  • Connery Verses Denzel in Classics Battle – GI Film Festival | Reel Stories! Real Heroes!
    an incredibly polarizing subject in American history But A Bridge Too Far had a jaw dropping wow factor and addressed war from so many angles and cultures that it resonates with me to this day Glory made me weep for the state of affairs in nineteenth century America but A Bridge Too Far made me weep for mankind and then feel proud to be a part of it There is arguably no greater collection of legendary actors than A Bridge Too Far Sean Connery Eliot Gould Robert Redford Michael Caine James Caan Anthony Hopkins Gene Hackman and Sir Laurence Olivier are just part of the all star cast In some instances a lineup like this could spell disaster remember Ocean s Twelve But this cast meshed and played believable characters at a time when entertainers were treated like icons It s as if they all put their egos aside and said let s make a great film a rarity in today s selfish American entertainment industry What A Bridge Too Far offers the viewer is a chance to believe in whatever outcome he or she wants to If you feel war is the disgrace of humanity and want something to support that belief it s there If you believe war is an undeniable reality i t s there If you want to believe that even the Nazi s are capable of compassion it s there And if you just want to see a film about the good ole tenacious American fighting man it s there A Bridge Too Far doesn t lead you to any conclusions or try to sway you but instead lets you develop your own opinion and find your own moral lesson What A Bridge Too Far lacks is what Glory has a truckload of raw emotion
