Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lively Western full of events and imagery."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"Though not one of John Ford-John Wayne's best collaborations, this Civil War Western has some merits, primarily visual, but also thematic in positing the military (Wayne) verus the medical profession (William Holden) in terms of civic and personal duty"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Though flawed, John Ford's The Horse Soldiers has a fair amount going for it: the well-oiled partnership of Ford and star John Wayne (and an assist from William Holden); Ford's vivid visual style; and large-scale action. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Fine Wayne and Ford western with equally strong Holden."
‑ Steve Crum,
"It's a lesser Ford, rife with his backwards attempts at humor, but even a lesser Ford is still a film by one of the cinema's greatest poets. It's still very much worth a viewing."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"This is a quintessential John Ford Western."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
