    Although it has faults, some of the scenes are superb, the overall story is reasonably accurate, and it was the last movie war epic until 'SPR'. As always, though, it's much better on the big screen than the little box, especially when TV ads are involved.... [​IMG]

    I've always enjoyed this movie even if a tad bit long-winded. The opening British artillery barrage was very welldone.
