Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Of course, this would not be a Pirates of the Caribbean movie without everyone's favorite character: Captain Jack Sparrow tagging along. Sparrow, Henry and Carina seek to recover the Trident of Poseidon, which breaks all curses in the sea.

Armando Salazar played by Javier Bardem is an old nemesis.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales stars Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Orlando Bloom, and more. He continued saying, "Since I finished Pirates, I did Romeo and Juliet on Broadway, some smaller movies that I wanted to try and have a performance piece".

Pirates also may benefit from what one reviewer on CinemaBlend called a "more refined era of 3D". "So the narrative is similar". The action and impressive use of CGI redeemed the film and at least put it on a higher level compared to "On Stranger Tides".

Dead Men is not as magical or intriguing as the first film, so don't expect to love it more.

I liked the first Pirates of the Caribbean film when it first came out in 2003. Directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, the fifth installment, "Dead Men Tell No Tales", draws mixed reviews.

All swoozy and splishy, drunk and dodgy, hilariously rock and roll, Sparrow made all of us wish for the pirate's life.

Overall, the film receives 2 1/2 stars out of 5, getting a bonus 1/2 star just for the guillotine escape sequence which I can't wait to watch again. At the time, the witch Tia Dalma speaks to Jack about the item that he has which should be able to help him, an item that they bartered for, which turns out to be the compass. "Just in a few days of us getting into the project, we started looking at them beyond what we read in the papers". (No, right?) But how long can he play this same character? "You could do the dumbest things and people giggle". We should honour the tradition of showing a Jack Sparrow family member.

Depp, who's had a tough year in the headlines thanks to an acrimonious divorce from wife Amber Heard, as well as claims and counter claims about his behavior and lavish lifestyle, sat out media interviews for the film in Los Angeles.

Salazar's Revenge is out on Thursday, May 25.
