Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a pleasant surprise. Continues the legacy, focuses on the characters and the world.

New "Pirates of the Caribbean" has good pacing, solid action and a menacing villain in Javier Bardem. #CinemaCon2017

The new Pirates of the Caribbean is a big step up from the lifeless 4. Back to the fun myth building, still miss Verbinski's imprint.

Fans of #PiratesoftheCaribbean will not be disappointed. Pirates 5 is a very fun, action packed adventure w subtle nods to the ride itself.

You might be surprised to hear me say this but I really dug the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Action set pieces are a lot of fun. pic.twitter.com/mluWwqyU8r

One critic even compared it to the first film, which is still considered the best:

It would be a welcome return to form for the franchise, after the previous film was poorly received by critics. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales arrives in theaters on 26th May. See its trailer below:
