Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pirates of the Caribbean is the twelfth-highest grossing franchise so it’s inevitable we would have a fifth film titled, Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Men Tell No Tales. When Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) escapes from the Devils Triangle he immediately goes after the pirate who sent him there, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). In the meantime, Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) Is searching for the powerful Trident of Poseidon so he can lift the curse from his father Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) who is trapped on the bottom of the sea in the Flying Dutchman. Captain Jack Sparrow and Henry team up with Captain Hector Barbossa (Jeffery Rush) to defeat Captain Salazar who is trying to take over the seas with his ghost ship, and yes – ghost sharks. This is the fifth Pirates of The Caribbean film and it’s really not a bad movie, but hopefully, it’s the last. It’s exciting to see (No pun intended.) Captain Jack Sparrow back on the screen, then it’s back to more of the same: pirates, swordfights, and trash talking. (Don’t all pirates do that.) The film ends on a high note, but unless you’re a Pirates of the Caribbean fan you’re not looking forward to another movie. Yes, it’s convoluted, but it’s still fast paced and fun and a good summertime popcorn flick. The soundtrack is fantastic and this is the shortest Pirates of the Caribbean film at just over 2 hours which is marvelous. It’s refreshing to note that there is no cliffhanger at the end which is hopefully an indication that this is the last movie in the franchise. (Of course, this depends upon the possibility that big bucks could be made from a sixth one.) I’m giving this action, adventure, fantasy, a B- rating. Be sure to stay to the very end of the credits for a humorous scene.

This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA
