Pirates of the Caribbean is just mindless entertainment. Some of the stories are rethreads of the previous movies, with similar characters. The movie could have benefited from been shorter in length and more focused in its story lines. I would have preferred to see more of Barbossa and less of the Orlando Bloom look-alike. That specific story arc did not function properly in the movie.

But it is welcome that less CGI was used in this movie than in the previous ones. Moreover, some of it was filmed here in Puerto Rico (I recognized the entrance to the Caverns of the Camuy River, as well as small island in the east of Puerto Rico. If you are ever in Puerto Rico, go to this park, it is amazing).
