Stevens's deliberate pacing serves the comedy remarkably well, although the action scenes are blunted by too-careful compositions and artsy cutting.

This is a pretty spiffing adventure yarn, with some classically staged fights, terrific performances.

As breezy as the pipe playing Seaforth Highlanders marching to battle without a care in the world.

A little jingoistic today, the film is nonetheless a critical standard-bearer of historical adventure flicks, and a quite funny one too.

If PC backlash makes such classics like Gunga Din difficult to revisit, so be it. At this point, there's no getting around it.

This hugely exciting adventure film was one of director George Stevens' last pure entertainments before he went off to war and came back as a 'serious' filmmaker.

Like the poem, the movie is sentimental and corny and totally absurd, and we wouldn't want it any other way. This is grand and exhilarating filmmaking that's hard to resist.

A really good movie. Watch this and 'Temple of Doom' back-to-back and you'll see a striking similarity!

Gunga Din has a bit of everything -- humor, suspense, spectacle, action and a heavy dose of racism, imperialism and xenophobia.
