David, South Africa. 10 July 2014

The Cruel Sea DVD is a brilliant depiction of the novel by Nicholas Montsarrat. The movie moves at a brisk pace and poignantly depicts the the lives of the crew on their convoy protection duties. The acting is superb generally and includes a once-in-a-lifetime performance by Jack Hawkins as Ericson, the captain, who is frequently faced with life or death decisions as he leads his crew through the horrors of sea warfare. The quality of the DVD is first class. There is a marvellous bonus in the form of a delightful and informative interview with Sir Donald Sinden, one of the leading actors, who is still going strong at the age of 90.
