Editorial Reviews

Dino De Laurentiis' epic adventure story features an all-star cast and impressive special effects. Filmed entirely on location on the remote South Seas island of Bora Bora, this is a touching story of the desperate love affair between a young Samoan chief (Dayton Ka'ne) and a beautiful American painter (Mia Farrow), against the will of her father (Jason Robards), the powerful governor of the island. Amid this man-made tension comes a powerful hurricane so devastating, the lives of the lovers and the entire island are imperiled. Sven Nykvist's brilliant cinematography showcases both the beautiful island splendor and the catastrophic destruction of Hurricane.

I first saw this movie about 7 years ago and totally fell for it. The love between Mia Farrow and Dayton Kahe was unbelievable. It was extremely romantic. The last 30 minutes of the movie, to say the least, are edge-of-your-seat excitement! Just a great movie to sit and watch on a rainy saturday night alone or with your mate. I've probably seen it 9 times or more and love it more each time I watch it. There's no doubt . . . you'll love it. Enjoy!!!

In my opinion, Dayton Ka'ne is the star attraction of this film. Beautiful Cinematography, where the movie was filmed completly on location on the island of Bora Bora.
Cast also includes, Mia Farrow, Jason Robards, Max Von Sydow, Timothy Bottoms, James Keach, Trevor Howard, Ariirau Tekurarere and Manu Tupou.
I felt that Mia Farrow was miscast in this film. Although I do know people liked her in the tv serial, "Peyton Place" and the film, Rosemary's Baby (1968).
Dayton Ka'ne sizzles the screen and his acting is honest, smooth and natural. His love scenes are tender and passionate. Those honey-colored eyes!
His dancing will have you begging for more. The ceremonial dance sequences are very captivating. The Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Dorothy Lamour, Road To...movies were never like this.On the Road With Bob Hope and Bing Crosby Collection (Road to Singapore/Road to Zanzibar/Road to Morocco/Road to Utopia).
Dorothy Lamour was in the original movie, The Hurricane [Jon Hall and Dorothy Lamour].
What is missing from this story is how Charlotte was able to obtain a connection to Matangi for it to become romantic so quickly. Perhaps a few more reaction shots is what we needed.
The special effects of the hurricane will hold your attention.
Dayton Ka'ne did one more film completed in 1979. BEYOND THE REEF (1981,) aka SHARK BOY OF BORA BORA and SEA KILLER, also produced by Dino De Laurentiis.

Charlotte (Mia Farrow) travels to a Samoan island to visit her father, the governor (Jason Robards). Before long she falls in love with the beautiful native chief Matangi (gorgeous Dayton Ka'ne). Their romance is not popular. The story moves slowly and there's not much more I can tell without giving away plot points that occur more than halfway into the movie. And this is the movie's main problem. The adventure part of the movie doesn't start after well over an hour. Director Jan Troell has never been known to make fast paced movies, and this time the script is working against him. It takes a very long time before the story really takes off and by then many viewers will already have lost their interest. The location shots are beautiful and the hurricane scenes are spectacular. These help it up to a very weak three star rating.

The DVD is presented in 1:78 widescreen (from 2:20 original). The 2 hour movie is divided into only 10 chapters. There are no special features except a trailer.

Format: DVD
A remake of 30's classic - this was panned on release and was considered a flop on release in 1979, but it arrived when the genre was already in the death throes with big flops like Beyond The Poseidon Adventure and Meteor.

As a reminder of those big 70's disaster movies this is a standout...with unbelievable special effects for the time.
However the first half of the film concerns itself with the romance between Mia Farrow and handsome island boy Dayton Ka'ne...which is beautifully photographed and believable some of the criticism at the time was that it was just too long and dull before the real special effects start. However in the tradition of any great romance there is the angry father, the tribal dances, a trial a scorned navy captain etc etc.

A must have for fans of the 'disaster genre' like me with wonderful special effects and one of the most beautiful movie scores I have ever heard.

De Laurentis must have spent an enormous amount of money to make this movie which is a remake of the 1930s version. I didn't get to see the first version but when the film hit the cinemas in 1978, I was in my early 20s and it was quite remarkable with what they can do with special effects. A typical love story, I'd say. Mia Farrow playing the role of Charlotte Bruckner a beautiful painter from Boston who was visiting his hard-headed-dictator father Captain Bruckner (Jason Robards) who was govenor of Pago Pago. She meets Matangi (Dayton Ka'ne) a high chief of Alava and both of them were instantly attracted to each other. They remain inseparable onwards. Three-quarters into the film, Captain Bruckner sentenced Matangi to life imprisionment for a crime he did not commit but the latter managed to escaped to be reunited with Charlotte. They finally became an item at the end of the movie after the devatasting hurricane died down. Simple love story but amazing special effects. I think the credit should go to Dayton Ka'ne for his performance. He was only 23 when he starred alongside Mia Farrow who was 43 then. Farrow went on to make several more movies but Dayton made just another, in 1981, entitled Beyond the Reef. Nobody knows what happened to Dayton after that.
