Johnny Depp (along with other "Pirates" favorites) returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” a rip-roaring adventure that finds a down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Capt. Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle. Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.

"The pacing is spot-on, the set-pieces memorable and all the characters are allowed to shine, without it ever becoming The Johnny Depp Show." - Total Film

"'Dead Men' works well enough as a stand-alone, swashbuckling comedic spectacle, thanks to the terrific performances, some ingenious practical effects, impressive CGI and a steady diet of PG-13 dialogue peppered with not particularly sophisticated but (I have to admit) fairly funny sexual innuendo." - Chicago Sun-Times

"Offers an engaging tale with family legacies, above-average swashbuckling and a fantastic new villain courtesy of Javier Bardem." - USA Today

"The fifth entry is the most divertingly enjoyable since the first. A professionally crafted brew of action, slapstick and supernatural mumbo-jumbo." - The Wrap

"'Kon-Tiki' directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are at the helm this time around, proving capable captains." - Indiewire
