One of the benchmark war films of all time that brings as much emotion and passion to the table as it does explosions. The film has been awesomely restored in this version and released in widescreen for the first time ever

Bridge on the River Kwai is the first film that I've been tempted to start off my review with "It is my honor to present to you..." It's one of a handful of films that can be considered a monumental classic.

The Bridge on the River Kwai provides ample testimony to the moment when Lean's epic impulse exploded -- and he made all the world his soundstage.
