Pirates of the Caribbean:Dead Men Tell No Tales Movie Review
Pirates of the Caribbean fans will not be disappointed with the latest movie in the series. Dead Men Tell No Tales is sure to be a box office hit. This new film introduces us to new characters Henry played by Brenton Thwaites and Carina Smyth played by Kaya Scodelario. These two become intertwined when they meet trying to break the curse that has a hold of their parents. In this film we also get to see a little of Jack Sparrow’s back story which is always interesting in sequel movies as they dive deeper into a character’s backstory. I don’t want to give away too many details but you will find yourself amazed at the special effects and scenery that have gone into this film. It is an amazing movie and I must warn you that you will want to stay through the ending credits for a surprise!
Story Synopsis:Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
The movie is rated PG-13 and contains the same level of action as previous films. I don’t think there is any more violence or supernatural elements than previous films so if your child has seen the other films this one should not shock or scare them. If you want a more in depth look at individual situations in the film you can check out the review at Common Sense Media.
