Of course Pirates is a great concept, with exact the right music. But in this version 'Salazar's revenge' there is a lack of content, despite a lot of very nice special effects. (I liked the safe-deposit-part very much!) It is a pity, because there are such a great stories in Caribbean history. The Amsterdam archives have enough to discover and uncover. Of course, the makers have their own excuse 'dead men tell no tales'. So how could we blame them?

Please for the love of god stop now. How is it possible for these tocontinue to get worse, and even more pertinently, why do I continue tosee them. For the first time in a very long while I considered walkingout of a film, and that was after about 15 minutes. I was bored stupid.They try to continually up the action set pieces in this franchise butjust manage to make them more stupid, bombastic and confusing withmuddied visuals, terrible pacing and stupidity from the characters. Andsome director really needs to get hold of Johnny Depp and get him toactually act and not merely caricature his original creation of thefirst pirates just upping the ticks and foibles. And as for the actingof the rest of the cast, Jesus. Even good actors seem to feel the needto Depp it up in this series, and the two new leads were so wooden theydidn't need ships to cross the seas. Add to all that a god awful scriptfull of pathetic dialogue and character motivation with a pee poorstory arc and this turd may finally sink the franchise. Here's hoping.
The fifth installment of the Pirates-series is by all means a step upfrom the fourth. In all film-series, when a sequel is released it'smandatory to compare it to the best one - which in this case arguablyeveryone agrees is the first one. That may be unfair, but it's thereality. Now.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge does give us somespectacular moments. The visual effects really is astonishing, and someof the scenes is beyond anything I have ever seen before. That'simpressing. But that's not why I like Pirates of the Caribbean. What Iexpect (hope) from a Pirates-film is elegant and witty dialog,compelling sea- battles and Jack Sparrow on fire. And this last bit Ithink is the biggest reason why this one fails to deliver.
In my opinion, Johnny Depp has lost his way as captain Jack. And Ithink that's natural, after all, it's been 13 years since he firstportrait the character. He's gotten older and that really shows. This,combined with a really poor script, regarding Jack at least, makes itall fall apart. Half the time he's completely drunk (really drunk, notjust usual Jack-tipsy) and half the time he tells bad jokes whichreally is beneath a genius character like Jack Sparrow.
The film starts on a positive note. I had good hopes that it could gosomewhere, but mid- way through the story starts to split up and itdidn't really have a good rhythm to it. In addition I think there are alot of characters that just don't do anything to the story or addshumor or dynamic.
The decision to bring back Orlando Bloom to play Will Turner isfundamentally a good one, but I'm so disappointed with he's involvementin the film. It seems Disney only took him back to promote the film andlure old fans back for more. If he's to be involved, he should have amajor role.
Javier Bardem does a good job as villain, but nothing I will rememberhim by.
All in all, I would say that I am disappointed. I didn't have hugeexpectations to begin with, but where I thought the film would deliver,it just didn't. Basically it's a film for the technical wizards to showhow much they can do in terms of visual effects , and they can do alot. It's just not what I want.
