About Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Salazar's Revenge
Johnny Depp returns as the swashbuckling, rum-soaked buccaneer Captain Jack Sparrow in the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, six years after the weak fourth, On Stranger Tides. Jack is being pursued by the brilliant Javier Bardem as the ghostly, vengeful and terrifying villain, Captain Salazar and this has all the ingredients for a classic. However, like so many long-running franchises, this one feels somewhat tired, haunted by the spectre of what came before, until in the end it is Depp's reliably electric performance that keeps the franchise afloat.
