Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Apr 26, 2006
Rating: 4/5 -- In many ways, the film can be seen as a precursor to the modern disaster flicks that had their heyday in the 1970s, and then another one in the '90s. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- A prototypical B-movie adventure/thriller that rises above the shortcomings of its production values. Full Review

Description by

Five Came Back is pure escapist fun -- a tightly wound survival yarn about a diverse cross-section of travelers who have crashed in a dense jungle wilderness. They're played by a gold-standard cast: scarlet woman Lucille Ball, hard-boiled pilot Chester Morris, fugitive socialites Patric Knowles and Wendy Barrie, professor C. Aubrey Smith, mob gunsel Allen Jenkins, extradited killer Joseph Calleia and police escort John Carradine. What starts as a team-building idyll soon grows desperately dark as ominous tribal drums signal a fate worse than death if they can't repair their battered aircraft.
