Critic Reviews for The Island of Dr. Moreau
Brando's performance is enormous fun, but it's not just a joke. He's hilarious and gently mesmerizing at once, and director John Frankenheimer savvily adjusts the tone of his movie to fit Brando's daft brilliance.
The movie keeps switching focus without ever getting its bearings, and when Brando exits earlier than expected, there's little but mayhem to fall back on.
Thanks to special creature and makeup effects by Stan Winston, the various deformed fiends take center stage, showcasing diverting designs and a decent production value.
Roughly akin to watching a slow-motion train wreck in which the flames spread into the brush and become an out-of-control wildfire. What the hell happened?
It's not to say there's not a lot wrong with the film, but rather to suggest that the chief criticisms of it being strange and "a mess" aren't among them.
Audience Reviews for The Island of Dr. Moreau
I genuinely can't begin to describe how bizarre this movie is. I almost recommend it just for people to see how bad movies can get.
Brando and Kilmer are both totally off their rockers in this. Kudos to Frankenheimer for just finishing this flawed, but slightly interesting film. Stan Winston's make up is also incredible.
Not that great.
