... threadbare, run-of-the-mill war drama.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Anzio's not exactly considered a "classic" in the war-story genre, but it'll absolutely do for a rainy Saturday matinee.

Audience Reviews for Anzio

A excellent WWII movie about the Battle of Anzio (Italy) showing the landing and the days leading up to the pushing back of the German troops. Robert Mitchum plays a war news paper reporter who no only brings back much needed intelligence but he is also responsible for the removal of a General who drops the ball and could have march troops all the way to Rome with little if any resistance. Excellent overall War Movie, just don't make them like this anymore. Peter Falk also plays an excellent part in this movie , No less then5 stars.

Bruce Bruce

Super Reviewer

Writer Robert Mitchum takes a tour of World War II's most horrific battles in search of the immortal question: "Why do men start wars?" The answer, in the end, is quite simple.
