Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It is superlatively thrilling.
Fresh: There's nothing to stand in the way of Mutiny qualifying for box office dynamite rating.
Fresh: The story is spellbinding, the acting lusty and the spectacle everything you could expect from a Golden Age MGM production -- though sometimes it's a bit too much on the monumental side.
Fresh: The case of the crew against the insane cruelty and avariciousness of Capt. Bligh is so powerfully presented that the injustice done to the men gets under one's skin to stir up a variety of emotion.
Old but good
A classic sea adventure with great performances from Clark Gable and especially Charles Laughton. Satisfying, thrilling, and old but great.
The Best Mutiny on the Bounty Movie
I realize it's 75 years old, but it is the true classic. Gable & Laughton are the perfect foils to each other.
Great acting; truly a classic
Laughton is at his best in Bounty. His performance is top notch. Definitely worth the rental. You don't have to think twice about seeing this movie.
