  1. Jason's rating of the film The Hurricane

    There is always a certain purity of vision in Ford, even though, before he kind of stepped in to the shoes that everybody seemed to agree fit, he made a wide variety of movies. This is a romantic South Seas pic about the ills of colonialism. It is also a stunning disaster pic (containing what must obviously be among the greatest disaster set pieces made up until that time). Also: weirdly sexy for Ford.

  2. Adam Suraf's rating of the film The Hurricane

    Three things come to mind as pertaining the Ford cannon with this excellent South Seas adventure film. One, John Carradine playing a sadistic island prison warden, like in "The Prisoner of Shark Island"; two, Thomas Mitchell as a kindly drunken doctor, as in "Stagecoach" two years later; and three, Raymond Massey's following the law to a tee, even if unjust, like Karl Malden in "Cheyenne Autumn" 27 years later.

  3. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Hurricane

    Only John Ford could easily turn standard material into high-quality entertainment and its clearly evident in this South Pacific adventure. Great supporting characters, a dash of colonial oppression, and a thrilling climax bolster this typical story into the ranks of Ford's many underrated works.

  4. Christofer Pierson's rating of the film The Hurricane

    Unjustly forgotten early masterpiece by Ford and company. I can't fathom why I never heard of it before watching it last night. It's loaded with astonishing images and ideas.

  5. Hudson.'s rating of the film The Hurricane

    In his memoir La tregua ("The Truce"; re-titled The Reawakening for publication in the U.S.), Primo Levi recounted his experience watching The Hurricane among other films while he was interned at a Soviet transit camp at Starye Dorogi in the aftermath of World War II.
