Dayton Ka'ne sizzles the screen! Hurricane special effects

"In my opinion, Dayton Ka'ne is the star attraction of this film. Beautiful Cinematography, where the movie was filmed completly on location on the island of Bora Bora.
Cast also includes, Mia Farrow, Jason Robards, Max Von Sydow, Timothy Bottoms, James Keach, Trevor Howard, Ariirau Tekurarere and Manu Tupou.
I felt that Mia Farrow was miscast in this film. Although I do know people liked her in the tv serial, "Peyton Place" and the film, Rosemary's Baby (1968).
Dayton Ka'ne sizzles the screen and his acting is honest, smooth and natural. His love scenes are tender and passionate. Those honey-colored eyes!
His dancing will have you begging for more. The ceremonial dance sequences are very captivating. The Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Dorothy Lamour, Road To...movies were never like this.On the Road With Bob Hope and Bing Crosby Collection (Road to Singapore/Road to Zanzibar/Road to Morocco/Road to Utopia).
Dorothy Lamour was in the original movie, The Hurricane [Jon Hall and Dorothy Lamour].
What is missing from this story is how Charlotte was able to obtain a connection to Matangi for it to become romantic so quickly. Perhaps a few more reaction shots is what we needed.
The special effects of the hurricane will hold your attention.
Dayton Ka'ne did one more film completed in 1979. BEYOND THE REEF (1981,) aka SHARK BOY OF BORA BORA and SEA KILLER, also produced by Dino De Laurentiis.
The VHS version is in standard full screen. Released by Paramount Pictures.
Hurricane (1979) is also available on DVD."

"I first saw this movie about 7 years ago and totally fell for it. The love between Mia Farrow and Dayton Kahe was unbelievable. It was extremely romantic. The last 30 minutes of the movie, to say the least, are edge-of-your-seat excitement! Just a great movie to sit and watch on a rainy saturday night alone or with your mate. I've probably seen it 9 times or more and love it more each time I watch it. There's no doubt . . . you'll love it. Enjoy!!!"
Love among the Ruins

"A remake of 30's classic - this was panned on release and was considered a flop on release in 1979, but it arrived when the genre was already in the death throes with big flops like Beyond The Poseidon Adventure and Meteor.
As a reminder of those big 70's disaster movies this is a standout...with unbelievable special effects for the time.
However the first half of the film concerns itself with the romance between Mia Farrow and handsome island boy Dayton Ka'ne...which is beautifully photographed and believable some of the criticism at the time was that it was just too long and dull before the real special effects start. However in the tradition of any great romance there is the angry father, the tribal dances, a trial a scorned navy captain etc etc.
A must have for fans of the 'disaster genre' like me with wonderful special effects and one of the most beautiful movie scores I have ever heard."
One of Mia Farrows best films!!Now on DVD!!!
