The action is flashy and intermittent, deliberately wallowing in a mire of revisionist grot, churned up vistas of European mud. Time has made it more intuitive and caustic a film, than its daft reputation might suggest.

A terrific guys-on-a-mission movie.

TV Guide

This humorous, lively, and entertaining picture could be described as a caper film set against a WW II backdrop.

...the filmmakers clearly intended the movie to be a carefree caper, and if one views it that way, it can pass an entertaining few hours.

A strange but mostly satisfying hybrid of WWII actioner and anti-war satire... [Blu-ray]

Nearly satirical in its overall effect, plot caroms between cliche dogface antics, detailed and gratuitous violence, caper melodramatics, and outrageous anachronism.

Isn't really about the Second World War, but rather about the senselessness of the Vietnam War . . .

Unclear notions of heroism and crime ... packaged as escapist, mainstream entertainment

An attempt to blend the war epic and the caper film that doesn't quite come off.

It was too crudely done to have much effect as satire.

Interesting only in so far as it reveals Eastwood's nonchalant attitude to the blockbuster.
