5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent motion picture. April 26 2001
Format:VHS Tape
When the news broke that MGM had the audacity to remake the hallowed 1935 classic "Mutiny on the Bounty" starring Clark Gable and Charles Laughton, the critics were aghast. As the news leaked out about trouble in production, they whipped themselves into a self-righteous frenzy. Brando was a lightening rod for criticism because he was renowned as arrogant hothead. Compared with Gable, who was universally loved and adored, Brando was a boor. It was almost sacrilegious to put Brando in any part Gable had played. When the film opened, it never had a chance. It was ripped to shreds. Brando was ridiculed as a lower class character actor who couldn't step up to the part, and derided for his dreadful attempt at an English accent. The film was a box office loser and critics smugly declared they told us so.
The film was beset by problems throughout production. The full-scale replica of the Bounty arrived on location two months after the film was scheduled to begin shooting. There were three deaths among the film's personnel and the film ran well over budget. The biggest problems were the result of Brando's constant temper tantrums as he tried to rewrite the entire film from the set. At least six writers came and went. After countless confrontations, director Carol Reed gave up and quit to be replaced by Lewis Milestone ("All Quiet on the Western Front'). Milestone was an utterly intractable director that Brando couldn't bully. The result was a battle between the immovable object and the irresistible force, with daily emotional pyrotechnics that further delayed the film. Although Milestone usually prevailed in the fracases, this film turned out to be his last in a 37-year career.

5.0 out of 5 stars old favorite April 29 2013
By Mikey
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It was nice to see this movie again, after some 40 years.
This was the movie that enticed me to join the Merchant Navy as an engineer officer on the cruise ships back in the late 60,s
I wanted to go to Tahiti, like Marlon Brando.
I did, and I was disappointed, it was very colonial " French ' dirty and stank.
Better in the Bounties time I guess, today I assume it is very nice...................
But The movie is a remember thing for me..
It was as good today as it was when I first saw it. NOSTALGA !........

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film Jan. 9 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ce film est excellent et il est très intéressant de le comparer aux deux autres versions de la même histoire.
Les trois versions ont des qualités différentes et elles prennent toutes des libertés avec la réalité historique,ce qui ne nuit pas vraiment et n'empêche pas de les apprécier toutes les trois.

Format:VHS Tape
This remake of the 1935 classic is a much-maligned film, although it's certainly worth checking out. Part of the problem is Marlon Brando's oddly mannered performance (and horrible attempt at a British accent!), but by the film's end Brando will grow on you... in fact, there's a dramatic payoff to his icy aloofness. What the film's critics are really rebelling against is the refashioning of what many consider a perfect movie. With typical '60s relativism, the story's heroic aspects are undercut by a much darker and complex plotline... Trevor Howard's Captain Bligh remains, like Laughton's, a greedy and cruel man, but in this version he is much more sympathetic. Here, Bligh is needled and derided by first mate Fletcher Christian, an aristocratic fop who looks down his nose at his rigid, uptight commander. Brando's character is also a breezy dilletante ultimately driven to act on the sailor's behalf as much by his rivalry with Bligh as by any moral concerns. The sailors see this situation and, as Bligh's repressive behavior comes to a boil, they cynically exploit Christian's hatred of the captain to push him, unwillingly, to lead the mutiny. The ending of the film is markedly different, as well, and for anyone willing to entertain this story's historical value, the new view of Pitcairn Island is worth checking out. The long interlude on Tahiti, though a bit racist and tinged by a dated, Hugh Hefner-y sense of naughtiness, is also quite compelling... It also includes some nice, reasonably authentic Polynesian dancing, and a compelling scene where Brando meets his non-English speaking bride. Of the two films, this one feels much more real, with rich details that go beyond the original story of right and wrong. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Movie Nov. 21 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I did see this movie in the 60's in Austria,this year in July we went on a holiday to Halifax,Nova Scotia Canada,where the Tall Ship Festival was held,and guess what,we actually stepped onto the HMS Bounty and admired it,we saw the crew members
and it was a great experience,it also had a sign there that this was the ship used in that movie.Since that accident of the Bounty,my heart felt pain,the tragic loss of 2 lives realy hurt me.i had to get those movies,because I collect such masterpieces
for my collection of the greatest movies of all times

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing in commun with the true story March 7 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Even if this is a very good movie, even if Marlon Brando's Fletcher Christian and Trevor Howard's William Bligh are convincing and very well played, sadly, this movie has almost nothing in commun with the true story.

First thing, Bligh didn't decide to try to Cape Horn route midway thrue the Atlantic crossing, it was planned from the start.
Secondly, Bligh knew Fletcher Christian before the Bounty voyage, in fact, he had sailed with him before and even wished him on board. William Bligh treated his men as well as any Captain in the 1790's maybe even better, having learned from the Great James Cook himself.

The actual mutiny sequence has nothing, but absolutly nothing remotely to do with how it happened. Fletcher Christian, along with 3 other sailors, stormed Bligh sleeping quaters early in the morning and tied his hands behind his back. It was NEVER in reaction to Bligh refusing to give water to a dying sailor. The worst part in my opinion is last 15 minutes of the movie. Completely delirious stuff.

So, if you want to see a good movie, great, you can watch "Mutiny on the Bounty", but be aware that it has nothing to do with the true story. For that, may I recommend Caroline Alexander book "The Bounty: The True Story of the Mutiny on the Bounty".

2.0 out of 5 stars Really not as good as the original
I know that this will upset many, but this part just was not well suited for Marlon Brando... 2 stars... Sorry

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!
I was worried because their pricing was lower than the other stores. I didn't need to worry. Normal packaging, normal disc, played perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but Fabulous!
Yes, I've heard all the detractors. Brando was poor, it's not historically accurate, they didn't like the ending and on and on.
It's a movie. Read more

Yeah, yeah I've read all the negative reviews on this film for years. There are a lot of historical accuracies in this version not present in the original. Read more

Leaving aside the question of which of the three "Bounties" is the best, the most dominant feature of this version, to me, is Brando's laughable Fletcher C. Read more
