First-rate film based on the Jack London novel about sadistic sea captain Wolf Larsen (Edward G. Robinson), who rules with an iron fist. His authority is challenged by the presence of three new people on his ship -- a writer (Alexander Knox) and two fugitives (Ida Lupino, John Garfield). A gripping drama with some truly brilliant character work from an extraordinary cast, led by the incomparable Edward G. Robinson. I first saw this movie many years ago and Robinson's intense performance made me a fan of his for life. Great work from Alexander Knox, John Garfield, Ida Lupino, Howard da Silva, and Gene Lockhart. Special mention for scene-stealing Barry Fitzgerald, who is clearly having a field day with his part. Michael Curtiz's atmospheric direction and Robert Rossen's wonderful script are also big pluses. This is a wonderful movie that any classic film fan should enjoy. Old Hollywood filmmaking at its finest.

"Pack up and go forward you filthy scum!"Reviewed byutgard14Vote: 8/10
This movie stands on it's own merits. It is a striking and strong movie about a brutish sea captain and the barbaric life aboard his vessel. The acting is very well done and it is well cast. Edward G. Robinson does a wonderful job as the captain, and Alexander Knox well portrays a man who has lived a soft life thrown into a harsh new world.
However, having first read the novel by Jack London, I was disappointed in the deviation of the story line. There are small differences at the beginning that continue to get larger until the end of the movie is dramatically difference than the end of the book.
If you can put the book out of your mind, or if you haven't read it, the movie is greatly enjoyable. Regrets to Jack London.
Intensely atmospheric and well-crafted adaptation of Jack London's famous novel featuring a strong cast starring Edward G. Robinson in one of his greatest roles, wonderful black-and-white photography and an absorbing and fast-moving (though maybe a bit too condensed) storyline.
Some narrative weaknesses here and there - what about Larsen's brother? - and some hasty character development prevent this solid movie from being a minor Warner classic.
Still the best version of London's story as far as I know and miles ahead of Raimund Harmstorf's potato crushing.
