Definitely not a remake of the MGM classic, but a Robert Bolt-scripted meditation on the conflict between Bligh's puritanism and Christian's surrender to Polynesian paganism. The floggings and sadism are thus kept to a minimum, with Hopkins' Bligh emerging less as a hissable villain than as a credibly sympathetic but flawed character. It's all a brave try, though Gibson is perhaps not up to the demands of a Christian's progress from naive rating to self-loathing exile, and Donaldson's direction often verges on the stolid.

Watched this on TCM last night and really enjoyed it. Powerhouse performances from Hopkins and Gibson and some great early roles for Daniel Day-Lewis, Bernard Hill and Liam Neeson. The cinematography is breathtaking and although it does drag in the middle, its a superb epic sea-adventure in which no character is flawless.
