Will Center’s review published on Letterboxd:
It's weird to me that nobody else is making Pirate movies. Pirates are, for my money, one of the coolest things ever, and the perfect subjects for adventure movies, but this series kind of cornered the market on big budget pirate movies. I think that's why I like them so much despite them being pretty far from perfect: nobody else has really done it better.
Honestly, if you just remake this movie beat-for-beat, shot-for-shot, but replace Johnny Depp with, say, I don't know, Ryan Gosling, and shave off like 30 minutes here and there, it'd be a 10/10.
