British hunter Thorndike vacationing in Bavaria has Hitler in his gun sight. He is captured, beaten, left for dead, and escapes back to London where he is hounded by German agents and aided by a young woman.
Somewhere in the 18th century Great Britain, noble but penniless young boy John Mohune is sent by his dying mother to Moonfleet, to put himself under the protection of a certain Jeremy Fox. The boy discovers that Fox is both a former lover of his mother and the leader of a gang of buccaneers. A strange friendship grows as their adventures go on. Written by
Right at the beginning of the film, when the little boy comes to, there's a shot where we can see the people surrounding him (as seen by the boy). But judging by the boy's place on the table in the next shot, he should be looking at the people upside down. See more »
This movie is geared for those who are 10 and up and who have a desire for adventure in their soul.Moonfleet will provide an evening of entertainment. Stewart Granger is the only real actor in this film. Jon Whiteley is not very good, however, he is very young so I suppose he did OK of a job. The mood and sets of Moonfleet were dark and mysterious, helping to add to the atmosphere of the movie. The movie's pace is a little slow. I expected more action in this movie. The supporting actors were OK but nothing to write home about. Enjoy your popcorn for in this movie you will be able to eat it in peace. I give this movie four thumbs up out of 10. Enjoy.
