Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Tranks's film, which should be catnip to students of military strategy, brings the great man's influence on the course of world events into sharp relief, even though Churchill's name is not mentioned for long stretches of the film."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"To its credit, and perhaps to the disappointment of some, docu never deviates from its central focus; its treatment of the Holocaust is always secondary to its portrait of an unquestionably great statesman."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"Simply ignores the unflattering facts."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"A handsomely produced, television-scale documentary with a split personality."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"A classy documentary perhaps more suited to classrooms and the History Channel than to theaters, " Winston Churchill: Walking With Destiny" nonetheless serves as an informative look back at one of the 20th century's most celebrated figures."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
