On of the worst war movies I have EVER seen
I will NEVER understand the people giving this film a 7, 8, 9 or 10
vote. It's just beyond my understanding. This is one of the worst war
movies I have ever seen.
Why is this movie bad?
1) Lee Marvin plays quite good, but he is too old for his role, he
looks like 89 years and still running around dodging bullets
2) No story AT ALL, I mean, it got a story since it's WW2 material, but
they tell it in a very poor way, nothing happens and it the movies
NEVER has a thrilling moment
3) The other main roles are just played pure bad, absolutely no good
acting at all. I get no empathy over them, if anyone die, I get the
feeling of "Who cares? I don't even know him"
4) Annoying and screechy music
5) Difficult to keep track of what actually happens in the movie. First
you are there, then you are there. Where does that bullet belong? Who
did it hit? Who is the Germans, who is the Americans? Does the
Englishmen use American helmets now? Ahh, who cares. You probably will
get a good sleep until the next bullet fires.
6) Bad acting
7) Bad acting
8) Bad acting
9) Possibly the worst dialogue I have experienced in a movie
10) Bad acting
11) The actors who are supposed to be Germans in the movie, has the
most useless German accent I have ever heard in my life. You can say
they speak ordinary English with "und" instead of "and".
What is good about this movie?
1) Well, I guess the blood looked rather real
2) At least they tried
3) It eventually ends
Und for the record. Please don't get me wrong, I am not one of those
people who hates old movies und because they contain to little action,
to few naked ladies and so on. This just wasn't good.

Vignettes of the Survivors of War
The Big Red One isn't so much a war movie as it is a message, sometimes
obscure, of what war is really like. There is much symbolism in this
movie, for example the human arm, with a wristwatch on it, washing in
the bloody surf of Omaha Beach. If you want realistic detail of combat,
watch Saving Private Ryan. If you want to the voice of experience,
blurry from the passage of time, The Big Red One is a movie to see.
Keep in mind that this movie reflects the life experiences of some
survivors of WWII. That Lee Marvin was cast as the grizzled sergeant is
part of the symbolism: Marvin was a combat Marine who participated in
the invasion of Saipan; he is cast as a survivor of WWI who is
retracing part of the path he took during that conflict. I found some
of the scenes from the movie barely believable, for example, the French
insane asylum, but you must keep in mind that there is a message from
the survivors of that war in each and every scene. How you take the
message, apparently, is up to you..
