It may have been a big hit, but this movie stinks. Mitchum is good, but that's about it. It's fake and inaccurate, not to mention boring. Even when there is action, it so fake you won't care. I don't even know why it's called Anzio. It focuses on 7 GIs who survive an enemy ambush and try to get back to their lines. Bad script doesn't help. Inaccuracies include helipads on WW2-era ships and Americans with British WW1 rifles. You'll find that looking at the bottom of your popcorn bowl is more entertaining than the movie. I did.

Quite frankly, I was expecting this movie to be about the Anzio campaign. More appropriately it should have been titled, "A Day in the Life of Some Guys who were Supposed to be at Anzio, But, for the Most Part, Weren't". And, what's this thing with Robert Mitchum??, ... a civilian journalist conflicted about war who seems to be more in command of this squadron than the officer and NCOs. This is late 60's or early 70's film making at its worst. Sorry Robert. Even you couldn't save this film.

The Allied landing at Anzio was not unopposed. Allied forces were bogged down in trench fighting for almost three weeks before they could move inland against the Germans. In this film facts get turned around but the basic story is intriguing. A rather stoic Robert Mitchum plays a pacifist battle-hardened war correspondent who must come to grips with his own convictions. Under Edward Dmytryk's direction Mitchum's character seems to have more military smarts than the professionals do, thus making his character a bit of a conundrum. That's what makes this film so interesting. Peter Falk, Earl Holliman and Reni Santoni are good as the stereotypical GIs that Mitchum goes out on patrol and has to fight his way back with. Riz Ortolani created a good suspenseful score and there are some really good action sequences. The good cast, which is a great asset, includes Robert Ryan, Arthur Kennedy, Patrick Magee and Mark Damon.

Well folks, It's definitely not "The longest day" although watching it made it feel like the longest day. Robert Mitchum appears to have been either high or drunk while making this film. He literally just walked through the role like a zombie wearing a girdle. No emotion. Just read his lines. To say he was terrible is an understatement. And the scene with Peter falk in the back of the truck singing? Good grief! It was a living nightmare listening to him. It was even harder to endure than Robert Mitchums bad acting. The accuracy of the movie? What accuracy? Lol. The only good thing about this movie is Mark Damon who did an excellent job with the small thankless part he was given and Earl Holliman who also gave a good performance. Other than Mark and Earl? Meh. ..So because of them and the fact that I laughed out loud through most of the movie (which I'm pretty sure the director, writer, producer and the actors didn't intend for me to do and which made the movie more entertaining than it would have been had I not) I am going to be generous and give it 3 stars.

I like Robert Mitchum, but this older film techniques don't age very well. The acting is fine, but the production values are
over the top in this old school war picture. There are much better ones from that time.

I thought this movie would be about the Battle it self rather than a story about a few men who get cutoff behind enemy lines. Robert Mitchum is a war correspondent, who seems to be allowed to have access to top secret information about the allied battle plans. Peter Falk is a soldier who seems more interested in teaching Italian women how to sing "Bye Bye Blackbird". The supporting actors do a good job. As a war movie its not bad. The battle action seemed realistic. The story is alright and is realistic. While trying to return to Anzio after driving to Rome, Mitchum and those with him observe German soldiers building defenses to protect themselves against the Allies. So these few soldiers make their way back to the Allied lines. They must fight their way through various bands of Nazi soldiers to return home. One refreshing part of the movie was there were no evil Nazi's who spoke bad German. If you like war movies you should like this one.

CONCERNING THE DVD:
This is a pretty fair package from Columbia Pictures. It contains a nicely restored widescreen presentation of the film in its entirety, and in the correct 2.35:1 ratio with sharp, vibrant images. The French 2.0 surround track has more kick and dimensionality than the original English mono track. Special features include some rough-looking trailers for this film and a handful of other WWII movies, as well as subtitles in several languages. You can also find a full-screen transfer on the opposite side of the disc.

CONCERNING THE FILM:
(from my website, [...])

American director Edward Dmytryk headed to Italy to shoot "Anzio", one the most lopsided World War II epics to come out of the 1960s. Despite some good intentions, this film fails as both an anti-war drama and an action piece.

The film stars Robert Mitchum ("The Enemy Below") as Dick Ennis, a cold and cynical war correspondent that does his work on the front lines with the infantrymen. When the squad he is accompanying gets cut off behind the German lines due to an ambush, he must pick up a gun and help them fight their way back to Allied lines.

The movie has a lot going for it, right from the start. Every actor looks comfortable, especially Mitchum. Robert Mitchum has never been one of my favorite American actors, simply because he always seems to be acting - despite the dimensionality of the part, Mitchum can never seem to break out of a box. Here, he looks to be having plenty of fun and seems quite natural in the role. Mark Damon ("Between Heaven and Hell") provides the necessary dramatic opposite as an infantryman who can't seem to agree with Ennis on his policies.
