Jeff Bridges is in his element. Love the movie. 5 star by me.

White Squall is Dead Poets Socity on board. But simply this is Jeff Bridges' best movie!

Washington Post
Todd Robinson's script, alas, drags White Squall down. As directed by Ridley Scott, with a surplus of intrusive music and some manic overacting, the movie dips into cliches. [02 Feb 1996] Full Review
Brian Lowry
Director Ridley Scott's lavish production isn't totally satisfying, coasting aimlessly at times before suddenly leaping to a more intense dramatic plane. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
The 20 or so minutes we spend with the Albatross in the squall is high adventure, to be sure. Everything else is ballast. Full Review
James Berardinelli
White Squall is a success because the good elements are so well-orchestrated that they dwarf the few obvious flaws. This film offers just about everything, including a twenty-minute white-knuckle sequence and a chance to shed a few tears. In short, it's first-rate entertainment. Full Review
Janet Maslin
The New York Times
Despite great scenery, the distinctive visual ideas of Mr. Scott ("Alien," "Blade Runner") and the strong dramatic presence of Mr. Bridges, most of White Squall remains listless and tame. Full Review
