The Longest Day (1962)

Genre: Action/War

Starring: (Various)

The sole reason to watch this movie would only be for its historical significance. The Longest Day, is based on the night when the Allied army consisting of America, Britain and France, marched into continental Europe to gain back what they had lost in the hands of the Germans. The English Channel is facing one of the worst storms ever in its history, and the Germans don't expect the Allied attack in such whether. The Germans calculations go catastrophically wrong when the Allied invasion begins when they least expected it, which cost them a lot. In spite of being made in the early days of cinema, the movie looks as if it was shot right when the war was going on; no special effects, no bloody scenes just plain, raw cinema. In order to understand the movie, you might have to recall your history a bit as the movie is not self-explanatory and simply goes with the flow. Perhaps no other war movie has been executed in a better fashion in the history of movie-making. A must watch for war-movie fans.

Rating: 8.0/10
