Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: ...Marlon Brando makes Fletcher Christian an eccentric who dominates the entire dramatic scheme.
Brando as usual chews the scenery
The Clark Gable & Charles Laughton version is superior to this one. I never felt the tension between Brando & Howard that Gable & Laughton displayed. This movie lacks something, what I can't put my finger on
Mutiny date is incorrect
Note that the description of the mutiny date is incorrect. The correct date is 1789.
