During WWII on a small ship ship in the U.S. Pacific fleet an executive officer removes the captain from command that is deemed a mutiny.

Humphrey Bogart anchors this film with a disarming performance of a deteriorating military officer with questionable leadership skills. The film packs quite a dramatic punch, thanks mostly to Bogart's tension-ridden character.

A great little film about power and paranoia. Bogart is excellent as the paranoid captain Queeg and the rest of the cast make this a terrific military (or otherwise) film. It's worth it for the strawberry scene alone.

For anyone who thinks all Humphrey Bogart did was play Humphrey Bogart in every film, you have to see The Caine Mutiny. This is miles away from any other performance Bogart ever gave. Instead of a tough "stick my neck out for no one" personality Bogart is famous for, his Captain Queeg is a neurotic, paranoid fool. Bogart pulls it off flawlessly. The rest of the cast is also stellar, particularly the underrated Fred MacMurray. This is a wonderful film.

"The Caine Mutiny" by Yojimbo

The officers that relieve a veteran naval commander during a WWII mission must justify their actions to a court martial tribunal or face execution. Another courtroom drama based around the twisted morality of war and the command structure, The Caine Mutiny sidesteps the usual dryness associated with legal rhetoric by basing most of the story on board ship amongst a set of interesting, well realised characters. There's little in the way of military action, but the character dynamic works really well, the picks of the bunch being Fred MacMurray as the cynical writer who instigates the insurrection and obviously the brilliant Humphrey Bogart in one of his best performances as the captain who has perhaps served one tour too many and is suffering the psychological damage that results.

Great movie, Tacked on love story aside

A good film with an excellent trial sequence and great scenes on the ship. Some great characters are here in fact all of them except for the main character and his girlfriend. There is a romantic sub plot that is far too tacked on. It is not needed and completely unnecessary for the plot. The ship's politics and characters are far more interesting. They all well drawn and make a fascinating story out of the whole thing. Although one final confrontation almost works all the way it fails just a little bit.

Oscar Nominee Best Actor Humphrey Bogart 5/5- Bogart is great as the Caine's unbalanced captain. His unsettled character is perfectly done by him. The character being just on the edge is well done to the greatest degree. He does not make the character into a standard villain or a cru...
