This review is from: A Bridge Too Far (Amazon Video)
When I first started reading in honest, I was in the army (had to do something while standing in line). I read Cornelius Ryan's "The Longest Day" because I had seen the movie. I was surprised that the book seemed somewhat better than the movie. So, I next found "A Bridge Too Far" and enjoyed that as well. When the movie came out, I naturally wanted to see it. I was especially interested in how the movie handled the parachute drop. I was not disappointed. The actors were very good for their parts (especially Sean Connery for the commander of the British Paratroop Group. I always believed that Montgomery was lucky that he appeared on the scene when he did, that he was vain, and was not that skilled as a planner, which the movie brought out, and that he was surrounded by "yes" men, which the movie also brought out. To me, however, the biggest plus of the movie was that it achieved Ryan's ability to bring forth the individuals comprising the event.

This review is from: A Bridge Too Far (DVD)
Star studded cast for this movie. All the greats you would want to be fighting ww2 for you. A ww2 movie with the end that we can't win em all.
Sometimes it just a bridge two far. Recommend to be part of anybody's DVD war library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many fine actors in this!, October 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Bridge Too Far (Amazon Video)
Many, Many fine actors in this including Dirk Bogarde, Ryan O'Neal, James Caan, Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Edward Fox, Elliott Gould, Anthony Hopkins, Gene Hackman, Hardy Krüger, Laurence Olivier, Robert Redford, Maximilian Schell and Liv Ullmann. Too bad that the allied forces did not win, but Hitler's forces did not win either. Tremendous casualties, up to about 30,000 loss with no strategic gain. More casualties were on the Allied side. Some tout this as the greatest war movie ever made.
