Movie Reviews

Radio Times - 10/10 by David Parkinson What an inspired pairing! And to think the roles of Charlie Allnutt and Rose Sayer were nearly played by David Niven and Bette Davis.
Variety - 10/10 by William Brogdon It is a picture with an unassuming warmth and naturalness...
Guardian - 10/10 by Peter Bradshaw A ripping, gripping yarn, a surprisingly erotic love story and, as it happens, a premonition of Herzog's Fitzcarraldo.
PopMatters - 10/10 by Bill Gibron As a paradigm of why certain actors and filmmakers remain revered several decades after their death or greatest success, The African Queen is more than merely exemplary. - 9/10 by Sean Axmaker These are not "pretty" characters, but they are beautiful and their affair is a natural force outside of society and the church.
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - 9/10 by Philip Martin of those films that have been so assimilated into the collective unconscious that they feel ubiquitous,to the point that even those who have never seen it probably feel as though they have.
Matt's Movie Reviews - 8/10 by Matthew Pejkovic The performances by Humphrey Bogart (who earned his lone Oscar for his troubles) and Katharine Hepburn, along with John Huston's astute direction has produced a high spirited and highly entertaining adventure movie.
Total Film - 8/10 by Neil Smith It's probably cameraman Jack Cardiff who deserves kudos for turning this odd-couple romance into such a colourful escapade through east Africa.
Creative Loafing - 8/10 by Matt Brunson Humphrey Bogart finally won his Best Actor Oscar. It's an amusing performance, though it doesn't compare to his work in High Sierra, Casablanca, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, In a Lonely Place, The Caine Mutiny and a handful of other indelible turns.
Daily Telegraph (UK) - 8/10 by Tim Robey [A] grand, propulsive and plumly-restored slice of Technicolor derring-do.
Time Out - 8/10 by David Fear Five minutes in, and cowriter-director John Huston has already set the stage for something besides your typical '50s jungle-bwana boogie.
Slant Magazine - 8/10 by Matthew Connolly Huston understands the majestic savagery of his surroundings well enough to let it exert some dramatic pressure on what is primarily a buoyant romantic comedy.
