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.
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.
