As for the film, I'd say it was worth a $5 Tuesday matinee if the theater has recliners. It was pretty meh, but it at least had some slightly memorable moments, unlike PIRATES 4, which completely went in one ear and out the other. And it was also mercifully short -- the length of Verbinski's movies kept them from being as good as they could have been.

Yeah the Pirates films have always dragged a bit for me even the really fun first one. The second one was a marvelous spectacle but it was a bit long too. Pirates 3 dragged and I thought wasn't as good as the previous two but the fourth one was just a drag of uninspired filmmaking. The 3D was also so damn dark on that one many scenes were almost unwatchable.
