Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review

The final movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean series opens today.  I have been looking forward to this movie release since it was announced they were making a fourth.

Jack is back with his crew (some new faces and some old friends too) to find the Trident of Poseidon which, legends states, will end all curses at sea.  As with the previous Pirates of the Caribbean movies, the movie is full of Jack’s antics and nothing ever seems to go as planned for him. Along the way, Jack must fight the deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar which he had tricked early in his pirating career. 

I couldn’t be happier with this final movie.  It tied all the loose ends together from previous movies and we get a glimpse into Jack’s past. I might have shed a few tears at the end (just warning you now).  I will definitely let my kids see the movie (8 & 12).  There are a few suggestive comments, drunkenness, and fighting but it’s pretty similar in tone to the first movies (but not as dark as the third).  Of course, you know your children best and you’ll know how they respond.

I saw the movie in 3D on an IMAX screen and it was incredible. I highly recommend the 3D version of the movie, I felt like I was on the boat with the crew. This is probably one of the best 3D movies I’ve seen.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens nationwide Friday (5/26/17).
