“Mutiny on the Bounty” is a remake of the 1935 Best Picture winner based on the novel of the same name. It tells the story of a ship named the Bounty (obviously) and the new Lieutenant (played by Marlon Brando) who eventually decides to stage a mutiny and take the ship over from the cruel Captain Bligh (played by Trevor Howard). This film ranks high on my dissapointments from this project. I’ve heard great things about the ‘35 version and I look forward to seeing that, but this version was mostly overly long and boring. The first half hour wasn’t too bad, when we see the Captain perform his cruelty on a sailor named John Mills (played by Richard Harris) and the mutiny scene is good but other than that I thought it lagged. This is some of the worst acting I’ve seen from Brando and the rest of the cast isn’t much better. The only exception is Harris who does nice work with his character. Here’s to hoping the original film lives up to its reputation.
