Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review

Pirates Of The Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates Of The Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales

If that and Depp's old Sparrow tricks are enough to keep you entertained for two hours, then Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales may be your cup of grog.

Are there bad men in the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie?

Visually, Dead Men Tell No Tales \/em is, as stated, a worthy Disney blockbuster movie product - especially when it comes to the visual effects for Javier Bardem\u0027s Captain Salazar and his ghostly crew, who all look spectacular in 3D. In some ways, it's been a series of diminishing returns, and they're not done yet. With a flawless blend of returning characters and new faces, the film stays intriguing within familiar territory.

Some members of the audience may find it all entertaining, drawing on distant memories of the first (and still the best) movie in the series, 2003's Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, to get them through. And yet, the scenario of this last opus could have been quite different.

On review website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 38% based on 26 reviews, and an average rating of 4.9/10. Because I approached this with passion equal to the filmmakers, the actors, and everyone else involved, I can say this about my score for "Dead Men Tell No Tales": "I meant every note".

Directed by Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (the Norwegian duo who helmed the inspirational Kon-Tiki), the fifth entry in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise stars Depp, Javier Bardem, Kevin R. McNally, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites, Golshifteh Farahani, David Wenham, Stephen Graham and Geoffrey Rush. There are several breathtaking and imaginative sequences that we've never seen before-as far as I can tell. But you probably won't remember a thing about it as soon as it's finished. Of all the types of characters that Bardem has played in his career I think the sinister, villainous types are definitely his best.

For Bloom, the lasting appeal is simpler.

There's really only one Pirate of the Caribbean, and that's Jack Sparrow, the louche swashbuckler played by Johnny Depp.

The fifth chapter has its pleasures but it's not all plain sailing.

As stories go, Salazar's Revenge is certainly not the silliest or the weakest in the franchise, there's also no doubt that the directing team managed to recapture some of Verbinki's more fun and frivolous aspects of the story to their advantage.

Deep, too, following a string of flops and missteps, including "The Lone Ranger" and the universally derided "Mortdecai", has been scrutinized for recent messy personal issues, including his divorce from actress Amber Heard.

And the great casting continues with the gorgeous and talented Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner). "It's just a shame that it has to be dragged out into the public".

Everyone involved was impressed with McCartney's commitment to the role, with Bruckheimer calling him a "gentleman" and praising his professionalism revealing that the Beatle even improvised some of his own lines. "He's a fabulous guy and a great artist".
