"A sweeping World War II epic, The Longest Day tells the story behind the Normandy invasion; one of the most daring and complex military operations ever conceived. Shot in a docudrama style, the film emphasizes several dozen Allied and Axis leaders and follows their actions during the course of the invasion. Featuring John Wayne, Sean Connery, Robert Mitchum, Red Buttons, Henry Fonda, and Roddy McDowall (just to name a few), the ensemble cast that’s been assembled is incredible. However, there’s a bit of jingoism going on, as the Nazi’s are shown mostly as incompetent and the American/British forces are selfless and brave. There’s also very little blood and carnage; which is indicative of the time in which the film was made. Still, the coverage of the various battle fronts on the land and sea is comprehensive, and gives a sense of scope to how massive the operation was. Though it overemphasizes the historical information over the storytelling at times, The Longest Day is an extraordinarily powerful film about a seminal event in world history."

"The problem with watching this movie today is that it depicts WWII in a way they wanted the (mostly American) audience to see it. All Americans are heroes, all speeches are grand, all French are resistance and, of course, all Germans are morons. In truth it is so full of inacuracies, bad dialogue and acting, cliched and dull characters that it does a disservice to the actual soldiers. But the same can be said of almost any WWII movie that came out of Hollywood in that era. Now, I know what to expect from those type of movies and normally I am fine with that because I usually see them in the context of it's timeframe but I could not bring myself to finish this one (I have seen it in the past before, though). While many US war movies are somewhat fictional this is about true events. I quit after the landings which where shown as, litarally, a walk on the beach. Now, I don't want to be unfair and rip this movie apart with a bad rating. As I said , different times. Just don't take this as a history lesson."

For the Allies as well as the Germans, it will be the longest day.

The events of D-Day, told on a grand scale from both the Allied and German points of view.

The retelling of June 6, 1944, from the perspectives of the Germans, US, British, Canadians, and the Free French gets an all star produ More
