Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Wind And The Lion is a neat mixture of romanticization and realpolitik [...] The film is memorable for its action scenes [...] but also for the reflective moments from which those action scenes are born."
‑ Keith Phipps, The Dissolve
"A kind of big-budget, all-star extravaganza the equivalent of which we really don't have today -- and for which mainstream movies are a little worse off."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"An 'incoherent text' headier than any screen Kipling adaptation"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"The marriage of epic romance and the epic romanticization of brutality."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"A bogus history lesson that's a mixture of fact and fiction."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
