Over-long and laden with the usual national stereotypes. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- The battle scenes are memorably staged and the major Hollywood stars fit in particularly well. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/4 -- Technically, this is a great, great movie. Full Review
Three Movie Buffs
Rating: B+ -- Produced by Zanuck, this WWII epic is the joint effort of 3 directors, no less than 5 writers, and numerous stars, including John Wayne. Full Review
Whatever his talent as a producer, Mr. Zanuck is no director. I'm sure he is an ardent patriot, but he has, quite unconsciously, made our own colonels and generals look rather silly. Full Review
A solid and stunning war epic. Full Review
