The other reviewers have provide the synopsis so won't reiterate the story. Do want to mention that all actors do a very good job but Bogie shines in this role. Usually playing tough guys in this role he goes against convention and plays a commander falling apart. Bogart died of cancer 3 years after making this movie and was apparently already ill while filming it. You can definitely see that he is not the robust person he once was and that seems to add to his Capt. Queeg character who is also a tired and run down individual.

The video quality of the DVD is very good, some scenes were as clear as Blu-ray. A must for any Bogart fan, a great actor who was a great actor to the end.

The Caine Mutiny is a great film and featurea one of the best performance of Humphrey Bogart's life. That's high praise considering the quality evident in his body of work but he really delivers the goods in The Caine Mutiny. The film benefits from other strong perfomrances as well. Jose Ferrer, Van Johnson, Fred MacMurray, and others all rise to the level of the unusally intelligent script. The result is a fancinating character study that I would recommend to anyone.
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.

I long ago voted this the best Bogey movie. His portrayal of Lt. Cmdr. Queeg is flawless. Accolades go to the entire cast, in particular Fred MacMurray and Jose Ferrer. The action takes place during the second world war but it is not about the war itself, it is about the Caine and her crew. It would be unfair to add more because those additions would be spoilers. The title itself is evidence of what takes place. One of those worth buying and keeping to watch again and again.......

Since so many Amazon reviews of "The Caine Mutiny" (many of them excellent assessments of this great motion picture) exist already (as of May 2014, when I am writing this), I here would like mostly to praise this film as a very fine, cunningly wrought adaptation to the screen of Herman Wouk's enthralling novel. I read the book a few years ago, long before seeing the movie only recently. Having served for a few years of active duty as an enlisted man in the U.S. Navy, novels and films of this kind are of intense interest to me. The DVD edition which I viewed is one of the four discs in the boxed set of three great war films (plus a bonus disc), "W.W. II, 60th Anniversary Collection" (Sony Films Home Entertainment 11527).

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.

The crew of the USS Caine resents Captain Queeg, who places the blame for a series of blunders and petty infractions on the crew. Such instances include cutting their own target tow-line while Queeg berates a crewman for having his shirt untucked, and later and most famously, interrogating the officers for the apparent stealing of some strawberries.
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.
