The new film in the franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales/Salazar’s Revenge, is the perfect way to reboot the franchise. It has the same humour, is slightly nostalgic and has lots of action. I loved every minute of it! So, here are the top five reasons to watch this beauty;
Johnny Depp/Captain Jack Sparrow
The first reason obviously has to be this god! He’s beautiful, funny, sarcastic, care-free, and stylish. No Pirates of the Caribbean film would be complete without this man and his iconic character.
Will Turner and Elizabeth Turner
Although this was kind of obvious, you do see these beloved characters again! And, yes, it is low-key emotional! It was so amazing to see these characters back in the films, even if it was for a short amount of time, because it reminds you of why you loved them.
The Black Pearl
Speaking of seeing old characters, The Black Pearl makes an appearance! I felt like a kid in a toy store when I saw this ship in the movie; you’re instantly reminded of the fuss about this ship. It’s so exciting.
With the new character, Carina Smyth, a slightly wider perspective on the role of women in that day and age is provided. And Carina Smyth is sassy, smart, cute, and fits in perfectly. However, my favourite bit about this character was the misinterpretation of what a “horologist” was; “my mother was a horologist too but she didn’t go shouting about it!”
As always, the adventure and story in the Pirates film is always exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. There’s a lot to focus and think about. With new characters and more information on Captain Jack’s past, everything is fresh and new.
If you haven’t seen the new Pirates film yet, hopefully these reasons will encourage you to see it ASAP!
