Elizabeth Swann (Knightley), Will Turner (Bloom), Tia (Harris) and the reincarnated Barbossa (Rush) head to Singapore to meet Captain Sao Feng (Chow) in a bid to get his help in recovering Cap’n Jack Sparrow (Depp) from Davy Jones’ (Nighy) locker. But even as they set off, the dastardly Lord Beckett (Hollander) is using Jones’ heart to tighten his grip on the seas, and threatens to eradicate piracy once and for all.
The plot’s a trippy, twisty mess, and it’s far too long, but it looks fantastic and makes some bold choices in its execution. And once again Jack’s back to save the day.
