USA Today - 03/09/2007
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Pure good vs. impure evil, Herman Melville style. A once-praised, now underrated film..."

Product Description:

Adapted from the last novel by Herman Melville, an allegory of good vs. evil in the story of a naive young man pressed into the service of the British Navy at the end of the 18th century. When the young sailor kills the ship's brutal master-at-arms, he's tried for murder. Overly serious, but a stunning debut for the Oscar-nominated Terence Stamp.

Plot Synopsis:

Adapted from the last book written by Herman Melville, an allegory of good vs. evil, with innocence standing by as the helpless victim. A naive young man is pressed into the service of the British Navy at the very end of the 18th century. He views first hand the cruelty and extreme brutality of the ship's sadistic master-at-arms, and accidentally kills him. He is then tried for his murder.
