Mutiny on the Bounty was a fun yet intense movie about the popular historical event, which involved the HMS bounty. For those, like myself who have not learned about the HMS bounty or its historical significance. This film will paint a picture of what happened in the events of the HMS Bounty in its sailing years.
The story of the HMS Bounty in this film is pretty straight forward. The ship sails from Great Britain to the South Pacific ocean. The dangerous hazards encountered when passing cape horn causes the sailors to land in the south pacific islands. When ashore the men of HMS bounty fall in love with the island paradise. After numerous days passed, the captain in charge begins to feel that the crew aboard the HMS is losing themselves to the addiction of tropical land. The captain then mistreats his sailors in an attempt to discourage their behavior. Only to have the crew of HMS bounty turn to mutiny against the captain
I really admire the camera shots that they were able to achieve. Combined with great acting performances including: Anthony Hopkins, Mel Gibson, and Daniel Day lewis. This film makes you feel several emotions by the time it ends. Brilliant credit to the mise-en-scene that made everything pop as if it were an island vacation. Everything in each scene was so perfectly set up, i didn’t once think about the production side upon viewing this film.
For some reason, i can’t seem to place a genre in which this film would fit in with. While it is adventurous at times, it can also be brutal, but yet shows humor throughout the film. This is definitely a movie wouldn’t mind watching again!
