Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Plot hole: During the execution scene when Carina is on the gallows with a noose around her neck, the plot depends on Henry being able to get to her before she is dropped through the trap door. However, there is so much slack in the hanging rope that during the chaotic fighting, when Carina is left unattended, she could easily have stepped off the small trap door and onto the solid flooring that is inches away. Instead, she continues standing there, waiting to be rescued.

Suggested correction: That's not a mistake or plot hole. Sure it would have been wise of her to step aside, but not doing so isn't a mistake. In all the chaos, she could have been frozen, taking in everything that was going on around her & simply just didn't think to step away. Could happen to anyone in that situation.

New this month Plot hole: In this movie, it's established that Salazar is released because Jack gave away the compass. But in the second movie, he gave it to Will and Elizabeth, and in the third movie to Cutler Beckett. Wouldn't it have freed Salazar then too?
