Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While the action is decent, the plot is just a little too strained, the dialogue too wooden, and Hudson overmatched in this John Wayne vehicle."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Theme of reconciliation between North and South is well-realized."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"John Wayne/Rock Hudson Civil War western has some good moments."
