The Reviews for Battle of the Bulge (1965) 1080p

Ah yes! The scorched plains of the Belgian desert...Reviewed byKEVMCVote: 6/10

December 1944. The Germans launch their last major offensive in the west. The plan is to break through the Allied lines at several points in the hilly, densely wooded Ardennes region of Belgium and make an all out drive to recapture the port of Antwerp, thereby cutting the Allied forces in two. The Allies cannot use their air superiority due to dense fog covering the region. The task of stopping the vast armoured advance falls to small groups of US soldiers making a stand wherever possible.

I really have mixed feelings towards this film. In terms of historical, geographical and meteorological accuracy, it's an utter shambles from start to finish. All the characters are ficticious (some are obviously composites of real participants in the battle). A fact already well documented is the use of '50s/'60s US tanks to represent the German Tigers and US Shermans. There is no mention whatsoever of the fact that General Patton managed to basically turn the advance of his 3rd Army through 90 degrees, then head north to break through to the 101st Airborne at Bastogne. Finally, to suggest that the Germans ran out of fuel and simply 'walked back to Germany' is plain insulting. The geographical errors are also quite glaring. During the first half of the film these errors can be largely overlooked. However, from the artillery train sequence onwards to the climactic tank battle, the terrain looks more like Arizona than the Ardennes! (vast desert like plains). Then, as if all that isn't bad enough, there's the weather. The winter of '44/'45 was one of the worst in recent history. In the Ardennes that meant deep snow, freezing temperatures and thick fog. Apart from some snowy scenes early on, there isn't much evidence of any of this!

Considering all the inaccuracies catalogued above, I should despise this film, but I don't. Taken on its' level, it's quite enjoyable. It has a strong cast; Robert Shaw and Hans Christian Blech are both very good, Charles Bronson was an old hand at these all star extravaganzas, and Henry Fonda exudes his usual quiet dignity. The script, if a bit hokey, is no worse than others from the period and the cinematography and score are fine. The battle scenes are professionally staged and comparison with modern war films would be unfair.

A point worth noting is the fact that this film has been cut in recent years. The missing scenes are briefly:- 1. The introduction of the Germans dressed as US MPs. 2. Shaw inspecting his tanks. 3. A conversation between Fonda and Bronson. 4. A lengthy sequence in Ambleve with a conversation between Shaw and Bronson, followed by an attempt on Shaw's life by a young boy. The boy's life is spared but his father is executed. The missing footage accounts for roughly 10 minutes of running time. The quoted running time on most reference works is 167 mins., which I assume includes the overture, intermission music and exit music. This would seem to be correct, for if my old widescreen VHS copy contained the missing scenes (the music is all present) it would run approx. 160 mins.(running time is speeded up on PAL). But I digress.

Overall then, a film with some very major flaws. If you're expecting a film in the same vein as 'The Longest Day' or 'A Bridge Too Far' you'll be terribly disappointed. If you can accept it as a fictional account of the battle however, and can view the complete version, then it's well worth a look.

Impressive cast let down by total lack of period detailReviewed byc_hookhamVote: 1/10

As a kid i loved this film. lots of knees bent running around heroics, big explosions and dastardly villains. Christmas TV gave me a chance to catch up on a childhood say I was disappointed is an understatement. After watching Band of Brothers and its stunning rendering of the Battle of Ardennes this sort of trite 60's pish leaves me cold. No period detail at all (60's tanks, wrong uniforms, no military tactics)and to top it all some comic book Nazi villains giving each other Sieg Heils all over the place (Wermacht troops gave regular salutes not the arm in the air-just watch old newsreels). The impressive cast seem to be going through the motions apart from Robert Shaw who comes across almost like an over the top caricature An embarrassing, infuriating insult to all involved

Don't believe a bit of what is said and shown in this movie. It's all fake.Reviewed byphilip_vandervekenVote: 7/10

What can I say about this movie? A lot, but it wouldn't be appropriate to put it in here and I don't want to loose my right to put my comments on this website. So let me tell you this: This movie is absolutely horrific! Never have I ever seen a war movie as bad as this one.

You have to know about me that I'm really a great amateur of war movies. I've got several movies of this kind in my private collection and I'm planning to buy even more war movies, but 'The Battle of the Bulge' will not be one of them. This is just too bad for words.

For a start: Since when do olive trees grow in the Ardennes??? I'm a Belgian, I used to work in the region and I think I can say with 100% certainty that there are a lot of trees, but 99% of them are pines. And there's certainly nothing that looks like an olive tree to me.

Second: When you are watching the movie, one moment you see tanks rolling through a landscape with a lot of snow. Then all the snow magically disappears (the tanks seem to drive through what I might describe as some kind of desert), just to see the snow come back a few moments later.

Third: The acting! I'm not talking about the main actors, Henry Fonda, Charles Bronson, Robert Shaw, ... They didn't even do it too bad. It's the rest. How obvious can overacting be? Normally when a soldier gets hit he doesn't make a few pirouettes, before falling to the ground. They do not fall in a heroic but oh so theatrical way. No, they just fall down, the way the impact of the bullet or whatever hits them makes them fall.

I could go on like this, but it would take us too far. All I want to say is this: Don't believe a bit of what is said and shown in this movie. It's all fake. And the makers of this movie knew that too. At the end of the movie they give you the message that it is 'generalized' , as well as 'synthesized' to convey 'the spirit and essence of the battle' in which a million soldiers fought. Nice way to say that you know that you made a bad and historically completely inaccurate movie.

If you really want to see what the Battle of the Bulge was like, watch the episodes 6 (Bastogne) and 7 (The Breaking Point) of Band of Brothers! You'll see that war isn't about heroism and all that stuff, which they are trying to make you believe with this movie. It's hell, it always has been and always will be!!! They should have known and told that in 1965, it was only 20 years after the war, and not 60 like today! Today a lot of kids have forgotten what World War II was like, and they'll get a wrong view on it when watching a movie like this one. I give it a 1/10.
