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 fifth instalment of the Pirates Of The Caribbean series illustrates the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and a formidable foe from his past — when he was still a young pirate who just became a captain. Captain Jack was down on his luck, could barely keep his crew together and was almost executed. He was neither safe on land nor at sea, with ghost sailors led by Captain Salazar hell-bent on revenge. His only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, which is known to control the sea and can break all curses at sea.

The Good
This latest instalment introduced new characters to the franchise, namely young sailor Henry and brilliant astronomer and horologist Carina Smyth. Both have their own captivating stories to tell and are after the Trident of Poseidon for their fathers. With a common goal, they went on a sea adventure with Captain Jack. It will not be surprising to see them return in the next instalment.

Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean 5: Salazar's Revenge also sees the return of Geoffrey Rush as Captain Hector Barbossa. With Captain Salazar killing all pirates at sea and leaving only one man per ship to tell the tale (because dead men tell no tales), Captain Barbossa quickly took sides and offered to lead him to Captain Jack. But Captain Barbossa has a bigger role to play in this film, and it is something, although cliche, worth watching for.

The Black Pearl also made an appearance during the climax. Along with the grand-sounding theme song, it is very heartening to see the Black Pearl regain its full size after the bottle holding it broke. The ship’s past as “Wicked Wench” was revealed during Captain Salazar’s flashbacks of young Jack Sparrow. Young Jack also proved to be a resourceful and dependable captain, saving his crew from Captain Salazar and his ship, Silent Mary.

The (Not That) Bad
The film featured Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), mainly at the end of the show. But their appearances are merely to set the path for the next instalment. (Be sure to stay till the end of the credits!)

And The Summary
Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean 5: Salazar's Revenge is as usual filled with Captain Jack Sparrow’s queer humour, but spiced up with an exciting storyline that will keep you entertained for the 129 minutes.
