The Reviews for Mysterious Island (1961) 1080p

Lesser known Ray Harryhausen movieReviewed bypreppy-3Vote: 8/10

In 1865 a bunch of convicts escape from prison in a large balloon. They land on a mysterious island and battle some large creatures. They are joined by two shipwrecked women and they all plan to get off the island together.

The script and dialogue are at the level of an Archie comic book but I still like this movie. It's colorful, has some great special effects and concentrates more on the story than the giant creatures. There are only a few battles with the creatures but I was never bored. The great Ray Harryhausen topped himself with this movie--the crab and the bees were unbelievable! Also there's a bombastic score by Bernard Herrmann (who could have toned it down a little) and two genuinely good performances by Joan Greenwood and Herbert Lom. Actually, the entire cast is pretty good but they really shine.

A perfect family film--although my mother had a hard time with the bee sequence when I saw it as a kid!

Why is this so unknown compared to the other Harryhausens movies? I think it's better than the silly Sinbad films.

Best Story In HistoryReviewed bybkoganbingVote: 7/10

I don't believe that you can make a bad film of a Jules Verne story. Some better than others, some inferior ones, but not a bad film. The plots and the characters were born for the screen. If Verne had been born later and allowed full credit control in writing and producing films, what films they would have been.

Mysterious Island with the help of that other creative genius Ray Harryhausen concerns some Union soldiers who escape from a Confederate prison in a Confederate observation balloon. There's also one Confederate stowaway as well.

In what is described as the greatest storm in American history this balloon is blown WAAAAAAAAAAAAY off course and they land on an island they later learn is 1000 miles from New Zealand. And what a place with all kinds of giant creatures, crabs, bees, and even a giant chicken all brought to life by Ray Harryhausen with some of his best work.

The man responsible for all this is Captain Nemo late of the Nautilus which it turns out was not sunk as written by Verne in 20000 Leagues Under The Sea, but rather limped into its home base by Herbert Lom in a measured and calculated performance. Nemo has reassessed his life and now thinks that instead of blowing up the ships of war from every nation, he should work toward providing abundance for man. Hence he pioneers organic food and that giant wildlife is part of the experiment.

Two women also are shipwrecked as well Beth Rogan and her aunt Joan Greenwood. Michael Craig and Michael Callan are Union soldiers, Percy Herbert who usually plays cockney characters didn't quite get the southern accent down for the Rebel hitchhiker and Gary Merrill is the war correspondent whose got the best lines and the best story in history and no way to report it out.

All the human players however pale in comparison to Ray Harryhausen's animation monsters. Mysterious Island which while not a faithful telling of Verne's story is still good entertainment, as good as I remember it at 14 seeing it in the theater.

One of the best Harrhausen filmsReviewed bythe real Spider JerusalemVote: 10/10

Definitely one of Harryhausen's best, and one of his few movies that can be watched for reasons other than the amazing stop-motion effects. The cast and acting are excellent, and as always, Bernard Herrmann's score is amazing. The bird scene is still the high point though. The muddled ending with [SOILER!!!]Captain Nemo showing up and all is a little silly and the climax could have been better, but it's still a fantastic film that stands the test of time after all these years.
