Audience Reviews for Northwest Passage

  • Feb 18, 2021
    With "epic" laced throughout this production, at least in intention, about the "heroic nation-builders struggles with bloodthirsty savages", this is more Hollywood flag-waving propaganda played big, subtlety not even a consideration. The French - Indian Wars of the early United States don't often get the film treatment, making this one a rarity. Spencer Tracy is properly heroic leading his men over-hill-and-dale against the odds, Robert Young represents the everyman perspective, and Walter Brennan leans towards his usual character actor comic relief. The battle sequences two-thirds of the way in make up for a lot.
