The quick and nimble, Jack Sparrow has once again found himself in the middle of danger, adventure, and the ultimate test of camaraderie. In the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, a slightly darker-than-usual scene surfaces up the big screen. It opens with a young boy diving into the terrifying depths of the sea at night. At the onset, viewers will probably have an idea of how this isn’t their usual, Pirates movie with mythical and whimsical creatures involved. Instead, they’ll find a slightly mature tone to the movie loaded with gothic-looking ghosts, hungry for revenge.

Sure, there are lesser youth-friendly elements to the movie but Captain Jack’s humor will still tickle one’s funny bones, especially in the middle of altercations. In this movie, Captain Salazar along with his army of ghost pirates has left the Devil’s Triangle to kill every pirate at sea, including Sparrow and Captain Barbossa. Good thing they’ve found Henry Turner and Carina Smyth as new alliances. Filled with swordfights, outwitting, pandemonium, and ship explosions, viewers who thirst for cinematographic action won’t run out of reasons to rave about this installment.
Johnny Depp’s playful, not a care in the world type of acting is on point with the character he’s portraying. With slurry, drunken speech and a detached demeanor, it’s no wonder how Captain Sparrow managed to survive one exploit after another in each Pirates film.
The film’s music continues to stay grandiose and packed with tones of unrest, yet fullness in chords and progressions. Strings, especially the cello stays predominant, as if to further stimulate the interest of the viewers in every plot twist and banter exchanges. Anyone who’s up for some good old, by-the-sea adventures will surely find this fifth Pirate film exciting and worthwhile to see on the big screen.
