The Bounty

Roger Donaldson's The Bounty comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible, and the soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. This is a solid release from MGM/UA that should satisfy fans of this oft-told tale.

The Bounty 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Sexual conquest with beautiful, half-clothed naked women on the beach. Captain Bligh in this film is not the sadistic villain of past, but a more sophisticated, ambitious and sexually backward man. I love the sort of nuanced relationship between Christian and Bligh that is implied in the film. The "relationship" being of a homosexual variety. Anthony Hopkins played brilliantly the stern and cruel Bligh. Don't forget Tahiti women! Also Daniel Day Lewis and Liam Neeson as Englishman in some of their first roles? Mel Gibson was as campy as ever.

This film is the best and most historically acurate of the Mutiny on the Bounty films. It lays waste the myth of Capt William Bligh as a horrid orge. Bligh's trip across the Pacific with loyal officers in the Bounty's small launch is one of the greatest achievements in the anals of Naval history. The film is perfectly cast. An outstanding production by any measure and Mel Gibson's best film.
