Editorial Reviews

1945, on an old cargo ship somewhere deep in the Pacific ocean: Captain Morton strives to become commander, so he demands the maximum quality of work from his crew, without granting them any freedom or favors - ignoring that they're thousand of miles away from the front. In one word: he drives his crew crazy. They are near mutiny, but no-one dares to do the first step. Until Ensign Pulver plays a prank on the captain that triggers fatal consequences...

Customer Reviews

An allround great movie.

As I get older I tend to miss some of the things I knew from before - and this is "safe" enough to let the grandkids watch.

Robert Walker takes over for Jack Lemmon as Ensign Pulver, and does it quite well.

Although not as classic as Mister Roberts, this is still a great movie. Hech, I didn't even know there was a sequel, so I bought both copies. They have both earned a Top Shelf placing in my bookcase. All characters play great parts, even though James Cagney and Henry Fonda aren't in this movie. It would have been great to see some of the actors from the Mister Roberts, even though the 'new' doc, played by Walter Matthea does a great job. Both he and the "old Ensign" make great movies together! As most movies drag the chain nowadays going for 2-3+ hours, this is one movie I thought could go on and not get boring. Another classic and great fun for all family to enjoy. We wish more movies were like this nowadays. No Swearing, No Violence, No War .... not even a bullet is fired. An allround great movie.

Format: VHS Tape
This is not a bad sequel from director Joshua Logan. It more or less picks up where MISTER ROBERTS left off but is presented with an entirely knew cast in familiar roles. Robert Walker Jr. is Ensign Pulver. Burl Ives is the Captain. Walter Matthau is good as Doc. He has the cynicism and wit but lacks the good-natured purpose of being that William Powell demonstrated in MISTER ROBERTS. To its credit the film tries to uncover the facade that the Captain wears night and day. Is he really a no good miserable excuse for a human being or is there something lurking deep inside that keeps his humanity from emerging. Pulver sets out unravel the enigma. There are some great moments of comedy and humanity and the film does have a great supporting cast that includes Jack Nicholson, James Farentino, Millie Perkins, Tommy Sands, Al Freeman, Jr., James Coco and Larry Hagman that keeps it all moving.

The sequel to "Mister Roberts" returns to the worst ship in the navy, with the worst officer on that ship squarely in its sights. Pulver is equally the ressurection and damnation of the ship, being responsible for more action and chaos than the crew has seen in it's whole tour. Pulver's problems are only beginning when he's stranded on a raft with the Captain, a positively venemous Burl Ives. What happens after shows the transformation of the lecherous, ambitious, adolescent Pulver into an adult, or does it? Keep your eyes on the movie and always count your marbles.

Interesting how the passage of decades can change one's perspective.

When I first screened this I remember feeling sick. In my mind it was black and white with no compromise - there could be no replacement for Jack Lemmon & Co. And unless he was going to reprise his role - then no one could or should. Remember, he won an Academy Award for his performance as Ensign Pulver - it was that good. Anything and anyone that came after was never going to be enough.

Saw this film again for the first time in more than a quarter century.

I was wrong.

Today, it's my belief that one should see this as a complete and standalone production with no connection to 'Mister Roberts' the film. It is in fact proximally closer to 'Mister Roberts' the stage play.

What changed my mind were the truly outstanding performances of co-stars Robert Walker Jr. and Burl Ives.

Walker's energetic and amusing take on said ensign was genuine; an approach that I felt was touching and very real. While Ives is a true chameleon! A powerhouse performance that can honestly be described as incredible. While not taking anything away from the amazing Jimmy Cagney, whose interpretation of the character was petty and conniving, but generally "all there" - Burl sent the character to the edge of sanity. A startling execution as the driven, maniacal and severely damaged Captain Morton which, in my mind, completely redefined the role. Hard to believe this is the the same person who was the saintly songster and cuddly Christmas character of my youth.

The one character whom I thought had lost a step in the sequel was 'Doc'.

I saw this movie in the theater, I was 10 years old. I loved it then and I love it now. I didn't even know it was a sequel to Mr. Roberts until many years later.

First time I seen this movie, I loved it! Hadn't seen Mr. Roberts prior to seeing Ensign Pulver, but after seeing Mr. Roberts...Ensign Pulver is the video I bought!
