Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"John Ford's The Fugitive is as beautiful a film as was ever lensed."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Turgid, slow moving, lacking in dramatic tension, too grating and simplistic in its obvious religious symbols, and losing its moral urgency from the novel."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"John Ford has made a moody, grim film out of Greene's novel, feature a strong performance by Henry Fonda."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"John Ford’s underrated adaptation of Catholic novelist Graham Greene's masterpiece The Power and the Glory… softens and conventionalizes Greene's difficult parable, but still packs spiritual punch."
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"Unusual, rarely seen John Ford minor classic with Fonda."
