Very good. Very good indeed. Not the strongest of debuts for Marlon Brando but certainly a strong debut from him. He plays a paraplegic war veteran who, straight from his opening monologue, has completely given up on leading a normal life. It takes his wife, Teresa Wright, and doctor, Everett Sloane (who gives a teriffic performance) to literally try to get him back on his feet. There are some exc... read more

Like many of Stanley Kramer’s film, The Men is a solidly built bit of moralizing, a “message movie” that marries dramatic form to topicality. Sometimes these films felt less like coherently constructed narrative films than long sermons, occasionally more than a little self-righteous (Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is the worst for this liberal back-patting, and I’m a huge liberal).

The Men

“Like many of Stanley Kramer’s film, The Men is a solidly built bit of moralizing, a “message movie” that marries dramatic form to topicality. Sometimes these films felt less like coherently constructed narrative films than long sermons, occasionally more than a little self-righteous (Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is the worst for this liberal back-patting, and I’m a huge liberal). Kramer’s films have a distinct call-to-arms, many flaws, but they’re also really well made and typically feature actors giving great performances.

The same is mostly true for The Men. It places the focus a bit too hard on quietly noble suffering, treating some of the deeper intensity or fury of the men with child-ish gloves. The Men features Marlon Brando’s first feature film performance,” read more

Miika's Movie Diary - 2015 (436 movies items)

"9.2, Netflix Marlon Brando on sotaveteraani, jolle koituu rampautumisesta sekä ihmissuhde- että identiteettiogelmia. Elokuva kuvaa hyvin ihmisten lokeroimista ns. normaalien ihmisten ulkopuolelle jonkin vamman perusteella, mikä tuntuu varsin ihmisarvoa alentavalta. Brandon hahmon suhtautuminen omaan tulevaisuuteensa on nihilistinen eikä tietenkään koe tarvitsevansa muilta saamaansa sääliä. Miehen suorituksen myötä elokuva jättääkin varsin vaikean ja toivottoman tunteen, vaikka lop"

" For his film debut in The Men as a paraplegic World War II Lieutenant, Brando stayed nearly a month in bed at a real life veterans hospital and spent much of the duration of the film shoot confined to a wheelchair, even when off set."

"Watched: 6.2 --------------- Erittäin mielenkiintoinen ja tunnelmallinen elokuva. Paitsi että viiden tähden antaminen tuntuu mahdottomalta, kun kestoa on liian vähän ja tarina etenee turhan nopeasti. Toki Brando tekee jo debyytissään hienoa työtä. "
