Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is a fantasy-action film and the fifth installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. This time Captain Jack Sparrow takes us on an adventure trip to find a map-less treasure which no man has managed to find till date.
Johnny Depp, Kevin McNally, and Geoffrey Rush reprise their roles as Jack Sparrow, Joshamee Gibbs, and Barbossa, respectively. The story has a new villain in the form of a Spanish Captain Armando Salazar, played by Javier Bardem. We also have two new characters Henry Turner and Carina Smyth.
Henry wants to free his father(Will Turner) from the curse, Carina wants to fulfill her father’s wish, Captain Salazar wants revenge from Jack and Jack wants to save himself from dying. All these things lead to one thing, finding the Trident of Poseido. It is a treasure which has the power to wash away all the curses of the sea.
Depp and Bardem carry the whole movie on their shoulders with their fine acting. The story is low on excitement and curiosity but still, manages to entertain with some exciting visual effects. This movie tries to complete the whole franchise story by tying all the loose ends. You may feel the franchise is going to end. But do wait after the end credits for another surprise.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge has lots of action, comic scenes, and fantasy elements. Even though it is not the best film from the franchise but it will entertain you for sure.
