      Not particularly important, but the famous Remagen Bridge

      In various WWII documentaries, the Remagen Bridge is mentioned on the Western Front. The only bridge on the Rhine that has not been solved will be mentioned. In fact, before the bridge was fully controlled, the Allies had already erected several pontoon bridges downstream. The English Channel could not resist the Allied forces, so what about a mere Rhine? And the Remagen Bridge finally collapsed a few days after it was captured. But after all, the Remagen Bridge is the only remaining bridge...

      Only you have to win

      I don't understand why so many people rate 3 stars. At least in my opinion, "Remagen Bridge" as a war movie of the 60s has all the elements it should have. The plot is tense, the scenes are grand, the characters of the two sides are depicted with flesh and blood, and the thinking about war is everywhere. . . . . . Perhaps people have become accustomed to the modern Hollywood style of storytelling, and without a romantic love story performed by a handsome man and a beautiful woman as the main...

      The bureaucracy of TMD!

      From the map, the bridge was the only way back for the Germans to retreat, and it was also a shortcut for the U.S. military to plug directly into Germany. So the bridge was given special significance by the heads of both sides.

      Office of the German leadership.

      The German marshal wanted to blow up the bridge, but the general opposed it.

      The general said: My tens of thousands of soldiers are still on the other...

      just thinking

      A rejoicing major, a weary second lieutenant, and a philistine 1st class captured an unimportant bridge with dozens of casualties. A major who sticks to his post, at all costs, hopes to complete the task, but forgets the basic duties of a soldier, and does not realize "who is the enemy" until he is executed by his own people.
      In addition, I think General Brian of Germany has an obvious tendency to let American troops cross the bridge. From his understanding of the bridge, not only did...

      There are quite a lot of bright spots. Although the main scene is just a big iron bridge, the blasting scene is completely different from the rough and simple model, and the smoke and dust in the sky are extremely shocking. The soundtrack is also a huge plus, it's almost like it's copied from some pasta. American and German soldiers were forced to exchange fire against a backdrop of war weariness and fatigue as the war was coming to an end. After the killing of the Youth Corps soldiers, the...

      The irony is that the bridge, which was taken with all his life, collapsed into the Rhine after ten...

      In the 1960s without any computer special effects, it was not easy to shoot such majestic war scenes with real gunpowder machine...

      Four stars are mainly given to war scenes, especially various explosion effects. One star was deducted because the crew forcibly added extra drama to the film that was originally a pure war drama: a chaotic hodgepodge, which slowed down the main line...

    Movie plot

    This is a war story that took place at the end of World War II. A team of Allied death squads were ordered to guard the Remagen Iron Bridge, a strategically important bridge on the Rhine River in Germany. Seeing that the development of the war was unfavorable for their own side, the German army attempted to blow up the iron bridge to prevent the Allied forces from attacking, but the Allied forces did their best to capture and protect...

    Evaluation action

     "TheBridgeatRemagen:" as a work of art, this feature film has added a lot of fictional characters and plots, and the connotation is quite rich.
    The Remagen Bridge was occupied by the US military. "Like a scalpel, it cut a hole in the German Rhine River defense line!" More than 100 German engineers guarding the town of Elbore on the other side of the river launched a suicide charge. Almost all killed! The German artillery bombarded the...

    Movie quotes

    • Lt. Phil Hartman: How do you know Stadt Meckenheim isn't crawling with Germans? What if they unload on us?

      Major Barnes: Then we'll know, won't we, Lieutenant?

    • Major Paul Kreuger: So, Captain Baumann, I trust that in the event of an emergency, at least the explosives are in place to blow up the bridge?

      Capt. Otto Baumann: Not yet, Herr Major. It is reported that 600 kilos of high explosives are on the way. But perhaps, that TOO is only a rumor.

    • [Kreuger is offered a last cigarette before he is executed by firing squad. He and the Nazi Officer hear planes]

      Major Paul Kreuger: Ours or theirs?

      Nazi Officer: Enemy planes, sir.

      Major Paul Kreuger: But who is the enemy?
