Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Aside from some expendable propaganda heroics, rousingly handled by Walsh."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"Desperate Journey was viewed at the time of its release as a ludicrous, comic-strip war adventure. That view has only been strengthened over the years."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Instinctive existentialism of a very high order, and a very entertaining adventure (1942)."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Walsh's desperately daft flagwaver often lets propagandizing get the better of its smooth running."
‑ , Film4
"Lively adventure."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
