Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales aka Salazar’s Revenge stars Johnny Depp as our beloved pirate who is in search of the mythical Poseidon’s Trident, a staff believed to give the power of the seas to whomever possesses it. However, while on his quest, he must evade Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) who has a bone to pick with him.

Allegedly the last in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise (yeah, we don’t believe that), this installment is exactly what I expected it to be because I didn’t expect it to be any better than any of its predecessors. I am not saying that this movie is bad, I just think the franchise has run its course and its’time for the producers to lay it to rest. For one, Jack Sparrow isn’t as funny as we remember him because we have come to expect his antics. Also the premise that his adventures are always about trying to break one curse or the other is starting to wear thin.

The highlight of the whole movie was Javier Bardem’s liquescent hair which pleased me to no end. Honestly, Javier’s hair and the CGI was all that caught my attention in the movie. Ordinarily, the plot of a movie should be the zenith of the film but unfortunately this wasn’t the case for me. If anything, I was particularly caught up with the antagonist Captain Salazar whose Spanish accent made him out as one smooth but evil villain.

I suspect that we are beginning to tire of Jack Sparrow whom we aren’t sure if he is drunk or just gay. Whatever it is, he isn’t as funny as he used to be and methinks it’s time for him to go to Davy Jones ’s locker – you get my drift? (See what I did there?. I noticed that in this installment the producers seemed to be tying loose ends and putting a close to the movie but I was shocked when I saw an after credit scene that points to another movie. Apparently, Disney have also caught the Marvel bug where they sneak a scene after the closing credits which suggests the direction of a sequel.

Nevertheless, Pirates of the Caribbean was entertaining with some great visuals and Jack Sparrow up to his usual capers which make for a good laugh and I do recommend that you guys go see it at the cinema.

Don’t forget to stay for the after credit scene which we will see if the producers will build upon so why not buy a ticket here and reserve a seat for yourself?
