For a war movie, with several directors going at it - Ken Annakin, Andrew Marton, Bernhard Wicki - it would seem that the movie would be a big mess. It is not. It is a fascinating epic of a movie with captivating sequences. With these directors, we get a fresh perspective on the fighting during the D-Day invasion.

The movie was wonderfully written by Cornelius Ryan, with additional episodes written by Romain Gary, James Jones, David Pursall and Jack Seddon,

Actors John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda and Robert Ryan are wonderful in their respective roles. Many other actors who contributed their talents to this movie are also great.

If you like John Wayne, and war movies, this is the one for you. An incredible D-Day epic that explores just what happened on that day. A great movie buy! I recommend this to ANYONE

A wartime classic.   There are many good scenes in this movie accompanied by a lot of star power.   Combat scenes are very well done and follow each other seamlessly.  Acting and directing are both well done.  You gotta love the Luftwaffe's moment of glory in this movie!

I bought "The Longest Day" as an addition to my WWII movie collection, specifically to see how it measured up to "Tora, Tora, Tora", which in my opinion is a great historical movie. The storyline is solid history, but historical mistakes such as British and American paratroopers jumping out of British Lancaster bombers (paratroopers of both countries exclusively used Douglas C47's to get them to their drop zones) and the use of landing craft in the movie that were not in use until the 1950's make it seem like the producer and director did not really care about historical accuracy. The performances of most of the big-name actors are pretty solid, although there are scenes where it seems like the character actors are "hamming it up" trying to act like the "typical American soldier". These occasions will be obvious to anybody watching the movie. I was impressed with the Germans actually speaking German, not British actors speaking the Queen's English in German uniforms. The main complaint with these scenes is that the English subtitles are either too small to read without being a few feet away from the TV or the white letters are invisible against light colored backgrounds (the movie is in black-and-white). All in all, "The Longest Day" is an OK movie, but it could have been a great movie if a little more time and care had been taken during it's filming and editing.

This can give a person what the invasion of Normandy France was like. Vehicles are very ethantic and understanding the problems that people had to face during a time of war in Europe. The actors help make the film give it a look of how things were lead. This DVD also gives it a much clear look.
