An old classic

2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 22 8:30
Honestly, it took me a while before getting into this flick. First of all, I was really bothered by this "White Men burden's" crap and the whole thing was just rather discriminating towards the natives (they are either portrayed as obediant servants or psychotic killers). Still, I was still swept off by the whole thing. It is a rather old fashioned action-adventure flick. Cary Grant is pretty awes... read more

" November 17th At this point in his career, George Stevens had only directed musicals and comedies, thus I believe he was the wrong choice to direct an action/adventure epic. The action sequences themselves in Gunga Din have no suspense or urgency to them, while none of the characters in the movie stood out to me bar Cary Grant who did mange to carry the movie along, well because, he's Cary Grant.

Filmsite's 100 Greatest Film Scenes (102 movies items)

"The greatest rousing adventure tale and film of all-time is George Stevens' classic, based upon Rudyard Kipling's poem of the same name - a tribute to a courageous water carrier (Sam Jaffe) who accompanies British Army veterans in India as they battle against a fanatical, murderous Indian cult in the late nineteenth century. In the film's stirring and poignant ending, Gunga Din - who longs to be a regimental bugler, but has been mortally wounded by a bayonet, gathers all his courage and strength"

An old classic

“Honestly, it took me a while before getting into this flick. First of all, I was really bothered by this "White Men burden's" crap and the whole thing was just rather discriminating towards the natives (they are either portrayed as obediant servants or psychotic killers). Still, I was still swept off by the whole thing. It is a rather old fashioned action-adventure flick. Cary Grant is pretty awesome and you can see the uncanny resemblance with George Clooney. It was one they made action movies back then with some fist fighting, sword fighting, shooting and explosions. It is quite obvious this movie has been a huge influence for many adventure flicks that came afterwards (the first that comes to mind is of course, 'Indiana Jones and the temple of doom'. In my opinion, it is not a great fli” read more

" A delight. They really don't make 'em like this anymore. The inspiration for notable films such as Temple Of Doom and The Man Who Would Be King (another Kipling yarn), this is the adventure film at its best. Cary Grant, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Victor McLaglen are our three swashbuckling heroes of Her Majesty The Queen's Royal Engineers, sent to investigate the loss of contact with a British outpost in colonial India. Upon arrival at this ghost town, the trio witness the mysterious Thuggee "
