Story: Henry Turner and Carina Smyth are looking for the Trident of Poseidon. Jack Sparrow could also use it to defeat the evil half-dead man hunting him down for revenge. So they join hands and set sail…

Review: Time and tide wait for none. Not even for the likes of Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem, two supremely talented actors captaining this ambitious finale to the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise. As time runs out and tides become stronger, Bardem and Depp take turns at the wheel, and barely manage to bring the ship to shore.

The movie has the makings of an epic adventure. The VFX is stunning, the actors’ comic timing is impeccable, cinematographer Paul Cameron’s sweeping shots of cramped Caribbean towns and the vast nothingness of sea are impressive, and the pace keeps you hooked.

But Salazar’s Revenge is mainly held back by two common problems of the franchise. 1) The adventures lack the element of surprise; they’re more like road-trips with pre-determined pitstops now (a menacing villain, a curse here or there, a witch guiding the pirates, etc). And 2) The absolute irrelevance of Jack Sparrow to the main plot. Is there another movie that requires so little of its protagonist?

Even in Salazar’s Revenge, Sparrow (Depp) continues to be a charming, drunken pirate who waddles into a quest for the ultimate treasure. Henry’s (Thwaites) quest, to be precise. As Henry tries to find Poseidon’s Trident and free his father (Orlando Bloom in a cameo) from a curse, he runs into Carina (Scodelario), who is also after the Trident as a means to connect with her own estranged father. But the young adventurers need a ship and a captain to take them to the treasure. And that’s the bare minimum Sparrow can do. Sparrow, in turn, is running away from Salazar (Bardem), a half-dead-half-alive ghost-man thirsty for revenge.

The plot twists are too bizarre and yet not too unbelievable. The movie thrives on star-power, cameos and special effects. But the visual treat of a climax will pull the wool over your eyes, and you will buy into the fantasy.

Go on this final voyage. The seas might get a bit rough but the pirates won’t rob you off a good time.
