"...Sodden sea captain Charlie Allnut (Bogart, in his most perspiration-filled performance) and prim missionary Rose Sayer (Hepburn) take on pesky nuisances like mosquitoes, leeches and WWI-era Germans....The relationship between the two leads is what keeps this old-school adventure feeling surprisingly modern. Their sweaty 'n' sour charm evolves into a love born of complementary characteristics, mutual respect and, astonishingly, equality; Bacall may have been Bogie's soulmate, but it was Kate who provided him with someone as flinty and resourceful as he was. 'The African Queen' remains, first and foremost, a star-powered slice of Hollywood comfort food. Huston and these two giants, however, almost turn it into a banquet." (David Fear, TimeOut)
