Having served on Ammunition Ships in Vietnam, and knowing of actual ship explosions during World War II and Vietnam. An bomb placed in the Main Magazine of ship would have cause a catastrophic explosion engulfing the entire ship. Not a series of explosions as depicted. See more »
Can`t say I was too blown away by this movie . The main problem I have is with the main villain Fleischer . Being set long before 1933 he`s not the goose stepping " ve haff vays of making you talk pig-dog " Nazi villain of WW2 war films but he`s the next worst thing - A fat stupid slob who tries to shoot everyone while calling them a " Schwienhund " . This stereotypical characterisation isn`t helped by the OTT performance of Reinhard Kolldehoff
I don`t know if it`s the fault of the BBC using an old print of the film but the editing is haphazard and all over the place like the scene on the reef which seems more like a random series of camera shots rather a scene , and you really do get the feeling ( At least with the version the BBC showed tonight ) that whole chunks of the film are missing . How else would Fleischer be able to describe Sebastian as " The Englishman " when they`ve never met . There`s no way Fleischer would know Sebastian was English
Another thing that annoyed me was the laughably unconvincing crocodile . How bad was it ? Well it looked like a man dressed up , that`s how bad it was . In fact as it approached Flynn I expected Sebastian to jump out of the crocodile costume and say " Trick or treat ? "
One last point . Why is this movie called SHOUT AT THE DEVIL ?
