The film works better as a kid adventure film than as an adult one.

Fine, mediocre Disney from the late 1950s, celebrating Americanism.

Audience Reviews for Johnny Tremain


An enjoyable enough history lesson disneyified but most of the acting is atrocious!

jay nixon

Super Reviewer

The book was better.

Haley Anderson

Super Reviewer

Very well done Disney fare. While it's not in any way historically accurate, just enjoy it for what it is. When has Hollywood ever got anything "historically accurate." It's just not possible for them.
