Critic Reviews for Island in the Sun
Rossen (Oscar winner for All the King's Men) may not have been the right director for such a juicy and colorful ensemble melodrama, which at the time was considered audacious and controversial due to its handling of interracial relationships.
Daring for its era, but creaky and unintentionally funny today.
Audience Reviews for Island in the Sun
The settings are very beautiful, the cast of fine actors all look gorgeous and perform well but the script is pretty much a dog and just sort of plods along with too many plots lines and too little drama.
