Movies when promoting the Disney pic in the U.K., Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp along with Jerry Bruckheimer say that the reviewers are responsible for the unimpressive performance of the film at the box office.

"I think the reviews were written seven to eight months before we even released the film," Depp tells Yahoo! Movies.
