A High Wind in Jamaica Reviews

  • Sep 24, 2019

    This may be the best of the pirate movies. It's one of the few with depth and some measure of realism. It's also a movie about children - although it may frighten some - and what they know and don't know. According to legend, the "High Wind" novel inspired "Lord of the Flies." Coen brothers, where are you? This movie deserves a remake and a larger audience.

    Very entertaining and well produced pirate movie, fine cinematography, sets and costumes. The cast is terrific and Anthony Quinn is well cast. Enjoyable.

    This is a pretty interesting flick. Pirates on the high seas, the British Navy. Interesting character interaction with the children. Sometimes amusing, often tragic, this is a well crafted film. It's interesting to see Coburn in an early role.

    Toute la valeur de ce film tient dans son inquietante etrangete. Dejouant les pieges de la fable philo sur la cruaute des enfants mais aussi les ecueils de la serie B d'epouvante, le film parle d'un groupe d'enfants embarques par megarde sur un navire de pirates. Un vrai film sauvage. Un OFNI.
