Critic Reviews for Four Men and a Prayer

All Critics (4)

A wildly enjoyable minor Ford work, loaded with all manner of Ford touches, and one truly disturbing sequence that seems to come out of nowhere.

Odd drama, with some powerful anti-war scenes attacking the arms trade.

The story is better presented than it deserves by a cast that is charming and a director who has a talent for eliciting snappy action scenes.
