Trivia

The "Remagen" of the film's title refers to a town in Germany in the Rhineland-Palatinate, which is in the district of Ahrweiler. Both the town and the bridge are actually located on the Rhine River. See more »

Goofs

When American tanks engage and destroy the anti-aircraft battery overlooking the bridge, explosions occur in and behind the battery at locations where a direct-fire tank round could never have reached due to the flat trajectory of the tank guns and the tanks being below the battery. See more »

Quotes

Major Barnes: Look, uh, Hartman, I know it's been a hard blow. It's always a shock to lose a buddy, a man you worked with and fought with. I mean, we're all human. I guess what I'm trying to say is... I realize Captain Colt was your friend. He was my friend, too.
Lt. Phil Hartman: Bullshit.
[Long pause]
Major Barnes: Would you, uh... care to rephrase that, Lieutenant?
Lt. Phil Hartman: You don't have any friends out here, Major. Neither do I. We can't afford them. Neither one of us.

The best war movie I've never heard about
3 August 2000 | by (helsinki, finland) – See all my reviews

This is a no-nonsense, gritty, thoroughly well made war film. As a recreation of war it is quite convincing, I couldn't spot anything wrong with the military equipment. The battle scenes are exciting and give a good, clear picture of the fighting instead of just chaotic shots of shooting and explosions. However, the people are never lost among the warfare. These are complex, solid characters, and the actors are good throughout. There is nothing superhuman, just individuals, very low on humanity or manners. Tired and ill-motivated Americans, desperate and scared Germans. Nothing glorious or patriotic: there is even a scene with American planes bombing refugees and Germans trying to protect them! This is not an adventure, more a depiction of an interesting situation and the people in it. However, the story flows on and there isn't a dull moment. Why this film hasn't acquired more recognition is beyond me. As a war film I think it is better than most of it's contemporaries, like "The Battle of the Bulge" or "Anzio".
