    As a British naval pic I'd place it below "Master And Commander" and "Hornblower" and quite a ways above any of the Bountys. It profits from an intelligent, insightful screenplay by Edmund H. North and Nigel Kneale that doesn't fall into the Silliphant or Carl Foreman trap of taking itself too seriously. And as usual with the Brits the acting's superb, with Guiness, Anthony Quayle, Tom Bell, and especially Dirk Bogarde in the Capt. Bligh role in top form. Lewis Gilbert's sometimes plodding, (i.e. repetitive scenes of disgruntled mutineers plotting) visually standard direction is not up to the writing or acting (although the battle and other action scenes are well handled) but taken all in all there are lots worse ways to pass an hour and forty minutes of your time. Give it a B.

  • very good movie!

    I saw this movie on TCM two night ago. It was on early in the morning and when I woke up to get a drink of water, I turned on my TV and watched the move till the end. The next morning I watched the whole movie.I enjoyed it much better the Mutiny On The Bounty. Bogard is a sadistic bastard while Guiness is brilliant as the sympathetic captain.This is a must see.
