If you are a World War II history and movie buff you probably know of this movie and it is a good one to add to your collection. Amazing, very recognizable cast.

Excellent war movie about the Allied attempts to seize bridges in the Netherlands to hurry their advance into W.W.II Germany. The history is very accurate. The ensemble cast is fantastic: including such talent as Sean Connery, Michael Caine, and Gene Hackman. The photography and the sets are very good.

I had seen “A Bridge Too Far” in the past and watched it again in anticipation of teaching a continuing ed class on World War II- 1944. It never fails to be worthwhile. It tells the story of Operation Market Garden, Gen. Montgomery’s scheme to drop airborne units into Holland, have them capture seven bridges and hold until relieved by ground units advancing up a single highway. Like many other battles, things did not go according to plan. One bridge was destroyed before capture, and a Panzer unit had been pulled back for rest near Arnhem, the last bridge to be captured. Despite advancing through six of the river crossings, the heavy Allied casualties and failure to open the road to Germany’s industrial heartland marked this as the Allies’ major defeat after D-day.

The star studded cast depicts the savagery of war in exciting and reportedly realistic battle scenes. Perhaps the most important theme of the film is nobility in defeat. Despite the failure, the trapped paratroopers and their expected rescuers carried out their duties with determination. Ignored intelligence, unrealistic planning marred the operation from the outset but even at the end the officers had no consensus as to the cause of the failure. Any student of World War II in Europe will want to watch “A Bridge Too Far” again and again.

A good movie but does not explain the way that Montgomery forced the American Command that his plan was the best way to attack the German army. Churchill was responsible for intervening and convincing Roosevelt to proceed with this plan.

This is one of the classic WW2 films of all time. It can't be remade because no one could afford to put a cast like this together again.
ten years ago, or thirty years from now this will still be a great well acted action packed film, a must see for film buffs.

I had seen this movie a long time ago and enjoyed it very much, that is why I bought it to add to my collection.

It is the type of movie you can watch over again.

I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves war movies.

An excellent movie filled with important details that any history buff, old or young, would appreciate. Bravery, humour, crazy courage and
a cast of characters make this movie riveting to watch. It is action oriented and the music score is great.
