Not as good as the others
I had high expectations for this movie, and it fell a little short. As for age ratings, it really depends on the maturity of your child. The movie's violence didn't bother me at all, but may scare smaller children. I saw a couple walk in the theater with four kids from about ages 1-6. I didn't hear any screaming and crying so they were fine, I guess. I also know a nine-year-old that saw it, but they watch all kinds of movies that I'm not allowed to watch, so that didn't really surprise me.
Violence: There is lots of violence, including gunfire, sword fights, punching, etc. Salazar kills every man except one to tell the story. Not much blood, but there are screams and moans as the men are killed.
Sex: With Captain Jack in this movie, you can expect some talk of women, of course. And besides, they're pirates! Henry and Carina fall for each other, but their love story somehow wasn't as good as Will and Elizabeth's.
Drinking: Captain Jack drinks much more than in the other movies. He's very drunk sometimes.
Scaryness: Salazar and his crew are pretty creepy with their pale, cracked skin and bloodlust. Some of them are just peices of flesh floating around. If your kid is afraid of sharks, I would recommend picking a different movie, as there are three zombie-sharks that persue Henry and Jack while they're in a dinghy and rowing to shore.
I recommend this movie to pirates of the Caribbean fans, but just remember that it's not as good as the other movies.
