Remember when the first Carribean film came out and we all was so mesmerized and loved the story, we met Elizabeth Swan and Will Turner, the very charming but frustrating Jack Sparrow, Barbossa and his crew. And now in this 5th installment we get to met some of th people we met in the very first film and oh boy it is nostalgic.
It’s been 19 years since Elizabeth’s and Will’s son been born, his name is Henry and all he want is to break his fathers curse (if you remember he is stuck on the dutchmen) . He knows a lot about curses and pirates, obviously. But not everyone believe in curses and ghosts. Til one day the boat he is on gets attacked, by ghost pirates. He gets back to mainland being the only survivor and also, being a traitor because he tried to have the boat to turn around because they was about to sail into a cursed place. Captain not listening ended up being attacked. But Henry being hung up by they got attacked by ghost but one person need his help to find something called Poseidon triad. Something that would break any sea curse so Henry want to get his hands on it, but first, he need to find Jack Sparrow. Henry get help by Jack – which end up being quite difficult because well, Jack being Jack. His other partner is a woman, Carina. Who never her father but she does without knowing it. He gangs up with Jack, Henry and Carina to help find the treasure to fight the ghost pirates who has it in for, guess who!? Jack Sparrow. But who do you think it is? My jaw dropped when it came out.
‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’ is funny, action filled, witty and sad all wrapped into a nice ‘Pirates of the Carribean’ bow. We do get to meet Will Turner again as well as Elizabeth Swan, since they are Henry’s parents. If you are a big fan of the franchise you should watch the film. It’s amazing. But you should see the first 3 films before seeing this one.
