Great action and unavoidable continuity shortfalls

on 1/3/2013

This is a classic war movie. Though lacking historical realism, its still an enjoyable film. Lots of tanks anyway. Big name actors (Fonda, Bronson, Andrews, Shaw, Savalas, and the like). Not really about the real Battle Of The Bulge, it takes some of the events from that famous battle and remolds it into a kinda 'what-if' story about a German armoured spearhead that launches an attack to cut off Allied forces, to buy time to build the new jet aircraft and nuclear weapons and win the war.

Editors Note
Note This World War II spectacular tells the story of the tank battles of December, 1944, in which the Nazi Panzer forces staged a massive last-ditch offensive on the Belgian front.
Plot Summary
Summary An action-packed drama about the battle that brought World War II to a close in Europe. It tells a tense tale of the complicated events leading up to that historical confrontation -- and presents us with a group of strong-willed, highly individual military men who play key roles in the shaping of their country's destiny. Foremost among them is Kiley, an American lieutenant colonel who must overcome his fellow officer's high-handed skepticism to convince him that the supposedly defeated Germans are poised to strike.

Review This 1965 war "classic" is a war film buff's The Third Man, Casablanca, or Some Like It Hot. It might not be the best WWII epic ever made (that honor, according to the same fans, is allotted to either The Longest Day, Patton, or Cross of Iron) but it is one of the most popular...Thing is, according to the buffs, Battle of the Bulge really isn't as historical as it should be. Apparently many of the facts in the film are distorted, or downright fiction. But that really doesn't matter here - this is an epic. And epics don't abide by the laws of the real world; if they did they'd feel grounded. They'd be tangible, in some sense. When Battle of the Bulge was released to theatres, it toured with a road show, complete with intermission. It was always intended as an experience, not a lesson. For the most part, it succeeds as a larger than life spectacle, but it's the very essence of the spectacle that negates any of the harder won truths buried in its showy meat.
