This is one of the BEST depictions of the D-Day Invasion. The details of the English, Canadian, French & German sides to the whole day's battle. A very good account of the History of WWII.

If you like war movies and ones that are all true, this is a great movie. Henry Fonda leads the cast of US Navy generals. It is one of his better film roles. A sure five stars!!!

One of the best films I have seen in this year. It was entertaining and interesting. Great performances a must see for all. Truly a really great movie worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. Well worth the price of admission to any theater

By far this is one of the best 'epic' movies Hollywood has ever produced; everyone and his dog is in this film and the fact that it's just the events shown from both sides is brilliant- there's none of the usual tripe of US war films. The Longest Day is up there with Bridge on the River Kwai, Battle of Britain, A Bridge Too Far, and Letters from Iwo Jima.

A marvelously well done movie-really shows the tragic happenings of World War II. John Wayne really portrays the strength of a general! I like in the beginning they have germans actually speaking in german! So many movies have different nationalities speaking English when it is not historically correct! This movie is worth the three hours! :) Great ending. Wow.
