Quotes

Carina Smyth: This ship. Those ghosts. There can be no logical explanation.
Henry: Myths of the sea are real, Carina. I'm glad you can finally see you were wrong.
Carina Smyth: Wrong? Perhaps I had some doubts.
Henry: This is the worst apology I've ever heard.
Carina Smyth: Apology? Why would I apologize?
Henry: Because we've been chased by the dead, sailing on a ship, raised from a bottle. Where is your science in that?
Carina Smyth: Fine, I will apologize.
Henry: Go on, then.
Carina Smyth: Well then, one could argue that you owe *me* an apology, as my life has been threatened by pirates ...

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