‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"One of five masterful Westerns Anthony Mann made with James Stewart."

"Against Mann's splendors, as always, lie the elusiveness of civilization, the flux of alliances, and the purgative wrestling of warriors"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"One of the greatest Westerns ever."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
