Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge Movie Review

Updated on November 28, 2017


The comedic value of this film was 100%, Depp as Jack Sparrow redeemed himself from the last film which personally I didn’t like that much, it was very funny and more family friendly with a few more adult jokes which keeps parents interested. The plot line for this film was very fresh and different to the other 4 films which was amazing. As well as the original cast from 1,2&3 being brought back in the fresh faces such as Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites and Javier Bardem (who is one of my favourite actors of all time). BARBOSA IS BACK, one of my favourite characters, I loved the how the relationship between Carina and Barbosa is unfolded at the end and is so expectedly unexpected I was jaw-dropped at that scene and in tears, may he RIP. I love that they FINALLY gave us more insight into Jack Sparrow’s backstory and history whilst still being hilarious. I loved the character of Salazar and Bardem did an incredible job of portraying him. And is it just me or Henry Turner (Thwiates) actually looks like a young Will Turner (Bloom) in real life. I thought the casting was amazing. Finally, this film was tied together by the scene at the end with the return of Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightly). In my opinion I don’t particularly like her character but thought it was great they brought her back.

Carina Smyth: I'm not looking for trouble!

Captain Jack Sparrow: What a horrible way to live.


I used to be OBSESSED with Orlando Bloom and he is one of my favourite actors, this really pains me to say this but his acting was honestly rubbish in the film, I don’t know what they’ve done to his voice but it does not sound like him at all, I just didn’t really buy the characters emotion. I do know that Bloom and Knightly had a lot of differences and she didn’t want to come back to the film because he was going to be in it but ultimately decided to do the one scene at the end. This is really the only issue I had with the film other than the obvious fact they’ve tried to replace Orlando and Keira with younger equivalents of themselves, Scodelario and Thwaites.

In the end I loved this film, I think it is very family friendly for children maybe 8/9+ because some graphic scenes but not anything Disney can’t handle. I cannot wait for the 6th film!!
