This film can be enjoyed on many levels. Its a great "shoot em up and the good guys win" type war movie with pretty good models and special effects for 1960. The problem for the writer and director is how to make a film about a guy in a bunker moving toy boats around a map seem interesting. Kenneth More as Capt John Shepard is locked in bunker with no sense of time or even what day it is, Fortunately he has the enticing Dana Winter by his side. Yet at no time do we feel a disconnect between this claustrophobic environment and a cat and mouse battle on the high seas. The true story of the Bismark is the stuff of legends so fortunately telling it as accurately as possible will be a great film in any case. I have seen Kenneth More in many many films. I shed a tear when he died. He is one of the great "every man" figures of British Cinema along with John Mills and can and has played every role from a leader of men to the most humble. His triumph in the bunker is not only sinking the Bismark and helping save Britain in the battle of the Atlantic, but reconnecting with his humanity in the shadow of personal tragedy. I think this is his best performance ever. The other filmic device of note is the use of the American radio reporter. In characteristically British fashion, the filmmakers eschew having the british tell us how brave they are and how much the loss of HMS Hood means to the Empire, but does so through this and other reporters around the world. The American reporter acts as a greek chorus in this setting. A remarkable film which by its seamless use of war footage, radio and other reports from the outside world is actually an early post modern masterpiece.
You always hurt the one you love - how quickly can one get entangled in their own web of lies. A film I can watch over and over again.A poor boy with cultural aspirations ends up hanging out with some horrid, vacuous selfish rich kids and Italy as is prepared to kill to stay there
Someone in Foxtel programming seems to know this film is right in the Zeitgeist. The Madhi is some islamic loon in the desert who wants to unit all islam under his leadership and have all muslims worship him as the muslim messiah. If they don't he will kill them. It is in my humble opinion Lawrence Olivier's best on screen performance, his body language and facial expressions,eye movements and contact perfectly portray a megalomaniac psychopath Great big budget big screen epic which resonates in today's current political climate. A film which I will never tire of re watching
This film made a lot of money. I thought it was ok. For all my face book friends I have been blocked for 30 days (probably about 20 left) for REPOSTING an image already on facebook about mutlilated corposes by terrorists. I had posted other similar images but the corpse had naked breasts. Some tool complained. Facebook don't even reply to my explanation. I have moved to google plus. I suggest we all abandon facebook for google + - its actually better
Not quite as good as the original (remakes rarely are) but still pretty good. If anything the relationship between Carrie and her mother is better explored than in the original and of course the finale is more over the top in terms of effects, action replays, face book bullying, nasty videos etc. Great performacences by the gal who plays Carrie and the woman who plays her mother. If you loved the original you will love this too
