The fifth Pirates film follows the story of fan-favourite Will Turner’s son, Henry (Brenton Thwaites), who has spent his life trying to break the curse that condemns his dad to the ocean.
The only way to do that is by securing the mystical Trident of Poseidon. When the ship he’s aboard is set upon by Spanish Sea Captain Armando Salazar (Javier Bardem), Henry is the sole survivor charged with delivering a message – death is coming for Captain Jack Sparrow.
Elsewhere, Carina (Kaya Scodelario) is on trial for witchcraft (read astronomy), and holds the only map to the Trident, and Jack is on death row after being arrested for robbing a bank. As fate would have it, Henry rescues them both, and the race is on to outrun Salazar, find the artefact, and save Will.
Thwaites and Scodelario are endearing additions to the cast and have genuine chemistry, but Depp’s drunken uncle shtick is wearing a bit thin by round five. Dead Men Tell No Tales is an archetypal PotC adventure with sea warfare, treasure, swashbuckling, swordfights, and the return of Captain Barbossa and the Flying Dutchman. You even find out where Jack Sparrow got his name.
