The Reviews for Moby Dick (1956) 1080p


FrothyReviewed byFramescourerVote: 7/10

A terrific film. It can be messy, dated and continuously overwrought. But it's never less than entertaining, spirited and behind all the high-seas, biblical-vernacular romanticism is a very tough, serious action drama. Much of the film is close framed, including the hunting sequences. It's so dramatic this way, literally drowning the audience in the action: Huston also manages to catch Ahab's claustrophobia this way - no doubt he suffers his ties to the whale and would excise it physically to win himself some peace.

The cast is super. Gregory Peck's soul-scarred Ahab manages his Melvillian diatribes well - he's damaged goods but no hallucinating salt. Leo Genn's Starbuck is probably the pick of the rest as Ahab's quiet, earthbound, Chrisitan doppelganger. The cast continues in strength right down to the tambourine wielding page of Tamba Allenby. 7/10

Sorely disappointed.....Reviewed byajb-nav85Vote: 1/10

Well, after reading the book for the first time, I decided to search for and download a movie version. This is the only one I could find available. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm no stranger to the movies from this era (production value, obvious painted backdrops vice real-life backgrounds, et cetera), and some of my favorite movies (I've seen and own literally thousands of movies) were made then as well. But with this one, I couldn't even make it through the first half hour. At first I was slightly annoyed by the dozen or so completely wrong details and dialogue, but I kept going because I know that always happens when a movie is adapted from a book. What finally killed it for me and what I simply couldn't bear was the ab....so.....lute....ly... TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE acting of Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab. It honestly reminded me of when an adult film star "acts" in a movie. I don't believe I've seen many, if any, of his other films, but given his very long career, I have to assume this was just one of the "let's just move on and try to forget about it" movies that all long-term actors seem to inevitably make at some points in their careers. For those who wrote those extensive, raving reviews, if you honestly believe what you wrote, I envy you and the ease with which you are satisfactorily entertained, though I suspect many were written simply in an attempt to "break in" to the business by sucking up to someone or another.

A Fine Job of Filming a Challenging NovelReviewed bySnow LeopardVote: 5/10

It would be impossible to make a movie that came up to the standard of the novel "Moby-Dick", but this film does a fine job of capturing some of the most important themes, and of telling a selection of the key parts of the story in an interesting way. It would be a temptation for any film-maker to put the focus on the action and the special effects, and thus ruin the heart of the book by downplaying its themes, as so many recent films have done with other classic material. Instead, John Huston's version concentrates on bringing out many of the complex internal and external conflicts of Captain Ahab, in sketching the crew members and their reactions to Ahab's monomania, and in portraying the atmosphere of frequent tedium, growing tension, and occasional dread aboard the 'Pequod'. Richard Basehart's mild, pleasant demeanor makes Ishmael an appropriate mirror for the events and characters on the ship. Gregory Peck does rather well in the very challenging role of Ahab. Ahab is one of the most carefully-designed and demanding characters in literature, and lesser actors would simply be an embarrassment in the part. On screen, there is much to Ahab that just does not come across, and Peck's performance has to be judged with that in mind. Leo Genn makes his scenes as Starbuck count, and several of the other crew members are portrayed well, albeit in much smaller parts. As Father Mapple, Orson Welles has only one scene, but it is an important one, in that it sets up some of the vital themes of the story ahead. Welles was an ideal choice, and his scene in the church is one scene that does come up to the high standard of Melville's novel. While there may indeed be some areas in which this version falls short, and it's fair to point them out, it would be pretty difficult to improve on it in a cinema version of the story. And if taken on its own, it fits together well, making generally good choices as to what material would fit together and would work on screen, and in using the photography and settings to create the right atmosphere. For those who appreciate the depth of the original story, this has more than enough to make it worth watching.
