I have never watched it so i cant say. I would stick to more age appropriate movies especially if he is easily frightened.
I have a sensitive 5 year old too, and I wouldn't allow her to watch it yet. while there are slightly scary parts in disney movies and such, they're animated so not as realistic. because Goonies is live action, it's more frightening. the scenes with the disabled brother, as well as the skeleton and some other surprises, will keep it on our "do not watch" list until she's at least 7. she's just not ready for it yet. but every kid is different, and I can imagine my youngest will be okay to watch it at 5, she's more rough and tumble and isn't quite as empathetic.
