From Amazon.co.uk

Fine casting, rugged characters and authentic military detail make The Bridge at Remagen one of the best World War II action films of the 1960s. Based on actual incidents during the final Allied advance on Germany in March 1945, the story focuses on the US Army's exhausted 27th Armoured Infantry, assigned to seize the bridge at Remagen, on the Rhine river, to prevent 50,000 German troops from retreating to safety. Lt Hartman (George Segal) leads the mission, while a Nazi major (Robert Vaughn) defies orders by attempting to hold the bridge instead of blowing it up. With strong emphasis on war's harsher realities, the film's compelling characters illustrate the camaraderie of survivors and the heroism of mavericks in the thick of battle. Segal and Ben Gazzara effectively convey a hard-won friendship, and the film's dynamic action (filmed in Czechoslovakia and Italy) never overwhelms the story's emotional impact. This is highly recommended. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Shock and awe on an epic scale 20 Sep 2011
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nothing that happens onscreen in The Bridge at Remagen is half as interesting as what happened behind the scenes. After shooting in Germany or Italy was deemed too expensive, to keep the budget down the producers decided to film the WW2 epic in Czechoslovakia, with the Czech government even allowing them to blow up most of the town of Most. Unfortunately they chose to shoot in 1968, and the Russians spread the rumour that the film was a ruse to allow America to secretly send in troops and tanks and occupy the country and that desperate Czechs were begging the Russian army to liberate then from this American invasion - which, as humanitarians, they duly did that August, causing the film crew to bolt for the border in a fleet of 28 taxis and end up filming in Italy and Germany after all.

A heavily fictionalised account of the battle for the last bridge standing over the Rhine in the dying days of WW2 when the Germans were turning on themselves and the Allies were recklessly racing each other to get to Berlin first, it's less A Bridge Too Far and more a particularly lavish old-fashioned combat movie with plenty of nods to late 60s cynicism. Director John Guillermin marshals his often impressive forces well, and the film certainly delivers spectacle - it blows one real bridge up before the opening credits and most of the town of Most for real in an air raid sequence - while there's some excellent helicopter photography in the opening scenes to emphasise the speed of the race to the Rhine and the scale of the film. An undervalued craftsman, his direction is the film's strongest card, elevating the film from its fairly predictable but decent enough script.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth seeing if you like WWII action films. 6 April 2009
By S. Nix
Format:DVD
This is one of those films you've probably seen bits of on several rainy Sunday afternoons, whilst channel flicking! It is actually a very good film with notable appearances from Robert Vaughn and George Segal.

It recreates the actual events surrounding the battle for, and capture of, the bridge of the films title. It is a well made film with lots of action sequences, quite gritty at times, showing the desperate nature of war, and the struggle to capture a key asset for both Germany and the allies. A small force of Germans lead by Robert Vaughn try to desperately hold back the advancing Americans, who are trying to capture the bridge before the defenders can blow it up.

It is one of those war films that doesn't make you think too much, but has enough depth to make you engage with the characters, with generally good all round acting and dialogue, but the real star of the film is the bridge itself - how does it still manage to stay up?....

Definitely recommended good action flick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not the most accurate account 22 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this to check up on a few things after discovering my Father was wounded near the bridge, not a lot of help to me but still not a bad bit of film making with a fair cast. Ok for the money

4.0 out of 5 stars The Amazing Story of March 7, 1945. 9 Mar 2014
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Bridge at Remagen is directed by John Guillermin and collectively adapted to screenplay by William Roberts, Richard Yates and Roger O. Hirson from the book The Bridge at Remagen: The Amazing Story of March 7, 1945. It stars George Segal, Robert Vaughn, Ben Gazzara, Bradford Dillman and E.G. Marshall. A Panavision/ De Luxe Color production, music is by Elmer Bernstein and cinematography by Stanley Cortez.

Film is a fictionalised account of the battle for control of The Ludendorff Bridge over the Rhine during the tail end of World War II.

A war film that's rich with action and no little intelligence as it views the battle equally from both sides of the warring factions. The bridge is crucial to the war effort to both sides, but for different reasons, here the narrative is a little complex so total investment in the dialogue is strongly recommended. The characterisations are high quality, even if the war is hell weariness of the American soldiers had been done many times before in other notable war movies. Guillermin thrusts the psychologically hurt soldiers into desperate combat situations, from which we the viewers indulge in seeing the survival of the fittest. A sweeping score from Bernstein, gritty looking photography by Cortez, and a cast giving good turns, rounds this out as a thoroughly enjoyable World War II picture. 7/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Insight 27 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The Bridge at Remagen is one of the few American films that gives the viewer an insight into the German side of things. You can nearly feel the desperation of some of the Germans as the Allies close in on them in march 1945. While Major Krüger tries to control his own men and townspeople he must also destroy the bridge or face death.
