Voyage of the Dammed is a sluggish melodrama, loaded with familiar film names who flesh out the diverse formula characters involved in this story about a ship carrying Jews away from Nazi Germany.

Based on the book by Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan-Witts, screenplay follows the form of a prototype ‘ark’ film, introducing the specimen couples, herein Jews deliberately loaded aboard a ship to which Cuba will deny entry permit, thereby fulfilling a Nazi propaganda plan. Max von Sydow, a non-Nazi German, is skipper of the ship.

Fact that the story is based on an actual, and shocking, incident makes all the more disappointing its transfer to the screen. The action zigs and zags between the cluttered set of characters.
