Critic Reviews for Lord Jim
Brooks, while capturing the spirit of adventure of the novel, only superficially catches the inner emotional and spiritual conflict of its hero.
Brooks' adaptation of Conrad's novel is immeasurably better than its reputation.
Something bewildering has happened in Richard Brooks's making of it, and it misses at being either Conrad or sheer entertainment cinema.
Joseph Conrad's elaborately structured fiction poses monstrous problems for film adaptation, and the solution proposed here by Richard Brooks -- plodding literal-mindedness -- doesn't come close to working.
This stunningly exotic film of Conrad's classic features O'Toole in the title role.
Audience Reviews for Lord Jim
A poor man's Bridge on the River Kwai, Lord Jim is a slow paced action pic heavy on pyschological drama. The story itself begs for a remake, but this telling of Joseph Conrad's classic, though beautifully photographed, is ponderously slow and the script is in dire need of a tune up. Clunky as it may be, it still is an interesting watch.
Oh the disgrace, the shame, the despair, to make a man leave his own people and go out to be accepted by others. good movie and a good book as well. You know whats going to happen and yet you cant stop watching.
Colorful but far too long drama with great cast but it has several dull patches.
