This is by far the best movie version of the classic story about the mutiny on the Bounty. An absolutely top notch cast, with great central performances by Anthony Hopkins and Mel Gibson. Liam Neeson and Daniel Day Lewis are also on board as supporting chararcters. The movie is not fast paced, but does get intense when it needs to be. The cinematography and musical score by the great Vangelis are also terrific. An engrossing historical epic.

Slow, with weak performances

This is an adaptation of "Captain Bligh and Mr. Christian" by Richard Hough. It is an adaptation that made me not want to read the novel of which it is based.

The movie is filled with little action and pretty weak performances from much of the main cast. At times, however, Anthony Hopkins had some good scenes compared to other cast members.

Another problem with this movie is the writing. None of the characters are written well in this adaptation. I also found much of the dialogue real weak, which made the performances suffer.

Mel Gibson is given very little to do, and little dialogue in the first quarter of the movie. At times, he seemed bored. I also think that much of the cast appeared bored -- especially in the scenes on the ship.

The scenes on the ship was another prob...
