Critic Reviews for Monsoon

All Critics (4)

The studio gave Edgar G. Ulmer an evocative title and a six-day schedule, which is more than enough for this bit of overpowering ingenuity

February 13, 2010 | Full Review…

Not one of Edgar G. Ulmer's most essential films, and it's more than a little clunky, but it features some inspired miniature work and an energetic lead performance by John Carradine.

June 1, 2009 | Full Review…

There were great underwater sea diving shots and the catastrophic storm was convincing, proving what an excellent craftsman Ulmer could be.

April 26, 2007 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Highly inventive, visually splendid, low budget adventure film.

Audience Reviews for Monsoon

Filmed during WW2, this action adventure has the feel of riding on a shoestring budget. For instance, Sondergaard and Carradine usually play secondary characters or heavies, but here are the romantic leads. Even they sound surprised to learn that, but both give it their all. Carradine very nearly seems good enough to be leading man material. Sidney Toler is good as the villain. This one is an odd little puppy, better than one might think it would be.
