Both Buster Keaton and Earnest Torrance gave a unforgettable performance. They played beautifully together as a father and son. Torrance is unsure his son is the man he hoped he should be, dandy Keaton unsure he can live up to his father's expectations and is dragged along. When his father's livelihood and freedom are threatened, the son is forced to prove himself to his father, his love and her father. Great story and plenty of laughs and thrills!

In Steamboat Bill Jr., Buster Keaton plays the over-educated (read: wimpy) son of a gruff riverboat captain who wants him to man up during a river war with a more modern boat threatening to drive the little guy out of business. Complication: Junior falls for the daughter of his father's rival. Sometimes, Keaton seems to be more interested in crafting a good comedy story or situation rather than something to hang slapstick sequences on, and I don't necessarily mind that. The first couple acts tell a universal father-son story, and there's a Romeo and Juliet feel to the romance, but here, I do admit it needs more physical humor (well he didn't entirely direct it). In any case, Keaton always seems to reserve the best for the third act, and there he stages an eye-popping hurricane sequence that is probably very nearly as dangerous for him as it looks. Lots of destruction. Lots of stunts. And it's going to resolve both the romance and the father-son troubles very neatly indeed. Another good bit of fun, worth sticking with.

Whilst the visual effects were amazing I found the storyline a little sub par.

BK delivers great comedy as usual but the special effects seem especially fascinating for the time period. This and the gutsy stunts really set this film apart for me.
