Alright, how many people were honestly asking for a fifth one of these?

I doubt it was that many!

I guess I don’t need to introduce this franchise as everyone in the world pretty much knows about it! But, I never imagined that we would be getting a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film! Is it good like the first film, ok like the second, or more along the lines of the third and fourth? Let’s take a look at Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

It can be argued that the “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” segment of Disney’s “Fantasia” is the most famous segment of the film. Everyone just enjoys seeing Mickey in his wizard’s hat trying to find the easy way out of doing work by creating chaos of epic proportions!

 Hence, it wasn’t long before someone decided to make a full-length feature film based on that segment. And as you can imagine, the resulting film had nigh NOTHING whatsoever to do with the original segment. But is the film worth ignoring totally? Or can we still find some enjoyment from this wizard’s tale featuring Nicolas Cage? Well, let’s find out!

Making movies based on video games is nothing new. It’s been done in America since “Super Mario Bros.” was released in 1993. Sadly though, that film was not a hit! In 2012, Disney Animation would make a film based on the idea of video games entitled, “Wreck-It Ralph”. Thankfully, this film was a hit!

But this wasn’t Disney’s first time making a film based on video games. Oh no, they’ve done it before. In 2010, for example, they made a live-action adaptation of a popular video game series entitled “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”. So the question is, does this follow the “Wreck-It Ralph” route to greatness or the “Super Mario Bros.” route to badness and forgettability? Well, you’ll just have to wait until the end of the review to find out (*coughs* “Super Mario Bros.” *coughs*).
