  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Horse Soldiers

    Une oeuvre "reniée" par John Ford qui ne mérite pas sa désapprobation ..... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Warren Spratley's rating of the film The Horse Soldiers

    As Straub states: this is representative of American cinema's apogee.

  4. Adam Suraf's rating of the film The Horse Soldiers

    John Ford's last film of the 50's, and of his myriad of films about the Cavalry, this is the only one to actually take place during the Civil War, recounting a daring Union mission behind enemy lines that turns the tide of Vicksburg. Entertaining, with Wayne and Holden in fine form, and lots of the usual goofy Fordian humor that permeats the masterpieces as well as the lessers, which this is of the latter.

  5. WhatsUpWill's rating of the film The Horse Soldiers

    Highly underrated Ford film. Very entertaining. William Holden is just as good as John Wayne and Constance Towers is a hoot! It keeps you engaged the entire time.

  6. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Horse Soldiers

    Conflicts and divides present in every frame, illustrating Ford's remarkable use of location - landscapes in particular - to provide a commentary on the narrative. Wayne's portrayal of Colonel Marlowe is also one of his strongest performances, full of the usual Hollywood machismo and stoical self-righteousness, but punctuated by a growing vulnerability and an element of self-doubt.

  7. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Horse Soldiers

    Ford's only Civil War film and not his best, but entertains solely due to Wayne.
