Johnny Depp is back as the swashbuckling, rum loving Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tails. Jack is down on his luck with no boat or crew when he meets young Henry Turner. Henry is determined to find the Trident of Poseidon, the anchor of all sea curses, so that he can save his father Will (Orlando Bloom) from the Flying Dutchman. With the help of Carina, a female scientist who is the only one who can read the map to find the trident, they must outrun both Captain Barbossa and the undead Captain Salazar, who has unfinished business with Jack.
The previous two entries in the Pirates series had left a lot to desired, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It had the feel and the energy of the first movie. There were some laggy parts, like the unexpected beach wedding, but overall it was neat to see a lot of the loose ends from the previous movies tied up and see a little bit of Jack’s history.
One of the bright points of the movies has been seeing Jack and Barbossa interact, and this one was a bit bittersweet. Johnny and Geoffrey are a great pair on screen, and Geoffrey will be sorely missed if there is another move. Speaking of sequel, make sure you watch through the creds to see the great post credits screen.
Overall, it was an enjoyable movie that they whole family will enjoy. My daughter really liked it. Dead Man Tell No Tales is available now on both Digital and Blu-ray.
I received a digital copy of the above mentioned movie for free for a review. All options are 100% my own.
