Factual error: The British Ship of the Line is flying a version of the British Union Jack that was not adopted until 1801. The story is supposed to take place between 1720 and 1750.
Continuity mistake: After Barbossa releases the Black Pearl to her former and rightful glory, when it cuts to Jack and the others running on the beach the closeup and next long shot are flipped shots. Note that even though they're flipped shots Barbossa still has a right wooden leg, thanks to the CGI. (01:23:30)Super Grover
Captain Salazar: Jack Sparrow... Do you know this pirate?
Henry: Only by name.
Captain Salazar: For too many years the Triangle has cursed us, condemned us to this Hell on Earth. The key to our escape is Jack Sparrow, and the compass which he holds. No, no. No need to fear, me boy. I always leave one man alive, to tell the tale. Find Sparrow for me and relay a message, from Captain Salazar.
Captain Salazar: Tell him I'll behold the daylight again. And on that day, death... death comes straight for him. Would you say that to him, please?
Captain Salazar: I wish I could tell him myself, but dead men tell no tales.
Trivia: The ship we see Jack on in Salazar's flashback is called the Wicked Wench. This is a bit of an in-joke for PotC buffs, because that was the original name of the Black Pearl before being sunk by Cutler Beckett and raised again by Davy Jones. It's fully explained in a deleted scene of At World's End.Friso94
