Rating: 7/10 -- Through Henry, The Red Badge of Courage allows us to face the chaos and confusion, the terror and futility, of both large-scale, national strife and inner, personal turmoil.
Rating: 6/10 -- But, if anything, I feel sympathy for Huston. His true sin was merely biting off more than he could chew. Full Review
The Retro Set
Rating: 76/100 -- The fall and redemption of the protagonist, while clearly predictable, is still intelligently and effectively executed Full Review
Ross's portrait of cinematic conflict and compromise yields, in passing, a portrait of true artistry in movies that stands untarnished to this day. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Almost seems like a documentary in look, action, acting. A Huston gem.
Kansas City Kansan
Rating: 4/5 -- Despite the studio's editing hatchet job, this remains a powerful tale of redemption Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:
John Huston adapts and directs this tale of fear and bravery from Stephen Crane's novella. Audie Murphy, America's most decorated World War II hero, plays the untested youth first running from and later facing his fears, and G.I. cartoonist Bill Mauldin is his wise, easygoing pal.
