A Bridge Too Far

Went into this not expecting to like it, but it was fantastic. This has some of the best battle scenes I've ever seen. Amazing cast too!
One of the greatest all star casts ever assembled.
One of the best War Movies to have ever been made. A classic!
Classic war film that lives up to its prestige. Great ensemble cast
A classic war film. If you like this genre add to your list
Love anything with Sean Connery and Michael Caine great combo with both actors and very enjoyable
This is quite frankly a masterpiece (my fav). If you don't often watch epic/war movies, it can be weird adjusting to the length/slow intro.
In the days when blockbuster didn't mean junk. Fun to see all the movie stars. Director R. Attenborough worked on it everyday for 18 months.
Few in the all-star cast make an impression within their limited screen time. The action is epic in scale but largely unmemorable.
Interesting film, learned some history I did not know about.
