Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The most kinetic of period pieces, the least pious of biopics, Walsh's Grand Illusion, an elegy for men trying to hang on to the notion of blood sports as games of honor"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"...has all the exuberance, excitement, romance, and high good humor that is missing in many of today's so-called inspirational sports films."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Superior -- if largely fact-free -- biopic with Flynn as the character should have been rather than as he was."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Walsh trusts his viewers to value ability and wit over humility and pathos, resulting in one of the most roundly entertaining of all sports films."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
"Errol Flynn excels as the brash, social-climbing Corbett."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"One of the most lovable, funny and enthusiastic of all film biographies."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Romanticized Jim Corbett boxing fable; Flynn is still fun to watch."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
