Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil's Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea...including him. Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.
(at around 37 mins) The two Pirates who interrupt Captain Barbossa, while he is having Breakfast are the two redcoats from the first movie who are "guarding the dock" (DF) when Captain Jack Sparrow first arrives. They deserted the British Navy and converted to piracy during Cutler Beckett's downfall at the hands of the joint forces of the crew's of the Black Pearl and Will Turner's Flying Dutchman. See more »
Gunlocks, or flintlock firing mechanisms, are visible on the cannons of the British ship as an officer cocks them. These devices were rare since they only could be adapted to new guns, and only became a standard issue in the British Navy around the 1800's, fifty years after the movie is set. See more »
A scene after the end credits shows Will and Elizabeth asleep when their bedroom is entered by a silhouette of Davy Jones. Will awakens and assumes this as a nightmare, but is oblivious to a few of Jones' tokens remaining. See more »
I think it's high time Disney dropped the anchor for the Pirates franchise as this fifth installment went in no new directions. It's noisy, unfunny, and painfully unbalanced. The villain is forgettable, Jack Sparrow contributes nothing to the story, and the quirky nature clashes unevenly with the darker and grittier sequences, a flaw that's persisted worse and worse since Curse of the Black Pearl. There are a few entertaining set- pieces, but for the most part Dead Men Tell No Tales is a mindnumbing and senseless picture that was absolutely dreadful to sit through.
