Trivia

The name of the fifth installment, "Dead Men Tell No Tales," was previously mentioned by Cotton's parrot in the first movie, The Curse of the Black Pearl, and during a transition scene in the third movie, At World's End. It is also heard at the beginning of the Pirates of the Caribbean rides at the Disney Parks. See more »

Goofs

Carina says she is named after "the brightest star of the North". This is wrong for several reasons. First, Carina is not a star, but a constellation. Secondly, it is a southern constellation, in fact it can't even be seen in most of the Northern hemisphere. Finally, the movie takes place in 1755, and Carina wasn't named until 1763, having been an integral part of the larger Argo Navis constellation. See more »

Seriously... Another One?
27 May 2017 | by 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...
