Critic Reviews of "The Island of Dr. Moreau"USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
The movie keeps switching focus without ever getting its bearings, and when Brando exits earlier than expected, there's little but mayhem to fall back on.FlavorwireAugust 16, 2016
Roughly akin to watching a slow-motion train wreck in which the flames spread into the brush and become an out-of-control wildfire. What the hell happened?Film Freak CentralAugust 19, 2012
It's not to say there's not a lot wrong with the film, but rather to suggest that the chief criticisms of it being strange and "a mess" aren't among them.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsApril 27, 2005
Muddled effort.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)July 19, 2004
An often fascinating mess, but a mess all the same.Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)June 23, 2004
There's the obese Brando pretending to be God while dressed in gauzy white robes like a demented popeYour Movies (cleveland.com)October 24, 2003
Amazingly, Kilmer delivers an odder performance than Brando. Creepy retelling.Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)July 01, 2003
In its final third, the movie goes to hell in more ways than Frankenheimer intended.Critics Inc./America OnlineMay 08, 2003
The most exciting characters are killed off too early, and what we're left with is a Satan's "Seasme Street."Needcoffee.comMarch 05, 2003
I'm sure it looked good on paper. That and Kilmer's frighteningly apt mimicry of Brando's voice are about the only positive things I can say.eFilmCritic.comJanuary 01, 2000
Uneven; definitely has its moments.
