Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge Review

Dead Men Tell No Tales! (It is called Salazar’s Revenge in the UK)

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge stars Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Twaites, Kaya Scodelario and Orlando Bloom.

When Captain Salazar escapes the Devil’s triangle, he heads straight after the person that put him there, Captain Jack Sparrow. Captain Jack teams up with new and old friends as they look for the Trident of Poseidon, a legendary artifact that allows the user to control the sea.

Positives. First thing is that this film looks great. The effects have come along way since the first film was released 14 years ago. We even get another use of the de-ageing outside of Marvel and Star Wars, this time with a young Jack Sparrow which looked really good but still isn’t perfect. I really liked the new character of Henry, who is a character that made sense to have in the film. The new villain is also good and will definetly scare younger children who see the film and is a good villain, which we didn’t get in the last film. I was very worried that there were not going to be any consequences to what they characters did in the film, but after the credits they give a nice tease as to what the next film could be and that got me really excited.

Negatives. Jack was abit too chaotic in this film, especially at the start where he is drunk for the first 30/40 minutes and he becomes annoying. In the next film, I would like to see the other characters take a lead and have Jack be a side character instead of being the main lead of the film. The story is interesting, it felt a lot like other Pirates of the Caribbean, with the army of dead pirates and with a male and female main characters, who are very similar to Elizabeth and Will from the trilogy.

Definetly better than the last one, with a promising look to the future of the franchise.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
