Why it's great[]

  • The humor is clever and funny
  • The cast did a great performance, especially Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem.
  • Jack and Henry have good chemistry, which reminds of Jack and Will in the first three movies.
  • Jack Sparrow being depressed and drunk is both funny and heartbreaking.
  • Henry Turner is a good character.
  • Great soundtrack by Geoff Zanelli, a student of Hans Zimmer.
  • Carina Smyth is a great character and a strong female protagonist, with Kaya Scodelario playing her perfectly.
  • Salazar, despite being unsympathetic, is a good villain and Javier Bardem did a great job playing him.
  • The action scenes are incredible
  • The scene where the Black Pearl comes back is memorable and emotional.
  • The special effects are outstanding
  • The ending is heartwarming.
  • It brings the franchise to the style of the first three movies.

Bad Qualities[]

  • Barbossa can be annoying at times before he reedems himself especially when he threatens to cut Jack's tongue.
