Rating: 66/100 -- It isn't one of the director's most impressive outputs, but when a solid genre entry such as this is one of your "lesser" films, it says a lot about the quality of your work. Full Review
Rating: B -- For a propaganda film, this one is superior. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 4/5 -- Although it draws about the longest and most pliant bow that has ever been drawn in the line of fanciful war films and goes completely overboard in the last reel, it is still a continuously fascinating, frequently thrilling and occasionally exalting show. Full Review
New York Times
Howard Hawks finds a perfect vehicle for his study of the male group. William Faulkner polished the dialogue, but as a silent it would still be tremendously exciting and evocative. Full Review
All of director Howard Hawks' skills are on display in this exciting, crackerjack WWII film. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Gritty, emotional actioner made at height of WWII. Strong cast.
