The day we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is finally available to bring home! I missed seeing this film in the theater so I am so extremely excited that it’s finally in stores.
I’ll give you a little backstory in case you’ve forgotten where we left off in the PIrates of the Caribean series. Will Turner is now part of the crew of the Flying Dutchman but before he was cursed he had a son, Henry Turner. Young Henry is a huge part of Dead Men Tell No Tales.
In Dead Men Tell No Tales we first meet up with young Henry as he searches for his father. Henry is determined that he is going to break the curse and bring his father home to reunite with his mother. He’s devoted his whole life to learning all the lore and tales of the sea looking for a way to break the curse. And he thinks he has discovered the one way to get his father home.
Will wants the best for his son, Henry and tells him to return home to his mother. He doesn’t want Henry in any danger and he definitely does not want Henry to search out Jack Sparrow. But Henry is a stubborn and determined young man (hmm….I wonder where he gets that from??)
We have another large time leap to where Henry is a young man, he’s grown and has joined the Navy. The vessel he is serving on is about to sail into the Devil’s Triangle. Well, no one listens to him and instead, they lock him up. But Henry was right, the vessel sailed on and was boarded by Captain Salazar and his menacing crew. The ruthless crew boarded the vessel and killed the crew leaving only Henry alive to deliver a message.
The rest of the movie is filled with adventure, a little humor and a dash of a love story. Henry sets out on a mission to find Captain Jack Sparrow, deliver the message and find Posidean’s Trident to break the curse so his father can come home. We meet a new character, Carina Smith, who becomes Henry’s love interest and also partner in finding the Trident of Posidean. And of course, we find Captian Jack Sparrow in a heap of trouble that Henry will have to help him out of.
The movie is a little over 3 hours long so this one may be tough for younger children to watch. Plus there is a fair amount of violence so it may not be appropriate for young viewers. Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is rated PG13 and after watching it myself and I can assure you it’s for the violence. Peyton watched it and the only thing that scared her was Captian Salazar and his crew, they are a little intense. And as a parent I was not crazy about the scenes with Captian Salazar and his crew, they were pretty dark and intense for young viewers.
Overall, I really enjoyed Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It was full of adventure, mystery, a few laughs and a light love story.
