As good as the movie is, however, the transfer to DVD is about the worst I've ever seen. The moment the movie started, I was stunned by how much noise was evident. I wasn't looking for it or analyzing the picture, it jumped out because it was so extreme. Every face, every object, every thing was literally swimming with digital noise. And the sound is as bad or worse. No effort was made to re-master the soundtrack to even rudimentary surround sound making this the first movie I've seen in years to be presented in basic stereo. In addition, the sound is flat throughout, with even big explosions lacking punch.
The Caine Mutiny is a classic film and deserves much better treatment from the studio. As a movie, I would give it 5 stars but I deduct one for the extraordinarily poor picture and sound quality of the DVD.
The mutiny results when, in a life-threatening storm, Queeg freezes up and does not give the order that would save the ship. At that point he is relieved of command by Van Johnson.
Later at the court-marshall Johnson is defended by Mel Ferrer and prosecuted by EG Marshall. But was Queeg torpedoed by the crew with insubordination and lack of respect, or did Queeg go off the deep end? Queeg's paranoia comes out in full force, complete with marbles.
Based on Herman Wouk's best-selling Pulitzer-winning novel, the movie arguably has Bogart's best performance which was one of seven oscar nominations. Look for Claude Akins and Lee Marvin in small roles. Only the unnecessary love-story between a new ensign and his girlfriend detracts from the otherwise intriguing story.
The film very wisely limits its adaptation to the core of the novel, from the graduation of Ensign Willie Keith (played by Robert Charles Francis) from training at a reserve officer training programme to the conclusion of the military tribunal that results in the U.S. Navy's reluctant condemnation of the skipper of the Caine (a destroyer/mine sweeper), Lt. Cdr. Philip Francis Queeg (played by Humphrey Bogart) and the consequent vindication of the ship's executive officer, Lt. Steve Maryk (acted by Van Johson), who during the severe duress of a typhoon at sea, relieves Queeg of his command of the Caine, which Queeg's appallingly bad seamanship and lack of sound judgment put into danger.
Anyone who has never been through such dangerous weather at sea on such a small vessel can only imagine how arduous it is for a ship and its crew to survive it.Read more ›

This is Boart at his best. He makes this move. It's timeless. You can go back and watch it again and again. A must for any film collection.Published on Jan. 31 2014 by Ernie Rideough

I would have to say I would agree with the reviewer from 12/9/03: Why is this DVD so pricey? It has no extra features, it is an average film, turgid in spots, but--it does have... Read morePublished on Dec 14 2003 by Harvey M. Canter
