Captain Jack is back but what about the critical acclaim?
That's the question after "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" screened for the first time for select press and theater exhibitors at CinemaCon on Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
Johnny Depp returns as Sparrow in the fifth film of the franchise, which kicked off with strong reviews and big box office with "The Curse of the Black Pearl" almost 14 years ago. The fourth feature, "On Stranger Tides," was the last to drop in 2011, but wasn't met with the same fanfare as the previous installments.
Thankfully, most of the early buzz from the screening agrees on one thing: the fifth film is much better than the last one.
See some of the reaction below. "Dead Men Tell No Tales" doesn't hit theaters until May 26, 2017.

Like I predicted, Pirates 5 will be the best since the first, which is awesome because the 1st is in my top 5 movies!
