Critic Reviews for Aloma of the South Seas

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Miss Gray, while no Bernhardt, holds up her end of the acting capably enough.

July 3, 2020 | Full Review…

The film transcription of Aloma of the South Seas, fails to stir up much interest because it lacks the essence of suspense and true dramatic quality.

June 9, 2020 | Full Review…

In adapting Aloma James Creelman, who wrote the script, and Maurice Tourneur lost much of the comedy in the play, but they did turn out a picture photographically beautiful.

The plot of Aloma of the South Seas is rather thin and unreal, but its settings give it a certain amount of Interest.

June 9, 2020 | Full Review…

To report candidly, this "idyl of the South Seas" falls considerably below greatness.

September 17, 2020 | Full Review…

The story is tawdry, slow in unfolding, and tenuous all the way -- and it fails to create any excitement. Scenes will build to a dramatic climax and then the punch disappears.
