Trivia

Instead of rebuilding the Sunset from Queen Anne's Revenge to the Black Pearl, production decided only to build the deck and the rest of the ship was completed using CGI, this was done in order to save money. See more »

Goofs

The first scenes take place on the island of Saint Martin that appears to be under English rule. This is historically inaccurate for Saint Martin has been under Dutch and French rule since the mid 17th century. This movie is set in the mid 18th century. See more »

Quotes

Henry: [whispers into a jail cell] I need to speak with you.
Captain Jack Sparrow: [attacks Henry from behind, holding him against the cell door] Hand me your sword.
Henry: I don't have a sword.
Captain Jack Sparrow: What kind of soldier has no weapon?
Henry: I'm currently wanted for treason.
Captain Jack Sparrow: So not the very good kind then?
Henry: I'm looking for a pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow?
Captain Jack Sparrow: [let's go of Henry] Well today's your lucky day. Because I just happen to be Captain Jack Sparrow.

Seriously... Another One?
27 May 2017 | by (Worcester, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the dreadful predecessor that was 'On Stranger Tides', I entered the cinema with rather poor expectations... how I left with even lower enjoyment is beyond me.

Perhaps it's the fact that a theme park ride can't sustain a story for an entire film franchise? Maybe it's the fact that I've seen this story before in four other films? Perhaps the lack of character development and me not giving a damn about any of the new characters? Or maybe it's just because it's an orgy of CGI madness? Who knows? Either way, this film is a complete over-the-top mess. Watchable? Yes. Enjoyable? Hell no!

I admit that 'Dead Man's Chest' and 'At World's End' weren't "fantastic" movies, but they rounded off a rather enjoyable trilogy, especially following the ultimately brilliant first film. But the two sequels' success should not have been an excuse for a fourth and now a fifth film, with each film the reception lowers and the standards and eagerness for the next further lowers. However, Disney as the opportunistic blighters they are, take their box office success with stride and look to creating the next underwhelming, money-making sequel. This time it's in the form of 'Dead Men Tell No Tales'.

The overuse of jokes we've heard on several previous occasions, the fact that the beloved Jack Sparrow is now becoming a character we look at in contempt because he's worn out, much like the franchise. Scraping the bottom of the barrel, milking upon its previous success... both terms that can be applied suitably to this movie (if that's what I can call it). And do you know what the worst part is? This film will make its money back, it'll double, triple, quadruple its budget in box office returns, thus giving the producers a reason to create yet-another dull sequel.

All-in-all, I actually think I had an aneurysm whilst watching this film...
