Reception

Ray Loynd wrote for the Los Angeles Times:

The production rivals the classic Edward G. Robinson remake (Warner Bros., 1942), generally cited as the strongest of all six prior "Sea Wolf" movies (including three silents). ... Bronson, playing what's probably his first thinking man's heavy, seems right at home as the power-maddened Wolf Larsen butting heads and spouting lines from Milton ("It's better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven"). But it's Reeve's character, compelled to claw his way out of the galley as the spat-upon cabin boy, who does all the changing in this sea-tossed crucible of fire.[2]
