        "I thought this movie was not one of John Ford's best. Quite frankly I found it boring, and I do not like boxing in general so that turned me off. The guy is a retired boxer, even though it's a comedy drama. The actors are great in this movie though and the setting is nice I just found the plot quite boring. I would look for something different."

        "This movie was nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor in a supporting role, and Best Screenplay. It was also nominated and won the Oscar for Best Cinematography. I feel the academy overlooked some of John Wayne's best work and this is definitely a great Sunday afternoon film to watch."

        "Primarily known for his westerns, John Wayne is excellent in this atypical story of an Irish American boxer Sean Thornton who returns to the small Irish village of his birth. Distraught after having accidentally killed a man in the ring, all he wants is to be alone but finds love"

        "America's favorite golden hero, John Wayne stars in "The Quiet Man", playing a retired boxer who moves to Ireland and falls in Love. Also stars Maureen O' Hara who plays his sister who is struck by love on her own; sweet movie and highly recommended."

        "I've always enjoyed the cinematography and plot of The Quiet man, but let's face it, this movie moves slowly. The last 2 times I tried watching it, I fell asleep in the second and third acts, respectively. Perhaps it hasn't aged well, or I haven't."

        "It's funny, didn't know John Wayne can star in a comedy film properly. Not the usual western-style movies that you see Wayne star in plenty of times. A refreshing change though"

        "When first hearing about the Quiet Man i was skeptical because it is such an old movie. But this movie is entertaining and a must see. I was into it the entire time."

        "The Quiet Man is a classic John Wayne film. You enjoy John Wayne than give this a watch and you will watch it over and over. John Ford is a fantastic director."
