the same, you should watch the film – but for others who are interested in something new and unseen should expect to be disappointed.(read full review)

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge’ (also known as ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’) is an amalgamation of the franchise’s once hit formula- hunt down the nemesis and resurrect the Black Pearl (a ship whose ownership is the battleground between Captain Barbossa and Sparrow), done in an insipid fashion, with uncoordinated chases adding to the woe.(read full review)

Storywise, the film had no novelty factor, with multiple sub-plots that tend to get confusing after a point. The pace was so slow at times, that even at an odd 129 minutes of its runtime, it might exhaust you. Overall Jack Sparrow for the first time – disappointed.(read full review)

Paul Cameron’s cinematography is top notch submerging the viewers into the seas and at every time he hits the shores he makes us feel the relief too. Roger Barton has provided clean cuts and thankfully we do get to know who is who in the free for all battles at sea. Overall Go for it with family for a fun outing with emotional moments that top the visual effects.(read full review)
