I have already seen such topics that took place aboard ships. The best I remember in a grade B picture was a Jean Yarbrough's feature titled THE MUTINEERS, and there were many others, of course. This one doesn't bring anything new or unusual. It remains a good time waster made by the prolific Lambert Hillyer. The tale of the captain of a decrepit cargo who has to face with sort of hoodlums who want him to collaborate with them. All that in order to swindle the insurance company, collect money from the future wrecked ship they all intended to sink.
Usual topic that - I repeat - we have seen before.
Rare material for movie buffs.
Entertaining, but no more.
