Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales takes no prisoners in the latest installment of the franchise. Johnny Depp returns with wit and humor while Javier Bardem steals the spotlight by giving us goosebumps as he delivers a haunting performance.
The film follows Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites), son of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), who wants to break a curse that’s been placed on his father. For that, he needs to find Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) so that together, they can retrieve the Trident of Poseidon, which is the only way to break the curse. Also looking for the Trident is Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario).
While Henry, Carina and Jack Sparrow join forces on their mission, Sparrow’s old nemesis Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), now a ghost, escapes the Devil’s Triangle and is out for Sparrow’s head on a stick. To read a complete review of the film, click here.
