First of is the title, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge – is for meant for our region and for the US, it’s Pirates of the Carribbean: Dead Men Tells No Tales. It is not a religion thingy so don’t get worked out for no reasons. Captain Jack Sparrow is back for another adventure. We love the POC franchise, it’s original, it’s mystical, and it has Keira Knightley.
The movie start’s off with young Turner’s son trying to meet his father with the most unconventional method. After meeting his dad, the young lad decided to go after the Trident of Poseidon. Believing that it could break any curse including the Ducthman’s curse in which Will Turner is curse too.
However it the mission doesn’t get the easier as he meets with Captain Salazar who has a unsettle beef with Jack Sparrow. After the narrowing escape with Captain Salazar, Henry Turner meets up with this mysterious girl – Carina Smyth who is carrying around a book that leads to the location of the Trident. The two some how manage to strike a deal with Jack to find the Trident.
Directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, they were more focused on the adventure rather than long talks. It’s was a straight and direct movie about what was the mission about and who do they need to end the journey. Nothing like the second and third installment of POC at all where there was long talks and detail dialogues.
As for Jack, well we felt he might have put a few pound and might have his touch a little? He isn’t as agile as he was once were. The lost of his passion for the sea is something very clear. We hope it’s only temporary. 🙂
It’s nice to see Captain Jack all about again but a little sad with it’s overall finishing. We were left a little hanging during climax and hope there is continuation from where it’s left. Screenbite is only able to give 5/10 for this movie.
P/s: There is end screen credit for this movie. So be sure not to leave earlier.
