Underrated remake...
13 January 2008 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Terrific film, a remake of 1930's "Outward Bound", has a disparate group of people (John Garfield, Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet and Eleanor Parker among them) on-board a mysterious ocean-liner, unaware they are actually souls being transported to their final destinations. Solemn fantasy is talky, sometimes heavy, but extremely well-acted and occasionally fascinating. Garfield's moment of reckoning is an amazing bit of dramatic acting, and director Edward Blatt is both subtle and sneaky with this fantastic material (it's a very classy product with no camp overtones). It unfolds slowly, but viewers who stick with it will find this a memorable melodrama. *** from ****
