      Fernando F. Croce CinePassion The studio gave Edgar G. Ulmer an evocative title and a six-day schedule, which is more than enough for this bit of overpowering ingenuity Feb 13, 2010 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Not one of Edgar G. Ulmer's most essential films, and it's more than a little clunky, but it features some inspired miniature work and an energetic lead performance by John Carradine. Jun 1, 2009 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews There were great underwater sea diving shots and the catastrophic storm was convincing, proving what an excellent craftsman Ulmer could be. Rated: C+ Apr 26, 2007 Full Review Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Highly inventive, visually splendid, low budget adventure film. Jan 18, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      kevin w Filmed during WW2, this action adventure has the feel of riding on a shoestring budget. For instance, Sondergaard and Carradine usually play secondary characters or heavies, but here are the romantic leads. Even they sound surprised to learn that, but both give it their all. Carradine very nearly seems good enough to be leading man material. Sidney Toler is good as the villain. This one is an odd little puppy, better than one might think it would be. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member another south seas yarn straight from the Hollywood blacklot! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Isle of Forgotten Sins is a rousing low budget adventure from Edgar G. Ulmer--Fun Old Time Classic!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a fun surprise... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member The Gangs of New Orleans. There's a wonderful nihilist or humanist screen play waiting to be written, depending on your bearings. The nihilist ends the film with Katrina; the humanist shows them working together to survive. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1194016,00.html Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member LOW BUDGET B FILM, WITH A LESS THAN STELLAR CAST. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF INTERESTING SEQUENCES IS, BUT OVERALL VERY HOKEY. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
