Commander Jack Sparrow scans for the trident of Poseidon while being sought after by an undead ocean skipper and his group.
Captain Jack Sparrow is pursued by an old rival, Captain Salazar, who along with his crew of ghost pirates has escaped from the Devil's Triangle, and is determined to kill every pirate at sea. Jack seeks the Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that grants its possessor total control over the seas, in order to defeat Salazar.
|nudity||3/10 In his first scene Jack Sparrow is seen drunk and asleep in a safe, a woman inside with him. Her husband is there and, enraged, orders the soldiers to shoot Jack dead. The word "trollop" is used. Pirates mistake the word "horologist" and think that it applies to whores (the word itself is never used). They continue to make veiled references to this. After Carina prepares to swim taking off her dress to her Victorian underwear and dives into the water, Henry excitingly tells Jack that he "saw her ankles". Jack then replies that he "would have seen a lot more if he'd kept his cake-hole shut". The word "knickers" is used. Jack is seen without his pants.|
|violence||7/10 Many scenes involving epic, intense action, fighting and destruction. Jack is seen about to be executed by guillotine; you can see the red blood on the blade, and there is a brief shot of a couple of decapitated heads in a basket, realistic-looking yet not bloody. It is, however, a fairly humorous scene. Salazar and his crew are seen mercilessly killing pirates and English military men many times throughout the film. Their "deaths" in the flashback scene are rather intense. Zombie-like ghost sharks are first shown as grotesquely rotten corpses, flies swarming around them.|
|profanity||3/10 None too crude, a few instances of mild British profanity: 2 uses of "bugger" and 1 "piss off". Plus maybe one or two "bloody", "damn", "hell" and the like. The word "horologist" is mistaken as "whore", and "astrologist" as something to do with donkeys, implying a few uses of "ass". This is played for laughs.|
|alcohol||3/10 Jack Sparrow is seen drinking rum, and is clearly drunk throughout the film, as he is in most scenes in the last four films (perhaps even more drunk than before).|
|frightening||7/10 Several intense action scenes involving destruction and fighting, many deaths. Captain Salazar is possibly the most frightening, intimidating villain in the entire film series, and his men are also scary-looking, some of them missing various body parts, and the ghost sharks are fairly grotesque and could be pretty scary.|
