Reviews

  • Weakest of the 3

    3
    By SheepDog2014
    Having recently watched all three films (1935, 62, and 84) I would have to say that this one comes in at 3 of the 3. This is not to say that it's a bad movie. It's not. It was enjoyable. Just if I were to put them in order of (my personal) preference they would be Brando in 62, Gable/Laughton in 35, and then this one. Although this one may be the most historically accurate, it just wasn't that compelling of a story. The soundtrack by Vangelis made it seem at times that I was watching a vintage episode of Miami Vice. In fact even though I'm a big fan of Mel Gibson this wasn't close to his best work and Don Johnson may have made a better Fletcher Christian (not kidding). The way that Hopkins played Bligh it was difficult to dislike him never mind make him the villain of the story. And maybe that's the weakness of the film. No clear villain as the Blighs of 35 and 62 and no clear heroes as with Clark Gable and Marlon Brando's reluctant anti-hero. The one thing this does have over the other two films is the very accurate portrayal of the Tahitian way of life in the 1700s. very easy to see why the crew of the Bounty was reluctant to leave. Finally, of the three films, this one leaves the story at the earliest point. The end of Bligh's trial in London at the same time as Mutineers landing on Pitcairn Island. All-in-all a good film worth watching. Just not the most entertaining of the lot.
