Audience Reviews for Jack London

  • Dec 05, 2018
    A typical Hollywood biopic, typically overblown, but undercut by the star, Michael O'Shea, who seems a one note actor whose feet are too small for the part given him (although the attempt is plain to see), which might be why he is not remembered. The focus of the film at the final portion on London's Japanese adventure strain credulity.

    London surely had an exciting life some of which is shown here but leading man O'Shea has the screen charisma of lint and without a compelling center the film just plods along. Susan Hayward, exuding more presence and star quality in her small part than O"Shea ever would is wasted in a nothing part.
