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

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: April (24 movies items)

"First viewing - April 13th I remember reading Lord of the Flies in high school, but I have stronger memories of the Simpsons episode where they did their take on the story. It's safe to say both of those are better than this adaptation, which isn't bad nor exceptional. It adapts the book just fine, but I never felt the same emotional connection with the film. I felt more like I was passively watching it, and kept waiting for something to bring me closer into the film. That never happened. Aside"

" 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."

"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."

"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.
