Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

"You're seeing what was a really cool collaboration between Johnny and I", he shared. "It was a Disney ride and you got paid for it".

Doubtless the latest Pirates of the Caribbean will be a box office success, but at what cost?

The fifth instalment of the "Pirates Of The Carribean" franchise will be known as "Pirates Of The Carribean: Salazar's Revenge" in India, Asia, Russia and Europe and "Pirates Of The Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" in the US. The relationship between Henry and Carina is reminiscent of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, a plot involving a race for treasure is nearly a genre mandatory, and even the film being too long should be no surprise.

Harry (Brenton Thwaites) is the son of previous chiselled hero Will (Orlando Bloom). Only by locating the magical Trident of Poseidon can Thwaites break the curse and return his papa to terra firma. There's a potential hanging, cursed fathers, murderous sailor ghosts, a spunky brown-haired girl determined to go on adventure, Barbossa, a spunky young man with series father issues and an insane amount of determination, and, as always, Captain Jack.

"As long as the audience wants to come, we'll be there, and Johnny wants to make it and Disney wants to finance it". This may have you questioning whether you should check out the movie this weekend or not.

Pros: New directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg ("Kon Tiki") keep the pace tighter, the tale more seafaring and the visuals more interesting than in the last few (almost unendurable) installments. The Pirates love of a Heath Robinson-influenced set is fun - one scene where Sparrow is about to have his head lopped off by a guillotine is both inventive and amusing.

Even though we only get a little taste of McCartney in Pirates 5, it's good to see him in the film, and hopefully he'll be in more movies and TV shows down the line. "I hope people enjoy the movie at the theatres", Arshad said at the special screening of the film here on Thursday. While Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean has opened to good response at the United States box office, R-Rated comedy-drama Baywatch had a surprisingly low opening.
