“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” Movie Review

9 years ago

A young Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) figures out a way to meet with his father, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom).  But the meeting is less than satisfactory as Will is still cursed on the Flying Dutchman. But, Henry hatches a plan to break the curse:  Find Poseidon’s lost trident then he will control the seas and break his father’s curse. But to do that, he needs the assistance of Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp).

9 Years later

An adult Henry meets Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario) an astronomer who is also looking for the lost trident. Carina has a diary given to her by her long lost father to help her, but, she cannot read the clues to the tridents location until the blood moon.  Henry is still searching for Sparrow to help him find the trident.

Cursed Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) is also looking for Jack Sparrow, but, to kill him.  Sparrow is a popular guy. 🙂

Finally connecting with Jack: Henry, Carina,  and, now, Captain Barbosa (Geoffrey Rush) all set out on the Black Pearl to find the trident while also running from Salazar.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is a swashbuckling adventure typical of previous Pirates movies. It is a bit hard to follow until later in the movie when all the pieces come together. OK for the whole family.

New characters are introduced allowing the future story lines to continue with fresh blood while keeping / reintroducing some old blood (Depp, Bloom and, yes, Keira Knightley).

Stay all the way through the credits to get a hint of what will come…..

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this at the Tracy, CA CineMark theater.
