Another Poor Effort from Marlon BrandoReviewed bySAVote: 1/10

Originally I would have given this film a 3 out of 10 but I read the reviews and I disagree with all of them so I gave it a one. First of all, Marlon Brando has no range. If he is not mumbling, he is overextending himself. Brando is the most overrated actor in history. After Mutiny on the Bounty, he lost his status in Hollywood. He regained it with the Godfather. This was made before the Godfather.

If you only saw On the Waterfront, A Streetcar Named Desire or the Godfather, you would think that he was a great actor. I saw those films first and wanted to see more of his movies. However, each movie of his reveals more flaws than any perceived greatness.

In this film, the Nightcomers, Brando is either overacting or not acting at all. He stands around and broods as the camera pans. I don't care about Quint, who is a bum but stays employed because the new guardian of the children doesn't care. Guess what? Neither do I. The children and the rest of the supporting cast are plastic toys used poorly by Michael Winner, the director. A great actor could have made something of this script and a great director could have made something of this pathetic actor. Neither showed up for the shoot. There is good material for a film but everyone handles their roles so poorly that the film rambles on without a point. It is extremely boring.

Whether or not it was a prequel or not does not matter at all. Brando is saying, "I'm Brando doing Brando acting and you're going to like it because I'm Brando, d***it." I keep thinking of Eddie Murphy as Gumby when I watch Brando.

My advice: Watch a Bogart film. Bogart is enjoyable to watch even if the film is awful. Or watch the Godfather, On the Waterfront or A Streetcar Named Desire. Every other film of Brando's irritated me to no end.

Brando's waterlooReviewed byamosduncan_2000Vote: 7/10

Made just before "The Godfather" saved his career and changed his life, "The Nightcommers" shows just what a desperate state Brando's career was in. This deeply terrible film is awful in a lot of fairly interesting ways, however, and a curious movie hound will want to endure it's wretched 96 minutes.

It should be noted that this prequil violates both James's "The Turn Of The Screw" and "The Innocents" the great film of that novel. It comes off like many cheap brit or Italian horror films, with a clumsy and offensive sex scene thrown in. Michael Winner's reputation as a terrible director was well earned. Scene after awful scene is handled clumsily and the ending is really terrible.

Oddly, the film foreshadows both "Last Tango" and "The Missouri Breaks" where Brando once again used his Irish accent. If you, like me, respect the still controversial "Last Tango" as a classic, the movie will be even more painful. Brando, handsome but already gaining girth, was forced by Bertoluchi to drop twenty pounds, we can see why.

The whole point of The Novel is that we cannot be sure WHAT happened at Bly, and this film provides a most unwelcome explanation.
