The Plot:

Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil's Triangle. Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.

The Verdict:

What is there to say about the Pirates of the Caribbean story after the previous four movies?

It's a fantasy movie about pirates and the curses that are put on them, so what's different about this movie?

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales revolves around Henry Turner, who is William Turners son (played by Australian actor Brenton Thwaites) as he searches for the trident of Poseidon, which is said to have powers that can break all the curses that have been in the previous movies. Henry intends to use this to bring his father back from Davy Jones' Locker.

Of course, any POC movie wouldn't be complete without the beloved bumbling boob Captain Jack Sparrow (played by the one and only Johnny Depp), joined by the rest of the pirate world trying to get revenge for what he did to them in the past.

The movie is full of action right from the very start and as with every good movie there's a love story intertwined somewhere. This time is is between Henry and Carina Smyth (played by Kaya Scodelario).

I see this movie as the ending to all previous movies as it wraps them up, in a weird unbelievable way and yet still opens it up for future spinoffs.

The movie is full on funny lines and gags. It's an entertaining movie that I would see again although it's not to everyone's taste.
