July 1, 2014
Authentic 3-hour WWII D-Day drama; no graphic violence.

September 10, 2008
A solid and stunning war epic.
June 1, 2008
Though the film makes a few egregious historical changes for dramatic effect, The Longest Day pretty much lives and dies by its scale. [Blu-Ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 24, 2007
Produced by Zanuck, this WWII epic is the joint effort of 3 directors, no less than 5 writers, and numerous stars, including John Wayne.

June 24, 2006
Over-long and laden with the usual national stereotypes.
January 19, 2006
Longest film imaginable at three-hours, which proves to be a hinderance.
Full Review | Original Score: B
March 25, 2005
The longest movie; the stunt of too many great actors in small roles wears thin. Saving Private Ryan did it better and in much less time.
| Original Score: 2/5
December 7, 2004
It is, and will most likely always remain, the definitve D-Day picture.

July 8, 2003
This mammoth depiction of the D-Day landings is certainly impressive in its scope.
May 20, 2003
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.
March 10, 2003
Just look at the cast and try to resist the testosterone pull of this movie.
June 6, 2001
A far cry from the gore-drenched Saving Private Ryan, legendary producer Darryl F. Zanuck's heartfelt recreation of the D-Day landings is, in its own way, every bit as memorable.
January 1, 2000
Aside from a great war tale, Day also marks what must be the only film where you can see John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Fabián, Sal Mineo, Eddie Albert, Red Buttons, Peter Lawford, and Sean Connery all fighting the same war.
