Storyline

The biopic depicts Flynn's roust-about early life in Australia, before he became an internationally famed celebrity. In those days he was an adventurer, opium smuggler, gambler, street fighter, womanizer, and gold prospector. The film, based on Flynn's early autobiography "Beam Ends," was written for the screen by Large and Luke Flynn, who found the inspiration as a result of their travels through Australia in the footsteps of Luke's iconic grandfather. Film production will start next July in Australia with a budget of $12 million. The book's title refers to the last visible sign before a ship sinks.

Trivia

The closing titles mention the term "In like Flynn" but do not give the context. Errol Flynn was able to charm his way into and out of any situation and he had a reputation for being extremely good at it. To be in like Flynn meant to be totally assured of success.

In the 1960s, this expression evolved into an actual movie character, Derek Flint, in the spy spoof films Our Man Flint (1966) and In Like Flint (1967). See more »

Errol Flynn For The Win...Well, Maybe Next Time.
10 January 2019 | by FinesseMovieReviewsSee all my reviews

This film follows a well known Australian, Errol Flynn, and tells the story of how this adventurous man discovered the cinema screen.

After escaping from a jungle exploration, Flynn decides to steal a ship from a Japanese pirate and assemble his friends. Flynn and the crew will sail the seas in hopes to finding New Guinea Gold.

With an opening sequence that can be compared to Raiders of the Lost Ark, we understand that Flynn is a man who loves a great adventure and really loves women (seriously- the amount of women Flynn goes for is crazy!). Other than that, there's very little to no development for our leading hero. Flynn is also surrounded by his friends, but once again there is no character development for them, which in return gives the audience zero desire to care. Without these characters being built correctly, the film continues on with a story of little interest. The one character that does try to open up about his past is given such a poor introduction that when he gets deep in discussion, I didn't feel anything emotionally.

The film's costume design and sets are amazing and it's obvious for an Australian film that much attention and focus has been given to provide a top looking Australian adventure film for 2018.

As for the plot, like the film characters... there's not much here other than Flynn being keen to sail with his friends for gold- that's really it. The film spends a large majority of time on trying to make consistently cheesy jokes for its audience rather than tell an exciting story. Considering our leads are in a hurry for treasure, there is also plenty of time for the film to take a moment and make jokes, fight a boxing match or even play on the beach instead. Many jokes are also dragged on, and the worst part is that the jokes don't actually land and cause a laugh (well, for me anyway). By the 3rd and final act the jokes disappear and we are then given a dramatic film instead.

Overall, In Like Flynn tries to be the next adventurous Australian blockbuster but instead gets cheesy dialogue and poor character developments, which in return hurts the film story like a sinking pirate ship. I feel there was so much potential but sadly I found the end result to be a complete misfire and a disappointment.

2.6/10
