Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales | Ratings & Reviews

"It's a shame when a beloved franchise coughs and splutters over the finish line. A sad desperation hangs over this final Pirates outing, no matter how hard it attempts to shake it - something like being the guy that's way too old to go clubbing, pretending all night you are actually having fun."

Flicks, Daniel RutledgeFlicks

"The franchise has lost a bit of its lustre with every successive installment, but never has a "Pirates" film felt this inessential, this depressingly pro forma."

VarietyVariety

"The pacing is spot-on, the set-pieces memorable and all the characters are allowed to shine, without it ever becoming The Johnny Depp Show."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Whatever charm and charisma Johnny Depp once had in this role is well and truly lost at sea."

Time OutTime Out

"With so many characters to juggle, the story feels less like a coherent chain of events than a bundle of obligatory subplots."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"Moves at a faster rate of knots than any Pirates film; trouble is, nothing has really been added. It’s the same soggy ride, set to a marginally preferable speed."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The shortest of the five films, but it feels like a very long slog from titles to credits."

StuffStuff

"It's hard not to get on board this swashbuckling romp - particularly with Johnny Depp in fine form."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Depp remains wholeheartedly the focus of this fifth Pirates film, and saying the character's loopy novelty has faded is like complaining that there are maggots in the below-decks gruel: You knew what you were getting when you came aboard."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"In the end, Dead Men Tell No Tales does what it says on the tin, and that's fine."

FilmInkFilmInk

"Not the return to form you might have been hoping for. Its story might cover all the same beats as the 2003 original, but there’s little of that film’s spark or spirit."
