Movie review: 'Dead Men' shows some signs of life

It's been six years since the fourth movie in the amusement park ride-inspired "Pirates of the Caribbean," that one subtitled "On Stranger Times," sailed into local theaters. It was beginning to look like the Disney Studios had keelhauled the franchise leaving Johnny Depp to make such forgettable flops as "The Lone Ranger," "The Rum Diary," "Dark Shadows" and "Transcendence." Out of respect for Depp the film "Mortdecai" will only be known as the movie whose name won't be mentioned.
