Critic Reviews for Desperate Journey
Aside from some expendable propaganda heroics, rousingly handled by Walsh.
Instinctive existentialism of a very high order, and a very entertaining adventure (1942).
A rousing Hollywood propaganda World War II adventure film.
Desperate Journey was viewed at the time of its release as a ludicrous, comic-strip war adventure. That view has only been strengthened over the years.
Walsh's desperately daft flagwaver often lets propagandizing get the better of its smooth running.
Audience Reviews for Desperate Journey
Errol Flynn and Ronald Reagan star in a light hearted mix between the Dirty Dozen and Commando.
