AKA Dead Man Tells No Tale in other markets. Another series of films I’ve not got into but took Bryony and Dawn to see as they are in to the series, I’ve only watched the first film in the series but have now got the other films to watch.
Starring Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, Javier Bardem as Captain Armando Salazar, Brenton Thwaites as Henry Turner, Kayla Scodelario as Carina Barbossa/Smyth, Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa with Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley briefly reappearing as Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann.
The film follows Henry Turner (son of Will and Elizabeth) as he searches both Captain Jack Sparrow and the Trident of Poseidon to break the curse of the Flying Dutchman and free his father, aboard a royal navy ship following a pirate ship he notices that they are about to enter the Devils Triangle and after trying to make the captain turn around he is jailed for insubordination and locked up, the ship enters the triangle and the ghost ship of Silent Mary attacks them and the undead sailors slaughter the crew of the Monarch except for Henry and tells him to warn Jack Sparrow he’s coming for him and says he always leaves one sailor alive to them the tale as Dead Men Tells No Tales. On St Martins, Carina Smyth is in jailed being accused of being a witch and whilst talking to a priest she manages to pick her lock and shackles and escapes where she bumps first into Jack who had managed to break into a Safe to sleep, which is then stolen by his crew. Then whilst disguised as a nurse she meets Henry and they manage to talk a bit about the Trident. But both Jack and Carina are then captured whilst Henry escapes and they’re sentenced to death and by luck they’re due to be executed at the same time and between Henry and Jack’s crew they manage to free both of them and this starts the adventures across the seas hunting for the Trident using the map Carina has in a form of a book left to her by her father (this brings around a sub-plot). Watch the film for the rest.
I enjoyed this film and will now get round to watching the others to see if I can now get in to the series as sometimes it may take me a few attempts at watching films to get into them (the same as music). A tip for those yet to see the film, you need to stay until after the credits to see a bonus scene.
7/10 a good and very watchable film.
