Variety Staff Variety Top credit must go to the production. Nov 7, 2007 Full Review Tom Milne Time Out If you can believe in Sinatra as an 1810 vintage Spanish guerrilla, you can believe anything, but it's still a slog through a platitudinous script. Feb 9, 2006 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 2/5 Oct 14, 2005 Full Review Film Culture Staff Film Culture An effective, though shallow, filming of C.S. Forester's novel. Jun 7, 2022 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Its eye-tilling assets include mammoth cannon, which is far more interesting, in the long haul, than the celebrities in the cast... Nov 26, 2019 Full Review Isabel Quigly The Spectator The Pride and the Passion might have been, and should have been, something very much better than it is. It ought to have been at least exciting, which it isn't. The fault lies mainly with three things: the script, Cary Grant, and the music. Jul 19, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

Gary F The French wouldn't have made it in the old west as scouts. They couldn't track a canon and the hundreds of people pulling it in a mountain pass. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/24 Full Review Liam D A fairly generic historical drama with a good but miscasted cast Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie, awesome cast Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member It's like a three-legged horse: it'll never win anything, but it's still got charm. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Sinatra is nearly passable as a Spaniard, Grant is uninspired as a British officer (though they both have some nice action sequences). It's young Loren that is really worth watching as she deals with their egos & emotions. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member If you can believe in Sinatra as an 1810 vintage Spanish guerrilla, you can believe anything, but it's still a slog through a platitudinous script.
