Fine television rendition about Jack London novel with agreeable interpretations by Bronson and Reeve
30 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

The film narrates about a cocky young(Christopher Reeve)and a beautiful girl(Catherine Mary Stewart)who are shipwrecked and and picked up by a ship called ¨the Ghost¨commanded by captain Larsen(Charles Bronson) a cruel but clever seaman reader of Shakesphere,Nietzsche,Darwin and Milton(Lost time).They convert themselves in accidental passengers confronting wits and taking on brutal sailors (Clive Revell) and only helped by an alcoholic doctor(Len Cariou) and a good marine(Mark Singer).

The picture is a fine television adaptation of a famous novel by Jack London scripted by Andrew J. Fenady(also producer united to Ted Turner). The film has an intelligent characters study,reflecting on the various personages and stunningly playing the tale .Thus,Charles Bronson as the obstinate and brutal captain and obsessed to track down his brother is magnificent.Christopher Reeve(recently deceased)as his contender and with numerous wishes to escape is splendid .Catherine Mary Stewart is enjoyable and enticing.Special mention to support cast, Len Cariou as the kind boozy doctor is excellent and Clive Revell as the nasty cooker who mistreats to Reeve is outstanding. The Black and white classic version novel is the greatest and was directed by Michael Curtiz in 1941 with Edward G. Robinson(Larsen),Alexander Knox(Reeve's role),Ida Lupino(Catherine Stewart's role) and John Garfield(Singer's role). The flick will like to seafaring adventure genre enthusiastic and of course Bronson and Reeve fans. Rating : Well worthwhile seeing.
