2nd best Pirates movie following Curse of the Black Pearl. Bardem is great, Depp is Depp, but Rush is the ideal pirate and carries the film.
Stay for the bonus scene at the end! Loved this movie!
This movie is truly unhinged — not crazed, which might be interesting, but devoid of the usual hinges that connect one sequence with another.
Screenwriter Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can), taking over from series regulars Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, doesn’t make much sense out of the typically (for the franchise) convoluted plot, but does manage to bring out a father-child theme that lends the film a little emotional resonance.
Scodelario, of the Maze Runner films and Andrea Arnold's Wuthering Heights, is just about the only member of the cast who seems to believe she's expected to be more than a thin generic functionary or flamboyant scene-stealer.
