The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has always been a solid choice for fun and action. Johnny Depp really made Captain Jack Sparrow his own and Dead Men Tell No Tales is step up after the rather disappointing At Worlds End. It helps that Javier Bardem (in makeup and CGI) makes for a more compelling villain with Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario picking up the slack as a new generation of young adventurers. The humor is there, the action is there - it's Pirates, you either like the series or you don't.
