Technically, this is a great, great movie.

Authentic 3-hour WWII D-Day drama; no graphic violence.

A solid and stunning war epic.

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]

Produced by Zanuck, this WWII epic is the joint effort of 3 directors, no less than 5 writers, and numerous stars, including John Wayne.
January 19, 2006
Longest film imaginable at three-hours, which proves to be a hinderance.

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.

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.

Aside from a great war tale, Day also marks what must be the only film where you can see John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Fabin, Sal Mineo, Eddie Albert, Red Buttons, Peter Lawford, and Sean Connery all fighting the same war.
