August 9, 2019
Whatever his talent as a producer, Mr. Zanuck is no director. I'm sure he is an ardent patriot, but he has, quite unconsciously, made our own colonels and generals look rather silly.
July 7, 2017
Breathtaking scope and authenticity.
July 7, 2017
Still holds up as the best D-Day picture ever made.
July 7, 2017
The battle scenes are memorably staged and the major Hollywood stars fit in particularly well.
July 7, 2017
Technically, this is a great, great movie.
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]
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.
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.
December 7, 2004
It is, and will most likely always remain, the definitve D-Day picture.

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.

Just look at the cast and try to resist the testosterone pull of this movie.
