      Critics Consensus

      It's shorter and leaner than the previous sequel, but this Pirates runs aground on a disjointed plot and a non-stop barrage of noisy action sequences.

      Leonard Maltin indieWire Remember how fresh and novel Pirates of the Caribbean seemed in 2003? Remember the fun of seeing Johnny Depp's off-the-wall portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow for the first time? It may be It may be hard to think back that far, because the lumbering... Jun 8, 2011 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com just wish this movie had made me feel something, anything, even disappointment or anger. Instead, all I'm left in is a benign state of indifference. Rated: 2/4 Jun 3, 2011 Full Review David Denby New Yorker Depp, grimacing, edges in and out of the action and seems irrelevant and bored most of the time. May 23, 2011 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review But there’s more of commercial in this film than cinema, and the entire project stinks of that ‘obligatory Hollywood sequel’ stench. Rated: 2/4 Jun 7, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) This badly constructed script drowns, and not for a lack of action. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 9, 2022 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins From the very opening scene, it's apparent that the magic that once coursed through the veins of the original has all but run dry.

      Peter P It's overhated but isn't amazing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/07/24 Full Review Aender S I don't get the general hate this film gets, it's an excellent adventure flick. I even prefer it over its three predecessors. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/25/24 Full Review Alysha S This film was actually great until a scene at the end involving something shrunken. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review Soteris S Everything that made the original trilogy epic is gone in this mediocre movie which still manages to be enjoyable at times, although overall a poor imitation of its predecessors with an unimaginative soundtrack, a predictable plot, silly humor and unimpressive action. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/24 Full Review Zinjx W The fourth chapter in the pirate saga is exactly what you want... It's definitely entertaining. And visually exciting. And not without humor either. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review Riccardo D Quite a waste of a few good ideas. While it is not completely bad, it felt like a significant step down from the height of the original trilogy. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
