While I thought it was much better than the 3rd one, I much prefer the 1st and 2nd movies.
I am not a P. Cruz fan, so I'm sure that didn't help. Loved Ian McShane as Blackbeard. And of course, Johnny Depp was fantastic. I always love that character and how he brings it to life. My favorite line of his dealt with him blowing up the lighthouse and saying something like, "did everyone see that, as I will NOT be doing that again." Hilarious!
