Five minutes in, and cowriter-director John Huston has already set the stage for something besides your typical '50s jungle-bwana boogie.

David Fear, Time Out New York, 2011-02-09

 

It is a picture with an unassuming warmth and naturalness...

William Brogdon, Variety, 2007-06-28

 

The direction is often questionable, but the screenplay (by James Agee, John Collier, Huston, and Peter Viertel from C.S. Forester's novel) is a model of tight construction.

Don Druker, Chicago Reader, 2007-06-28

 

Impossible to deny this film's entertainment value...

Geoff Andrew, Time Out, 2006-06-24

 

And so Mr. Huston merits credit for putting this fantastic tale on a level of sly, polite kidding and generally keeping it there, while going about the happy business of engineering excitement and visual thrills.

Bosley Crowther, New York Times, 2003-05-20
