Perfectly cast, smartly written, and beautifully filmed, The African Queen remains thrilling, funny, and effortlessly absorbing even after more than half a century's worth of adventure movies borrowing liberally from its creative DNA.

An interesting historical artifact. In some ways it's far more genuine than films today, such as the depiction of the African natives or the dirt, grime, and sweat of the journey. On the other hand, the cartoonish green screen, unnatural conversations, and ludicrous ending make it more primitive and childish. Bogart and Hepburn do a fine job, but their journey and relationship is a series of discontinuous scenes without any organic transition. Still, I enjoyed seeing them overcome obstacles.

I saw this 65+ years after it was made so... The movie poster is far better than the movie. Perhaps its a generational thing.

A befuddling mix of high adventure, war drama, love story, and humor, all equally contrived and improbable, and rendered with sheer cheese. The repartee between Bogart and Hepburn is completely neutered by the feeling that this entire project is Golden Age assembly line, allowing no room for Huston's usually cerebral touch. It's easy to imagine someone in this film's marketing campaign giving the old stock line: "it's got something for everyone, action for the guys and romance for the girls!"

Enjoyable. The back and forth between the two archetypal opposites isn't the most nuanced, and the plot wasn't great. But this is one charming flick.
