A stilted, bare-bones adaptation of William Golding's terrific novel. It bypasses the book's religious and psychological allegories and ignores characterisation of key characters (most notably Ralph, Simon and Roger) in favour of presenting 'highlights' and set-pieces from the book in an effort to make the film come across as powerful when the power of Golding’s story wasn’t primarily in actio... read more

Much better told and interesting than the 1990

In 1990, they made an American film of the classic book 'Lord of the Flies'. It received mixed reviews and a poor review from me! Fortunately 27 years prior to that, they made a 1963 British film which is much better told and interesting than the 1990 film. What I hated about the remake was the heavy Americanization! This version was British like the plot is. This movie features amazing talented y... read more

Movie Reviews (601-650) (50 movies items)

" Based upon the novel about a schoolboy class stranded on an island with all the adults killed. It is filmed in style as a documentary with only natural sound and un-actors making it feel like a very real film."

Elokuvapäiväkirja (99 movies items)

"16.9.2017 Kärpästen herra on luultavasti heikoin lukemani kirja, jonka perusteella on saatu Nobelin kirjallisuuspalkinto. Nuortenkirja häviää rikkaudessa esimerkiksi Astrid Lindgrenin vastaaville. Sen allegoria on raskas ja kulunut. Epäuskottavuudellakin on rajansa, vaikka kuinka tarkoitus olisi vain välittää kärjistetty sanoma. On ehkä korkealentoisen tuntuista ajatella, että ihminen on ihmiselle aina pohjimmiltaan susi, mutta sosiologiset tutkimukset ja moderni psykologia osoittav"

2017: The Movie List (49 movies items)

"Elokuva toimii oikeastaan vain tarinansa ansiosta. Muuten tämä on kömpelö tuotos, mutta yksittäisten hetkien ja ajoittain hyvien roolisuoritusten ansiosta elokuva pysyy ihan ok -tasoisena koko kestonsa ajan. Ei ihmeellinen muttei huonokaan."

My movie year 2017 (527 movies items)

"19.3. (DVD) "Suoraan perseeseen!" Luin kirjan yläasteella. Elokuvasovitus ei tuo alkuperäisteokseen oikeastaan mitään uutta, mitä nyt siirtää sen kankaalle. Mengeleen DVD:ssä oli jotain nykimisongelmia. Mieleen jäävät yllä mainitun repliikin lisäksi pojan paljaalle pyllylle piiskaaminen sekä sanoma, jonka mukaan tarvitsemme vahvaa johtajaa - tässä tapauksessa ankarinta mahdollista instituutiota, armeijaa - estämään barbaarisen ja alkukantaisen anarkian leviäminen.
