Hawaii, as it happens, is a normal, lively, fairly intelligent ten-ton mouse.
Hill's direction, solid in the intimate dramatic scenes, is as good in crowd shots which rep the major external events.
The conflict between naïve dogma and naïve innocence is effectively established, but the spectacle is always broader than it is deep.
Although the film tells the sadly ironic story of the extinction of one culture upon invasion by another, one comes out of the theater not so much moved as numbed.
The film features a towering performance by Max von Sydow ... although it's Jocelyne LaGarde who nabbed the most praise for her delightful turn.
It cost more than $15 million, and every penny is on the screen.
Hawaii has survived earthquakes, hurricanes and pestilence. It will survive this movie.
[Hill] fights a losing battle to keep the sprawling story in check but, aided by his cast, imbues the piece with the stormy passion that this mammoth production requires.
Turgid, overlong epic has beautiful location scenery and a story with possibilities- organized religion's arrogant assumption that what it believes is right even if it destroys a civilization is right. While it conveys that in many ways something is ultimely missing from the overall film that keeps it from being involving keeping the viewer at a distance. Von Sydow is a fine actor but his Reverend Hale is such a pompous, small minded autocrat that spending over 2 1/2 hours with him is a trial. Julie Andrews is wasted although she does have one good scene near the end.
Interesting to see the effects of over zealous Christians.
