| No classic, often unwatchable, but a valuable intimation of its director's future genius.
In many ways this is a dreadful film - poor production values; stereotypical characters; atrocious acting; reactionary politics; and a dull story about saving British shipyards. And yet this quota quickie was directed by Michael Powell, and reveals early on much of his brilliance - his portrayal of dangerous heroes; his ability to streak the everyday with both the Romantic and the disturbing; his often stunning use of montage and the camera - some of his amazing compositions, tilts and pans are wasted here. A must-see to watch a Portrait Of A Genius As A Young Apprentice.
