Movie Reviews

Not for the kids!
Midge | The Heartland | 05/18/2002
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The movie stars Kirk Douglas and is based on a book by Jules Verne, but parents expecting another 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA will be in for a surprise. It is very violent and includes things like torture and a gang-rape that are totally inappropriate for kids. Adults will find a well-acted but slow moving adventure story. The scenery is beautiful but the movie has a low budget look and feel. And the DVD has no bonus features, not even the theatrical trailer. Pricey for a DVD with no bells and whistles."
Very Entertaining

"Highly enjoyable movie in which Kirk Douglas is a lighthouse keeper on an island at the tip of South America. Yul Brynner plays a blood thirsty Pirate who eventually hunts Kirk Douglas down at this deserted outpost. Very Entertaining tale in which finally, a pirate movie where they arnt all singing and dancing."
I had childhood nightmares for years afterwards....

"I somehow got dropped off at the theatre in 1971 as a 9 year old boy and saw this film, which gave me really vivid nightmares for years afterwards. Somday I'll see it again as a 40-something for therapy. That fat bald giant trying to kill that cute little monkey was too much. Parents beware!"
A high seas adventure that needs more attention.UNDERRATED!!

"I loved this movie as a kid.And still like it today.Although i do agree with a previous reviewer that it might not be suitable for kids.But i think a lot of adults who like an adventure with a great setting and excellent acting by the likes of Yul Brynner, Kirk Douglas,and Samantha Eggar will love this DVD.Its A little pricy but it does contain a fairly decent transfer to DVD with no apparent age defects,blemishes etc.And has quite a clear crisp picture on DVD.However there are no sepcial features.But highly entertaining and colourful nonetheless.With great performances.A worthwhile view, and for fans of Yul and Kirk.A gem for your DVD collection. Cheers!"
