Pirates of the Caribbean, when it came out in the early 2000s, was one of the most original and unique movies to be released in recent memory. It was a great mix of comedy, adventure and action that could appeal to the whole family. Depp's boozy Captain Jack Sparrow was part ruthless pirate and part sly wink. You never knew which one you would get. The first one got it all right: a great story, a ton of adventure and a lot of fun. However, the series has dropped in quality a bit more with each subsequent release, to the point that now I find the whole thing boring, trite and overdone. Depp's Sparrow continues his act, but now it's more canned and predictable. The story seems to be written as it goes along, so you lose track of what's going on and who's doing what and why we even care. It deals with Will Turner and Elizabeth Swain's son and that he wants to join an evil pirate group and yada yada. Some explosions, sword fights, Sparrow drunk walking and some boats on the water. Ho hum. The good news was at two hours, this was one of the shorter films in the series. The bad news is this aging franchise has long overstayed its welcome.

An Aging Franchise Overstays its welcomeReviewed bykingbk-2Vote: 3/10
I was really expecting another good story in the series, but this failed to deliver. The movie was very tedious to watch, and a number of times, I almost walked out, but kept thinking it had to get better. It did not. Jack, was a weaker, and not as focused on his stunts, but being drunk and unable to function in any manor. The story line was weak, and not very interesting, although it could have been better done. Most of the actors, seemed to be there more for the paycheck, than to give another good performance. In all, I could not find anything that made the movie worth the money I spent. Did not even get one laugh out of it.
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.
