“ Уникальный фильм о высадке в Нормандии, снятый пятью режиссерами при участии эпического количества знаковых актеров. Отличнейшая хронология событий, показывающая параллельно действия сразу нескольких боевых групп — а учитывая суперзвездный состав, все эпизоды насыщены очень живыми персонажами и историями. "Спасение рядового Райана" многое подсмотрело у этого фильма, особенно сцены высадки на пляже. По-настоящему эпическое кино. ” - jvetrau

“ С документальной точностью воссозданная хронология событий в Перл-Харборе, начинающаяся задолго до атаки и вообще вступления Японии в войну. Здорово показана последовательность происходившего, много интересных исторических деталей, мощные боевые постановки. И что самое приятное — поскольку фильм совместного американо-японского производства, картонных персонажей и клише нет, все сыграно с уважением друг к другу. И взрывов больше чем у Майкла Бея. ” - jvetrau

“ Добротное военное кино про очередной захват и удержание моста, психологически важного для обеих сторон. Неплохие актеры, очень живые боевые сцены, яркие ключевые персонажи и неоднозначные события вокруг них. Мог бы быть отличным фильмом, если бы не многочисленные провисы и отсутствие ярких второстепенных ролей. ” - jvetrau

“ Очень и очень здорово сделанный фильм об одной из решающих морских битв Второй Мировой между США и Японией, снятый в духе лучших образцов жанра 60х. Обе стороны показаны достойно, воздушные битвы — одни из лучших, постоянный акцент на принятии решений в условиях недостатка информации полезен для трезвости оценки. И, что особенно приятно — четкое и понятное повествование без частых для жанра двадцати переплетающихся историй, за которыми нереально уследить. ” - jvetrau

“ Шедевр британской кинематографии, военного кино и инженерного искусства, который рассказывает об одном из самых известных авианалетов Второй Мировой. Построение рассказа, раскрытие персонажей, масса тонких моментов — все сделано эталонно, как будто читаешь мастерски написанную книгу. Особенно хороши последние сцены и кадры — (пока) не знаю точно, но скорее всего многие из известных кинообразов, связанные с авиацией, родились именно здесь. ” - jvetrau

Director: Guy Hamilton
“ Добротное и исторически выверенное кино о немецких попытках захватить Великобританию в начале Второй Мировой. Наверное, одни из лучших батальных сцен в воздухе, использующие к тому же интересный прием "размножения кадров" вместо убогого наложения фона. Правда, быстро создается ощущение что кроме этих боев в фильме почти ничего нет — их очень, очень и очень много, а их постановка достаточно однообразна. Зато много интересных деталей командных пунктов и мощнейший актерский состав. ” - jvetrau

“ Бездарное нагромождение обрывков сюжетных линий, слабеньких персонажей, глупейших даже для середины шестидесятых подобий спецэффектов, длящееся при этом почти три часа. При том что состав актеров очень неплох, историческая битва в основе увлекательна, а титры одни из лучших в истории кино. Ближе к концу проходит более-менее интересное танковое сражение, но в целом это неудачный комикс на тему Второй мировой. ” - jvetrau

Director: Mark Robson
“ Неплохой, хотя и не дотягивающий до уровня классики военный фильм, в котором Синатра руководит угнавшими немецкий поезд военнопленными. История интересная, хорошо продуманная цепочка событий, но все портят картонные персонажи — а это главная составляющая правильного экшна про Вторую Мировую. В то же время нет нудятины и глупостей, так что кино хоть и не захватывающее, но добротное и интересное. ” - jvetrau

“ Один из величайших фильмов на тему Второй Мировой, снятый по роману Алистера Маклина и один из первых, использовавших сюжет "men on a mission". Шикарнейшее построение и развитие персонажей, красивые греческие декорации, интереснейшее построение саспенса без унылых хичкоковских штампов (многие такие сцены идут вообще без музыки), ну а состав актеров вообще идеален. Отличный рассказ, захватывающая история — пересматривать можно будет часто. ” - jvetrau

“ Отменнейшая классика военной полу-комедии с бесконечно долгим звездным составом — полтора десятка популярных актеров того времени, включая Бронсона, МакКуина, Коберна — а это значит, что играют все живо, здорово, каждый со своим характером. Весело, интересно, душевно, бойко — золотой фонд фильмов 60х, да и вообще на военную тему. И хотя по общей атмосфере легкости не скажешь, фильм основан на реальных событиях, воспроизведенных очень и очень точно. Awesome. ” - jvetrau
