Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge (12A)

Action, Adventure, Fantasy

Captain Jack Sparrow searches for the trident of Poseidon.

The critical consensus

Not the return to form you might have been hoping for. Its story might cover all the same beats as the 2003 original, but there’s little of that film’s spark or spirit.

**(*)(*)(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 22/05/2017

A rollicking romp, with everybody on top form, this is a summer blockbuster par excellence.

****(*)James Mottram, Total Film, 22/05/2017

There are a few new faces but not many new ideas in the fifth instalment of the increasingly becalmed Disney franchise.

**(*)(*)(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 22/05/2017

Restoring Depp's reputation is a taller ask, but Salazar's Revenge at least lifts the curse of sequel bloat a little on its merrily choppy way.

***(*)(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 22/05/2017

Johnny Depp's familiar routine can't save the fifth Pirates instalment.

**(*)(*)(*)Jack Shepherd, The Independent, 22/05/2017

It’s a good natured romp of a film with enough action and humour to disguise its own shortcomings.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 24/05/2017

If you’re willing to pay to see the fifth instalment of a movie that began as a theme park attraction you can’t really complain about being taken for a ride.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 25/05/2017

Worth it for the astonishing open set-piece, but the rest is hot garbage.

Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 26/05/2017

Salazar’s Revenge is fast and funny and makes an undemanding romp for a bank holiday family outing.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 26/05/2017

Disney continues to milk its nautical cash cow with a dismal fifth outing for Johnny Depp and his crew.
