Critic Reviews for Never So Few

All Critics (5)

The love story is commonplace and hampered by a noticeable lack of chemistry between Sinatra and Lollobrigida -- the war material is similarly humdrum until a late-inning development.

Good action scenes and some unhackneyed humor make the film worth seeing.

December 3, 2019 | Full Review…

an important drama, well-worth your time for the excellent cast. Essential viewing for any Steve McQueen fan. The story does drag on a bit.

October 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Overlong and remiss World War II action/romance film that never moves without a cliché for the stellar cast to kick around.

April 1, 2010 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The trouble with Never So Few is its inability to keep up any wartime drama...
