Critic Reviews for The Island of Dr. Moreau
feels more like a made-for-television film than a theatrical feature, despite the lush widescreen cinematography and relatively large-scale action sequences,
Less an exercise in stark horror and moody ambience -- the defining traits of the classic 1932 adaptation Island of Lost Souls, starring Charles Laughton as Dr. Moreau -- and more a straightforward adventure yarn with a sci-fi bent.
A quietly durable interpretation of Wells' classic, and a big step up from the Brando version.
Mais uma tentativa fracassada de se adaptar o livro homônimo de H.G. Wells, esta versão traz Burt Lancaster no piloto automático e Michael York pouco convincente como o incrédulo herói.
Audience Reviews for The Island of Dr. Moreau
This movie does have some good creepiness, but overall, the story and acting aren't very good, and the movie is pretty bad. I recommend seeing the 30s version instead.
Enjoyable but dated with that distinctive 70's aura. Michael York seems perfectly cast as a shipwreck survivor who stumbles upon Dr. Moreau (Burt Lancaster) and his little island of horrors.
I struggled with this and varous other remakes. I was never sure of the overall message it was trying to put out. I might have missed it but there you go.
