REVIEW: Pirates of the Caribbean returns once again with another sequel, this time the 5th installment, with as much as promise and expectation as the previous movies. At this point one would wonder just how many movies this series can have, but the makers certainly don't disappoint. Like always, Johnny Depp's performance as Captain Jack Sparrow is the main reason for anyone to want to watch the movie. His acting is as entertaining as ever, and in quite a few scenes he manages a hefty amount of laughs and shocks. But his new sternness in character can be an unpleasant surprise to many new fans. Captain Salazar's bizarre appearance makes it hard to recognize Javier Bardem, and the effectiveness is doubled by a fantastic performance. His debut as a negative character was praiseworthy, and his ghost crews' deformed figures were fun to watch.
Overall, this sequel is rated much better than the previous ones, as the viewers will feel the taste of the old Pirates of the Caribbean movies in this one. This sequel is also made better by the return of Will Turner and Elizabeth Turner, so fans of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley will definitely be rejoiced. This movie provides a whole new adventure with lots of laughs, actions and heartbreaking moments. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will leave the fans in reminiscence and will make them await the next one!
