Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “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 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.”

Positive—I just got back from watching this movie, and WOW. It was such a fun experience. Great action, great actors, and great comedy. The sets and visual effects were phenomenal. Johnny Depp did an amazing job as always at playing Jack Sparrow. I believe this chapter was better than the previous one—which I enjoyed very much, but not to the extent of this one.

***SPOILER*** I loved how they brought back Will Turner and had him meet with his wife, Elizabeth at the end. That was probably my favorite part. ***END SPOIlER***

I’d say the only things in this movie that should be taken with caution would be the brutal violence, a shot of a basket beneath a guillotine with two severed heads with flies consuming them, and the cruel carelessness for the lives of others. Aside from those few things, I would highly recommend this movie to everyone ten and up—anyone under ten would probably be a little disturbed by the film’s undead-themed content.
