Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Wants to be epic in scope but ends up feeling like ham-fisted CliffsNotes version of a man's life. The film loiters way, way too long on Frank Wead's early days as a hell-raising test pilot, then skips ahead through long sections of his life."
‑ Christopher Lloyd, Sarasota Herald-Tribune
"Though sentimental as a biopic of Navy hero Frank (Sig) Wead, John Ford's film has old-fashioned charm, a result of John Wayne's lead performance and his chemistry with Maureen O'Hara."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"This routine sentimental biopic is directed with much feeling by John Ford."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
