Critic Reviews for Island of Lost Men

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

[The jungle setting] suggests that if the camera were swung no more than a frame or so to either side it would reveal a filling station, or a roadside food dispensary in the shape of a hot dog.

The story is not particularly novel; but it holds one's interest fairly well.

A diverting character driven action programmer remake of White Woman.

The Island of Lost Men, to be frank about it, is simply a gangster flicker transferred to the Malay jungles.

The most fascinating group of villains east of Singapore appears in this free-for-all adventure. They are played by fine character actors, too -- my vote going to Broderick Crawford, as the American gambler, with Ernest Truex ... [the] runner-up.
