Expectations is everything with these movies. While the previousPirates of the Caribbean (PotC) movie feels more like a spin-off than adirect sequel to the original trilogy, "Dead Men Tell NoTales/Salazar's Revenge" continues the lore of the first 3 movies.While continuity errors are somewhat blatant, you can't say this movieis the worst of the 5 PotC movies. The actions are more grounded thanthe previous movies, and they managed to salvage themselves after theless-than-mediocre "On Stranger Tides". The humor's there, and justenough. The amount of screen time of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightleyprobably means that there'll be more of these movies in the future.There's also a familiar feels to the first movie in this one. Perhapsthis familiarity is what makes critics hate it. But seriously, if youdespised "On Stranger Tides", this one you'll probably like. I'd saythis is the best PotC movie since the first one back in early 2000's.
Oh, and Javier Bardem, as always, is menacing as the latest baddie"Capitan Salazar".

I loved it! Yes, it is made for the family audiences but it really keptme going for two hours! It is an action filled adventure on the highseas from the times when Britannia ruled the waves. It has it all!Action, pirates, sailors, ghosts and what not, but it really isentertaining! You have no other option but to take your kids to thisone, you will not be sorry.
I especially liked Mr. Bardem as Captain Salazar, his acting is alittle bit better then the rest but every actor gave hundred percentfor this film and it shows!
Since this is my review 400 for IMDb.com I have to take an opportunityto thank staff at the Multiplex Cinema City Sarajevo for beinggenerally kind and professional. Not to forget Meeting Point Cinema aswell. I also want to thank IMDb.com staff for letting MOST of myreviews pass.

Finally a Pirates of the Caribbean movie that I felt quite at par withthe original one. I felt in this movie, the elements of entertainmentwere quite abundant. Unlike in the 4th installment, I think this one isfunnier, more thrilling and gave the sense of happiness at the end.This time,, the movie was not solely telling the story of Jack Sparrow.Instead the other characters, especially Henry and Carina were givenquite a lot screen time. It was nice to see Jack Sparrow's charm andwit plus his insistence of helping other people.
This movie provided some background story of Jack while he was young,which was very interesting to see. The movie was filled with lots offun and laughter but also few brief touching moments. The story wasgood and there were some surprises too. As a high budget movie, themovie was filled with very good special effects (some done by theIndustrial Light Magic). I totally loved the effects of the deads(Salazar's crews), his ship and of course the very cool special effectsat the end.
I also felt that the movie did not have any dull moment. From beginningtill the end, there were always something interesting to see. My wifeand I were entertained throughout the whole movie which was having aduration of a little over 2 hours. Amazingly, due to the sense ofexcitement, my wife was able to hold going to the bathroom tillfinished. I guess she forgotten about it while watching.
Actually, even though I looked forward to see this movie, I was a bitskeptical at first about whether this one would be good enough. I feltthat the 4th one was a little bit dull, and also a bit forced. Thestory for that one did not feel strong enough and certainly did notgive a lot of impression. But this one really felt it was worthy ofgiving another sequel after this. Especially if you wait till the veryend, after the end-credit scene, where we were given somethinginteresting to ponder. Might be the potential story for the sequel?Perhaps if this one is successful enough.
I believe this one really worth to see. I am happy to see Johnny Deppin this movie which I hope would be a commercial success for him. Sincehis past few movies were unfortunately not really successful ones.Maybe people grew tired of his acting as unusual characters. So if youare looking for something fun, light, interesting movie with funnycharming pirate and treasure hunt story, you should definitely watchthis one. I am confident you would be entertained like my wife and Iwere.

Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
