Javier Bardem on how to 'create a human being behind a monster'

This is more than just another character to him.

The first Pirates of the Caribbean film, The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), unexpectedly struck gold at the box office, and spawned a series of unimpressive sequels.

Gulshan Grover attends the premiere of Hollywood film "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" in Mumbai on May 25, 2017. Javier Bardem, Brenton, Henry are also playing other vital roles in the flick. The race to find the Trident of Poseidon is on, with happily, richly retired Captain Hector Barbossa (Rush) dragged into a find-or-death bargain with the vengeful, hateful Salazar. It's possible it does too much too fast, but at this point in the series I find that infinitely preferable to its previous tendency to do nothing at all.

The young Jack Sparrow looks familiar, doesn't he? A young couple named Henry Turner & Carina Smyth (swashbuckling Brendon Thwaites & Kata Scodelario) who are united by a quest.

The bad guy this time is Javier Bardem as a ghost ship captain and he proves to be an extraordinary actor because he comes across as a very believable ghost ship captain. He is seeking revenge for being cursed thanks to Jack Sparrow, and is determined to end Sparrow's life. The action and impressive use of CGI redeemed the film and at least put it on a higher level compared to "On Stranger Tides".

Depp, who's had a tough year in the headlines thanks to an acrimonious divorce from wife Amber Heard, as well as claims and counter claims about his behavior and lavish lifestyle, sat out media interviews for the film in Los Angeles. This may have you questioning whether you should check out the movie this weekend or not.

Even Tell No Tales' flaws aren't original to this film.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth movie in Disney's long-running film franchise, was being prepped way back in 2013.
