The original Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, was a surprising film. Nobody knew quite what to expect from a movie that took its inspiration from a theme park ride, but the movie was a hit with critics and audiences, so much so that it spawned its own franchise. Many people believe the sequels lost a lot of the magic that the first film created. They start out mediocre with Dead Man's Chest and slowly roll downhill into a bigger mess with On Stranger Tides.

Now, we're about to get ourselves a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie with Dead Men Tell No Tales. Those of us who love the first movie are desperately hoping that the new one will be the return to form that we've been hoping for ever since the original film thrilled us. In order to do that, the fifth pirates' movie will have to avoid making the mistakes the previous sequels have. Here's what the new movie needs to avoid.

Overly Complex Plots

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is a fine enough film. It's not great, but it doesn't do anything particularly wrong. It sets up a solid trilogy finale with pirates fighting for their very existence as the East India Company has control over Davy Jones. If that was all that At World's End did, it might have been ok. Instead, it introduces a bunch of new plot details, like sea gods and pirate lords and gets bogged down in every character trying to double cross every other. It gets absolutely ridiculous and it needs a nearly three-hour runtime just to sort it all out. That's crap. Keep it simple, keep it fun. Hoperfully, that's what Dead Men Tell No Tales will do.
