Critic Reviews for A High Wind in Jamaica

All Critics (3)

A rarely seen gem that has slipped by the public unnoticed, though receiving great reviews.

Jan 6, 2015 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

[It is] a criminally underappreciated movie that may be seen through the eyes of a child but is not scared to see the world as the cruel and confusing place it sometimes is.

Jun 25, 2012 | Rating: 72/100 | Full Review…

What might have happened to the Lost Boys if they'd left Neverland and taken up with the pirates.
