The Sand Pebbles Reviews

Steve McQueen gives a dominant performance in Robert Wise's ambitious but flawed period drama, which offers interesting parallels to the US involvment in Vietnam.

The drama wavers between being compelling and reaching too far for greater historical significance, that it loses its bearings.

Underrated Robert Wise classic starring McQueen in his finest acting role.

A fine old-school picture...elevated further by its progressive themes. [Blu-Ray]

Steve McQueen is great, and Candace Bergen is breathtakingly beautiful.

The total effect of Sand Pebbles is uneven though gripping most of the way.
