The Longest Day is visually stunning--its extraordinary camera movement and Cinemascope photography brilliantly augmenting the meticulously reenacted battle scenes. The only thing bigger than the film's scope are its stars.
90
It is hard to think of a picture, aimed and constructed as this one was, doing any more or any better or leaving one feeling any more exposed to the horror of war than this one does.
80
A solid and stunning war epic.
78
Just look at the cast and try to resist the testosterone pull of this movie.
60
Time Out
High on noise, spectacle and heroism as the Allies invade Normandy, generally strong on performances and humour, but still over-long and laden with the usual national stereotypes.
60
Empire
At three hours it does seem bloody long at times, but is still a suitably epic tribute.
60
Seen now, the picture is ludicrous, pointless, and stirring all at once.
