This high sea adventure presents a harsh nature leading up to the great, climatic mutiny that was thought to be worth waiting for, but not in a fashion that was expected (and the harshness doesn't stop there). You can still however find some qualities of the winning adventure such as the performances of Gable, Laughton and Tone, and the effects on the operations of handling the ship.
The 1935 Best Picture winner is an adventure to check out if the harshness of Laughton's character won't bring down your spirits like the way he did to his crew. If so, Gable's rebellious character will answer the call. (B)
A lovely adaptation of a great book that was well followed in a way of capturing the storytelling flair and healthy heart and occasional humor, all being expressed with great performances of it's nice cast at their best while under a hard topic of a romantic tale diagnosed with cancer that makes this sad. A wonderful must-see, but reading the book first is a requirement. (B+)
