Those that have seen it consider it one of Ford's finest achievements, but it's still a relatively unknown film.

Combustible Celluloid

Thankfully Ford skips his usual sentimentality and cornball humor and drives home a hard-hitting period drama.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Boasting top-notch cast, John Ford's very last, underestimated film celebrates the strength of women in dire conditions.

7 Women is, in actuality, a great film whose potboiler plot masks an incisive inquiry into the battle of the sexes.

John Ford's final film may not be his best or most memorable, but his way of telling stories about average people in extreme circumstances is still top notch. I was annoyed by some of the characters' delivery and some scenes were unintentionally funny because of it. However, once the third act kicks in, it is compelling drama until the bold final shot. Grade: B
