Superb war drama with Marlon Brando giving an excellent performance as a self described "German patriot" hired, by British colonel Trevor Howard, to infiltrate a Nazi ship carrying rubber essential to the allies. Brando poses as a top ranking officer of the SS to fool Yul Brynner's crew. Whilst Brando is undertstandably brilliant, Martin Benrath stands out as Kruse, a Nazi crewmember who gets incr... read more

How can a movie about a blackmailed German officer playing a cat-and-mouse game of brains and sabotage with a German merchant ship be so unbelievably dull? Yul Brynner does a fine job with his portrayal of the ship captain, who doesn’t appear to care much either way with the war but loves the sea and wants to fulfill his duty. But Marlon Brando frequently seems alternately tortured and a little ... read more

“How can a movie about a blackmailed German officer playing a cat-and-mouse game of brains and sabotage with a German merchant ship be so unbelievably dull? Yul Brynner does a fine job with his portrayal of the ship captain, who doesn’t appear to care much either way with the war but loves the sea and wants to fulfill his duty. But Marlon Brando frequently seems alternately tortured and a little bit bored by the entire thing. In interviews at the time Brando mentioned doing the film purely for money, and it shows. Much like Bette Davis, Brando would invent business or display an inability to hide his disdain for material he didn’t love with theatrical tics. Here, Brando stares out into the world with blank eyes, pausing and stuttering over dialog, crafting a performance that is like a c” read more

“Superb war drama with Marlon Brando giving an excellent performance as a self described "German patriot" hired, by British colonel Trevor Howard, to infiltrate a Nazi ship carrying rubber essential to the allies. Brando poses as a top ranking officer of the SS to fool Yul Brynner's crew. Whilst Brando is undertstandably brilliant, Martin Benrath stands out as Kruse, a Nazi crewmember who gets increasingly uncomfortable when Janet Margolin's beautiful Jewish aid-worker is taken prisoner aboard the ship. Jerry Golsmith's score is very memorable and the opening theme is reminiscent of Anton Karas's composition for The Third Man. The photography is shadowy and moody, adding a tense atmosphere to the proceedings particularly to the exciting and shocking climax to the film. My only criticism's a” read more
