Rare to see a war movie from this era that gets what every veteran says war is really like: day to day routine periodically mixed with random, abrupt conflict. Bogart's best movie that doesn't get mentioned enough & one of his more generous, less showy performances, making it the ensemble piece it needs to be. It's also admirable in it's progressive, humanistic portrayals of soldiers of other nationalities/races
Sahara is a seriously overlooked Humphrey Bogart gem despite it not being Bogart's movie. Its more of a team effort as the chemistry of the ensemble cast really makes Sahara work. There's not too much going on that you haven't seen before but its pretty well shot & avoids claustrophobic sets. It gets a little sentimental but what do you want from a war movie that came out during WWII?
Entertaining old-fashioned war movie from director Zoltan Korda. The script is fairly hackneyed, but it's fast-paced, with solid action scenes and some compelling imagery (a surprising few WWII films are set in North Africa) - and, of course, Humphrey Bogart brings his inimitable presence. Maybe only a minor classic, but definitely worth watching.
