Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) has found himself in trouble again and must team up with Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) and Carina Smith (Kaya Scodelario), an astrologist and horologist who, due to her intelligence, is deemed to be a witch.
What makes this movie good is it went back to the roots of the series and concentrates on the characters 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 personal stakes for the characters involved. The result is a more heartfelt adventure that you actually care about.
The CGI is the most mesmerizing piece of treasure throughout the film. The special effects and CGI combined are astoundingly lifelike. The movements of the ghost pirates and sharks are hyper-realistic. It features gorgeous cinematography, magnificent colors and overall is visually stunning.
Dead Men Tell No Tales is a fun ride but utterly predictable at times. It brings what you expect from a Pirates film; elegant and witty dialog, compelling sea battles, and good ole Jack Sparrow. This is Pirates of the Caribbean is for a new generation. Old characters interacting with new ones on a fun-filled adventure. Ignore the critics and enjoy the film as it is truly entertaining.
This movie is awesome. Edge of your seat excitement, literally. The computer animation was perfect, best I've ever seen. I'll bet the programers had fun with this one. It looked totally real.
Its a complex movie that at first, you don't really know what is going on, but after about 10 or 15 minutes, you get it. When its over, you will be exhausted.
I only rented it (snap; should have bought it). I am going in for seconds before my 48 hour rental is up.
Five stars plus is my rating.
It's not quite as funny or easily charming as the original, but your feel more engaged in the storyline, and you get to discover what happened with Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, as the film focuses around Turner and Swann's son, Henry Turner. It's also more likeable than the heavy and dark At World's End. The new characters help breathe some new life into the franchise, and leave enough fodder to suggest there may be a 6th movie waiting to happen.
In the long, painful succession of sequeldom that has become this saga -- the final installment (we can mercifully hope) neatly wrapped-up all the loose ends from prior films in a two-hour travesty that should have gone straight to Disney DVD.
Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush and Orlando Bloom reunite welcoming newcomers to the ensemble cast -- who should have probably steered clear of their supporting and terribly forgettable roles. I can only assume Javier Bardem was pressed for money with a Disney dagger held to his throat when he agreed to jump on board. Alright, I'm done with the maritime puns.
The story never gains a flavorful pace as Hans Zimmer attempts to ratchet up the intensity with his tried-and-true score to save the film -- on multiple occasions. When the action does build, it's slow and painful making the plot lines painfully obvious to even the most casual of moviegoers.
There are periods in this film in which one could get up from the couch, go and make dinner and come back without having missed any real substantive story-building. One can only assume that all the more familiar and exciting stories of sea lore and legend have already been brought to the silver screen in prior iterations, or perhaps the writing crew decided to skip this installment -- allowing the monkey and his cousins to cobble together a story from random cards.
As for the actors...
Depp (who spent twenty minutes at the beginning trying to decide if he was Jack Sparrow or the Mad Hatter) seemed to sputter apathetically going through the motions as Jack Sparrow and then hoping the director would pan away from him while he tucked at a bit more rum. This alongside relatively flat performances for some heavy-hitting A-listers like Rush and Bardem really flat-lined the tempo. Even Bloom who I held in high regards for Kingdom of Heaven felt long in the tooth. I didn't want to actually believe it was him at the beginning. That is was some other actor subbing in. It felt like his portrayal of a seemingly younger Legolas in the Hobbit films -- wait, you're him, but you're not really him... maybe his older brother?
Bottom line: If you're looking for closure to the Pirates' saga, this film will bring some method to the madness of the films' shared history and it might even picque your interest in brief interludes, but otherwise -- skip this one.
