Critic Reviews for Outcast of the Islands
Audience Reviews for Outcast of the Islands
Trevor Howard is terrific in the anti-hero role, but the rest of the cast is blah. Wendy Hiller is a fine actress, but here her talents are wasted in a very small role. The drama is something you can sink your teeth into, but Reed's direction is lackluster, especially coming off of The Third Man. There are a few noteworthy scenes, the rest of it doesn't seem to have much heart or thought in it. Also, it's rife with lousy rear projection.
Unfortunately I don't remember it very well. But I do recall to have left the theater with the same smile as the one I had reading my first Conrad novel.
