“Avast ye lubbers, tis time to set your sights on sailing ships carrying gold, so down yer rum and be off to the high seas with yer Cap’n”. Yes my friends, Captain Jack Sparrow returns in his latest adventure as “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” opens today. Give a glance to the poster, the premise and the cast and I’ll close out with a few thoughts.
Captain Jack Sparrow is pursued by an old rival, Armando Salazar, who along with his Spaniard Navy ghost crew has escaped from the Devil’s Triangle, and is determined to kill every pirate at sea. Jack seeks the Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that grants its possessor total control over the seas, in order to defeat Salazar. (care of Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: With the holiday weekend getting in full sway (and a birthday to boot), I don’t think that I am seeing this film right away. I also never saw the previous installment and I am that kind of viewer who needs to see all films in sequential order so my enjoyment level is at its peak. It does look like fun and I did enjoy the first three films so I will be scanning the PPV channels I subscribe to and see if its available on any of them. What about you readers? Will you be setting sail with Captain Jack Sparrow when he first leaves the dock for this adventure? Let me know down in the comments area below.
