Intense drama starring just Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune as American and Japanese naval officers, respectively, who are both stranded on the same jungle-like island in the pacific, akin to Lord Of The Flies. After the beautiful opening shot, the film is rather hit and miss for me, especially the abrupt ending. The two leads are fine, the cinematography gorgeous, but the story is a bit muddled.

"A great movie which has 2 enemies (a Japanese and an American soldier) who have to put their differences aside and try and survive on an unknown island during the war in the Pacific. Excellent performances by Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune. The movie is spoiled by a rather poor ending. It's like the director didn't have an idea on how to end the movie. Still barring that minor gripe it's a movie that's worth watching."

"Japanilainen ja amerikkalainen sotilas ovat eristyksissä samalla autiosaarella. Pojat vähän kujeilevat ja kisailevat siellä keskenään. Marvin esimerkiksi kusee Mifunen päälle yhdessä kohtauksessa. Ihan hupaisaa katsottavaa sinänsä, mutta jotenkin tästä olisi toiminut enemmän henkilöiden ja heidän vuorovaikutustensa toistensa kanssa ja sen kehittymisen analysointia kuin pintapuolista perseilyä (jossa hahmojen toimet eivät aina kovin loogisilta tunnu), vaikka loppua kohden sillä"

"25.4. Toshiro Mifune juoksee karkuun simpukkaa syöden, ja Lee Marvin jahtaa häntä mielipuolisesti huutaen. Sitten miehet riipaisevat kunnon kännit. Sitä yhtä juttua, jota odotitte minulta, en aio sanoa."

"3.4. Kahden todellisen karismajärkäleen keskenään tähdittämä sotafilmi autiolla saarella ei millään luonnonlaeilla voi olla huono, etenkään Marvinin ja Mifunen ollessa kyseessä. Herrat pitävät pelkällä mukanaolollaan huolta siitä, ettei tylsää ehdi tulla hetkeksikään, vaikkei teos erityisemmin puhutellut pintaa syvemmällä tasolla. Kahden toisiaan kohtaan lähtökohtaisesti vihamielisen hahmon lähentyminen on toteutettu uskottavasti ja pienellä humoristisella vivahteella"

"6.1 DVD Hyvin pitkälti Mifunen ja Marvinin kykyjen varassa heiluva saarihupailu. Mukava kokemus kyllä, mutta pan&scan julkaisulta katsominen saattoi verottaa hieman katselukokemusta. "

Maybe it's because I was tierd. The weird score surprisingly enhances a lot of scenes. My second Boo"

My second Boorman film after The Emerald Forest, I understand I have not seen his best work, but so far, for the most part, I've been impressed.

3/5

"The enemies of war have to become friends in order to survive in the isolated pacific island. The two rival nations starts an existential battle against the nature. John Boorman is one of the kid with his outdoor-pictures (The Emerald Forest, Deliverance). "
