      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...

      As a World War II war movie, Remagen is somewhere between the Far Bridge and the Eight Warriors of Kieborg. Like the former, it is based on real events, but has a relatively small cast; like the latter, it has a strong anti-war sentiment, but insists that the realism dimension is not so literary. Three and a...

      It's good to look at this theme,...

      3.5 The war scenes are detailed and beautiful, the aerial photography is impressive, the characters are a little lazy, and the anti-war angle is well done. The screenwriter is Richard Yates? Ben Gazzara's screentime is not much, but the characters are eye-catching. The three brothers are a bit interesting. '67 John "Twelve Kings", '68 Falk "Blood for Anchio", '69 Ben "Remagen Bridge", is this an appointment to go to the battlefield of World War II together, although it is three different films,...

      The value of this film is quite interesting, and it is a bit deliberately balanced. The Allied generals made great achievements and scorned human lives. The German generals were humanitarians who cared for the people; the soldiers below all had their own misfortunes. In addition, whoever came up with Robert Vaughn to play the German commander, he is the only one of all the characters who is not German at all, and there is no suitable place for his appearance, accent, and spiritual temperament,...

    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

    • 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.

    • Major Paul Kreuger: Germany has lost four million sons.

      Greta Holzgang: I pity them. But I pity most my own son.

    • Lt. Phil Hartman: You got your camera with you, Glover?

      Pvt. Glover: No, sir. I kinda sold it back to Sergeant Angel.

      Lt. Phil Hartman: When the Krauts blow that bridge, that's gonna be some picture.
