In the Caribbean the pirates are loose again: Many years after Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) became the new captain of the Flying Dutchman and since then has been condemned to a life on the seabed by the curse that rests on the ship, his son Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) sets out in search of a way to break the curse and bring his father back to the realm of the living. There is only one possibility - but to find it Henry needs the help of Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). And the horrible Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) with his pirates from the shadow world is just looking for life. Together with the combative star researcher Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), the energetic Henry and a ship only partially seaworthy, Sparrow sets off on a new adventure to save his own life, but perhaps also Will's - well, actually only to save his own&.hellip;
I think there is no doubt that Fremde Gezeiten was a rather average film and by far the weakest part of the Pirates of the Caribbean series. But since more than 800 million dollars were still washed into the box office, it was foreseeable that there would be another reunion with Jack Sparrow. For "Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge", Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, two really talented directors, were hired, who with their Oscar candidate "Kon Tiki" have proven that they can produce good adventure films. And indeed, part five is a return to the old form. But that's also the big problem of the movie.
No question, the new adventure is a lot of fun, the effects are great and the action is neat. But the film doesn't offer anything new. Fishing here is only done in safe waters and the staging follows the proven formula of success too closely to be able to derive any new aspects from it. Sure, especially for fans of the first three parts there are some nice moments in which the stories of different characters are told very nicely to the end. And Javier Bardem, as an undead pirate, is quite a bit scary. Nevertheless, as a viewer you always have the feeling that you have seen it all very often. Surprises are in vain here, even if the makers try hard to offer the spectators fresh food for the eyes.
Although some sequences are big, spectacular as the effects may be, they can never even come close to the wow effect that the first parts were able to create. The same goes for Johnny Depp's game. Sure, his Jack Sparrow is still very amusing - but what used to be refreshing and different has now become routine.
"Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge" is far from being a bad movie. The viewers are offered an entertaining adventure film with a little bit of horror, lots of good jokes and great effects. Nevertheless, it would have been nice if the makers had moved a little bit more out of their comfort zone to make sure that there was really a breath of fresh air blowing through the pirate ship sails. Those who are satisfied with seeing only the familiar will have a lot of fun here. But those who hoped for a bit more variety could leave the cinema a little disappointed despite the very conciliatory ending.
Another tip: Despite the round end, there is an additional scene after the credits, which is actually completely unnecessary, but leaves room for a sixth part. ]
