  • 'A Bridge Too Far' is a decent WWII film, ambitious yet uneven; a rental suggested.

    Disc Release Date


  • Video: 56

  • Despite initial low expectations, the Blu-ray release of 'A Bridge Too Far' impresses with a better-than-DVD quality, 1080p/MPEG-2 video, despite some blemishes and a muted palette. It's film-like with accurate fleshtones, though occasionally soft due to filters and weather effects, and suffers slight posterization and noise.

  • Audio: 51

  • MGM's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track for an old film is front-heavy with minimal surround sound and some balance issues, yet offers robust bass and clean sound, despite its limitations and occasional distortions.

  • Extra: null

  • 'A Bridge Too Far' Blu-ray lacks extras, featuring only the HD theatrical trailer, plus promotional spots for 'Windtalkers,' 'Flyboys,' and the unannounced 'Platoon' Blu-ray.

  • Movie: 49

  • A Bridge Too Far," despite its all-star cast and ambitious portrayal of Operation Market Garden, struggles with pacing and coherence, yet captures the futility and spectacle of war.
