Information and Film Reviews for Moby Dick the Movie

Staff rating

Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

This adaptation of Herman Melville's high seas saga features Peck as Captain Ahab. His obsession with desire for revenge upon the great white whale, Moby Dick, isn't always believable, but the moments that click, however, make the film more than worthwhile.
