Audience Reviews for Pool of London


a very good thriller about two sailors, a cocky american and his jamaican buddy, who inadvertently get involved in a diamond heist and can't find a clean way out. the film had trouble with u.s. censors for portraying a romantic relationship between the black sailor and a young white londoner. its' exploration of race relations is far ahead of its' time
