The Wind And The Lion is a neat mixture of romanticization and realpolitik [...] The film is memorable for its action scenes [...] but also for the reflective moments from which those action scenes are born.

A kind of big-budget, all-star extravaganza the equivalent of which we really don't have today -- and for which mainstream movies are a little worse off.

Milius's incredible balancing act might have turned very rancid, yet miraculously his mixture of full-blown romanticism and a genial sense of its absurdity produces a deeply satisfying picture.
