The movie is a pleasant, inoffensive comedy. It's indifferently acted, especially by James Hampton in the lead, and it's too talky. It has some success with making its youngest camel cute - although not as cute as Benji by several miles.
Disney movie about U.S. cavalrymen who are short on horses so they start riding camels. But how many movies feature Slim Pickens, Denver Pyle and Jack Elam? A cornucopia of coots. [18 Aug 2006, p.1]
The New York Times
Hawmps is a long march on light provisions. Based on a tiny historical curiosity—an experimental use of camels by the United States cavalry in Texas in the mid-19th century—it should have been a nice small movie. Instead it stretches into an underpopulated two hours and five minutes.
TV Guide Magazine
This picture never moves past dull, sitcom humor.
