Rotten tomatoes is rotten
★★★★★
To be honest this was the best movie in the series of movies. Sure maybe the plot was a little all over the place, but it kept you on your toes. You waited, excitedly to see what happened next. Its ridiculous how negative the rotten tomatoes reviews were this was a great movie therefore deserving better ratings. — LDGAm

FUN!!!!!!!!

I may never trust any movie critics reviews ever again! This movie was Fantastically Farcical, Far-Fetched and most importantly FUN!!!! Geez, It's Pirates, not Shakespeare! Nice little surprise cameos put this movie over the top (Sir Paul, to mention one, made me laugh)...and a post credit scene that ties all the movies together and leaves it open for another; though I think this franchise has wrapped up with this movie...you never know! Oh...and ghost sharks...c'mon...how is that not FUN!?!?! I truly believe people have forgotten how to just enjoy a movie, especially when it's part of a blockbuster franchise like this one. — Echo7

Surprising

Was blown out of the water on this one. Thought the series was done and out of ideas, but no! Fantastic fun — That one Bloke1066

It's good, don't trust Rotten Tomatoes

Don’t listen to the critics
★★★★★
I saw this movie in theaters, and it is much better than the previous movie. Comedy is better, interesting backstory on jack, and overall just a good movie. Hyped for the next installment. — SJSJSJSJSJS1

Turns Out Dead Men DO In Fact Tell Tales
★★★★★
Simply put, I've ALWAYS loved the Pirates series, and I was really excited when they announced this one and upon seeing it, I had a blast as always, it's chock full of great action and belly laughs as per usual, and there's ZOMBIE SHARKS this time around, I geeked out when they showed up. Johnny Depp is fantastic and hysterical as the iconic jack sparrow and Javier bardem is great as the villain, his presence always leaves an impact during his portrayals of various bad guys. anyway, I think it's tied with on stranger tides as my favorite pirates entry. — poopsy duffus

The Critics are Wrong!!
★★★★★
"Pirates of the Caribbean" has always been one of my favorite movies/franchises. Despite the critics' negative reviews, I loved it!! It was exciting to see some of the original characters make a return and I loved how they tied the new characters to the old. It really brought the entire series together. In addition to our beloved favorites, the new characters are fun and bring some freshness to the series. Henry is a dashing young hero much like Will, and Carina is an intelligent young heroine much like Elizabeth. Captain Salazar makes for a deliciously evil villain. If this really is the last installment, it was an amazing end to an amazing series. But if there are more "Pirates" to come, there is plenty of new material and characters to work with!! I would love to see a 6th!! — Little Miss Bri

Another great swashbuckling adventure!
★★★★★
Certainly an improvement over the last film! Critics got this one wrong, it's a blast to watch! — ReverseWings

Walk the plank
★★★★★
So first off very nice graphics with the sharks could not have looked better, very fresh. However the plot and movie...... what happened to jack sparrow. I don't feel like it's the same old silly jack in the last 3 movies and by 3 I mean, He was already starting to go down hill on the 4th one stranger tides. So either they are not paying him enough or he does not know how to be Jack anymore Johnny deep has to fix his act. So with that said let's talk about the plot boring, mostly talking, bland jokes, about maybe 4 action scenes that ain't all that great. I mean what ever happened to the pirates franchisee. So if Disney plans on making a 6th which I'm all for because like I said the first 3 were great get a new plot and fix Johnny's character. — topdog critic

Loved it!
★★★★★
I do not want to give any spoilers away, so I will just say that I thought the film was excellent! I rarely agree with the critics as I think they have lost the ability to just watch a movie and make a decision about it. I loved the film and hope this isn’t the last one! — nbvideo

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales
★★★★★
What a perfect movie to end the series with!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it!!! The writers did a fabulous job! Not only did they tie in the main characters, but also introduced new ones. I don't want to give anything away to those who have not seen it, but to those who have seen all the others, this IS a MUST SEE!!! I know I will get it for my library and watch it several more times!!! To get the full effect of this movie, and to see it at it's best, see it in a theater. At the very least on a hi def large TV to get the full effects. The only thing I will warn about is that the music is loud, but it does not over power the dialogue. There is one surprise that I have to go back and rewatch it for, but I am not going to spoil it for others by telling what it is. — Lindakmc2003

Awesome family movie
★★★★★
Watch this movie with family and we all had fun. About Pirates, myths, legends and stars. Gets the imagination going. — fmaylia

BEST MOVIE EVER
★★★★★
The movie really clears up all plot holes. It’s full of adventures and lots of humor it really is hilarious! Definitely my favorite movie — Pinnersm

Not great, not terrible
★★★★★
I was entertained, but thats all I went in expecting. Nothing magical, nothing special. I think the Rotten Tomatoes rating is a little low. — Rambo8649

The Critics are WRONG (Again!)
★★★★★
Why is it the movie critics (especially on Rotten Tomatoes), almost always gets it wrong? Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Men Tell No Tales is another example! What a great movie! Family friendly and it fun to watch! It did a great job of tying up all the loose ends and and at the same time providing a solid story line with action, adventure and some great stunts. Don’t listen to the critics! This is a must have movie for your Pirates of the Caribbean collection and you (like us) will no doubt watch it again and again! — Ronin64

It had its moments.
★★★★★
You could edit a pretty good 90 minute movie out of the 2+ hour film. — Tsinder

Way better than critics say
★★★★
This movie is a blast - and believe me I am brutally honest. The opening was outstanding and the casting was spot on. I loved the continuance of the story and a lot of great, funny moments with awesome action. A great time to watch. — Charley9338

The best
★★★★★
This is and of the best movies that I have ever seen — Coin Vader

Dead men can’t make a movie
★★★★
This series is has gotten worse with each adaptation. Dead men tell no tales is the fifth and hopefully the last pirates movie, and is easily the worst in the whole series. Captain jack used to be this feared and witty pirate, but now he is just this dumb drunk who does things on accident. This movie had a ton of plot wholes and does not bring the piratey adventures the other movies brought. It was good to see will turner again tho for the 2 minutes he was on screen for. — Awesomemqn

Best Movie Ever
★★★★★
I saw the movie. I’m not going to spoil it if you haven’t seen it but it was amazing. It was my first one I have seen. I jumped 2 times. Not because I was scared. Just because it shocked me. — Horse 🐴 lover

best movie ever
★★★★★
this movie is beyond amazing! 5 star!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! — JoelsSpacePrincesess

Not the best in the series but still fantastic!
★★★★★
I loved this movie, it was great seeing Will and Elizabeth again and their son! The only complaints I have are the plot holes, most of which can be easily explained. And Captain Jack being a complete idiot in this movie, but that is only for the first half, by the end he is the same old Jack we know and love. For anybody that's confused as to why jack acts like this it is because he has become a land pirate, making him miserable and down on his luck, causing him to be more drunk than usual. — Aragorn120

Super great

What a let-down.
★★★★★
Sorry folks. I loved all the previous installments of Pirates. This one just missed. I can't say exactly why, but it never really got it's hook into me the way the others did. Johnny Depp's physical acting was as good as ever, but the writers didn't deliver with his lines, and even he couldn't improv his way around them. It feels like he tried, but even he realized in the end, it was just going to be a paycheck. Captain Salazar just didn't have the presence of zombie Barbosa or Davey Jones. And the new kids failed spectacularly at taking the place of Bloom and Knightley as the straight-men to the assorted pirate kookiness. — Burphel

Time to abandon ship?
★★★★★
Ever since the second film in the POTC series, Dead Man's Chest, was released, this franchise has gone downhill rapidly in terms of storytelling and filmic quality. This latest installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (even the title of the film itself is overlong and bloated) only serves to prove that point. It is virtually indistinguishable from its predecessors; it has the same convoluted storyline, overlong running time, bland characters, crude humor/innuendos, and slapstick action that have become hallmarks of this series. Being a casual moviegoer who is rather swift to critique and point out the flaws in a movie, I found many of these attributes detracting from the overall quality and entertainment value of the film, though I suppose long-time fans of this series have come to accept these attributes, or perhaps even commend them. The only things I genuinely liked about this film were the solid visual effects (the greenscreen was occasionally quite noticable, but overall, the VFX hold up well) and the main villain, the undead Captain Salazar, played by the great Javier Bardem, who I thought was a very menacing and compelling character. Alas, those two standout highlights of the movie aren't enough to redeem this newest chapter in a long-sinking series. Perhaps it is time to let this decomposing franchise finally sink to the bottom of the filmmaking industry and tell no more tales. — realjohnlong

Wow!!!!!!

The end of this movie had me crying for all the right reasons. I love that Keira and Orlando came back...and the video after the credits shows us that Davy Jones is back. Number one movie!!! — Moviegal

Greatest movie
★★★★★
I love the pirates series. The only thing I didn’t like was that there was literally no sword fighting, unlike the first movie. Add more of that for the next film. — Jorge BeatRocker

Fantastic!
★★★★★
I don't know anything about the tomato meter. And I'm not sure who's opinions they've asked for to determine the score...but holy hell they're misguided! This film is exceptional! Nothing in my eyes can recapture the magic of Curse of the Black Pearl, but Dead Men Tell No Tales is a very close runner up. Definitely the second best in the series! — LordPlagouss88

A truly amazing movie!!!

I love these films and I love pirates. Keep them coming! Though I will admit Depp was off in this movie. He didn't have to same sly swagger that he usually has. Hopefully the next one he'll put a better performance on. — Mizzou2

Beautiful addition to the series. If only Jack acted a little more like himself, the character was a bit off. — Ashley Kay Lanford
