Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017)
Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack Sparrow feels the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost sailors led by his old nemesis, the evil Capt. Salazar, escape from the Devil's Triangle. Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it, he must forge an uneasy alliance with a brilliant and beautiful astronomer and a headstrong young man in the British navy.
It has been a while since I wrote a review for any movie. If something was okay, I would let it pass, and if something was bad, I would just rate it and let it go.But this movie PotC: Dead Men bla bla bla is probably the WORST movie I have seen in a LONG time. And I love watching movies!Whether it is the story, the actors/actresses, the sub plots, the absurdity of things, the time line, EVERYTHING is just abysmal. #AbysmalI am glad I did not spend money to watch this movie. If I did I would have probably killed myself by now. That is how much I hated this movie.The CGI was kind of decent in the movie though, especially some dead creatures who were see through.
I didn't expect much. Most of the previous pirates I gave a 5 or a 6. The first pirates got an instant 10. This one I gave a masterfully done 9. I was blown out of the water. I greatly cared for a character. It was none other than barbossa. Intentions behind every character was revealing, abundant, and satisfying. This movie was a thrill ride and was very unexpected how it turned out for me. Thank you for a WONDERFUL treat.
Being a fan of the series, I would still recommend this if you enjoy the series, however this film is below average.The main problem is the last hour and a half or so with the island scene just wasn't done well at all, doesn't fit with the plot well, and just feels like filler that doesn't make sense.I thoroughly enjoyed the first hours action scenes as well as the last couple scenes with the water wall on each side.If you want to be able to enjoy this film, have a drink and watch along for the actions and maybe take a break in the middle to go get a refill of whatever your having.
When it comes to this viewers expect something out of league. Though an interesting story is attempted but the passivity of Jack's role and too much of fantasy made an improper mix. Nevertheless the wit of Jack does entertain a little and so was his cast at youth when he uses his wit and rightly named 'Jack Sparrow'. Overall a better is expected when it comes to this.
