Christian Alec’s review published on Letterboxd:
Fun is the main word I can think about when writing about this. The first in a never ending series, doesn't feel at all like a gimmick centered around Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. Everyone is given a nice amount of screen time to work with, the action is enough, the story is very interesting, but damn it's so long. It's more than half an hour long. Anyway, I was obsessed with this as a kid and could watch it many times in a week for some reason. I had an easy attention span I guess. I'll have to re-visit the next installments just to remember these more. For being something based off a ride, it's pretty good!
