Upbeat Tone Gives Some Life to Routine Characters & Situations
6 July 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is an adventure tale with an upbeat tone that makes up in part for its mostly routine characters and situations. The setting is reasonably interesting, and the story has enough to keep the viewer's attention most of the time.

George Houston is "Wallaby Jim", the charismatic leader of a group of tough seamen searching for pearls in the South Pacific. His trusted associate Norman has put the whole operation in jeopardy with his gambling problem, even as Jim's crew has uncovered a potentially rich source of pearls. Jim's unscrupulous rival Richter decides that the time is right to move in and take over. It gets melodramatic, and largely predictable, but rarely dull - there is a bit of everything: fighting, romance, singing, and comic relief. It doesn't always fit together, but it holds your attention most of the time.

While there's nothing noteworthy here, it's all watchable and not bad as light entertainment.
