Italian production of Jack London's well-known, often filmed tale. Gentleman is forced to work in a seal-hunt ship ruled by a tyrannical captain. Violence rules but soon he learns to interact with the captain, just to find a thinking (and ill) man. More violent than the other versions with an incoherent soundtrack from Guido and Maurizio De Angelis. But the story is strong and the film does offer some good moments, holding the interest along. Badman Chuck Connors does well in the title role although it was a too hard task: none could be better in Wolf Larsen's role than Edward G. Robinson who starred the 1941 Hollywoodian version, directed by Michael Curtiz.
