Is the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise played out?

"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men To No Tales" is the highly-anticipated fifth installment in the franchise. But critics argue it's time for Disney to give the series a rest. "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" was a mega success, and Johnny Depp even garnered an Oscar nomination in 2004. But over the years, the series has deteriorated. The "Pirates" movies have made $3.7 billion worldwide so far and a sixth installment is in the works. What do you think? ☠ 🎥

Not all critics hate "Dead Me Tell No Tales." The film is meant to be fun adventure, just like its predecessors. 

Slate's Jeffrey Bloomer writes:

Javier Bardem, taking up a fine villain mantle previously worn by Geoffrey Rush, Bill Nighy, and Ian McShane, spits and shivers and has great fun as Salazar, the leader of yet another army of undead mariners. Rønning and Sandberg wisely lavish attention on the work of their crack visual-effects team, who animate every living corpse with loving detail.

So far, "Dead Men Tell No Tales" has a 31 percent rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes. OUCH!

Many critics agree with Film Threat's Bernard Boo, who writes: 

This PG-13 middle-ground just doesn’t seem like it’ll satisfy any demographic fully, and while the film treats us to a handful of genuinely fun set pieces and a couple of standout performances, the rest of its elements feel too safe and mass-manufactured to save this sinking series.
