Bridge On The River of Nevermore  May 25, 2010
In my view, the WWII accounting of "Bridge over the River Kwai" was a masterpiece, not only of it's time, but a picture that has endured all the years hence as a classic work of film. There was one glaring inattention to detail at the very end of the film - but it should be forgiven because many films of that era had similar omissions. I guess they figured nobody would notice and if they did, they wouldn't care.

The story revolves around Prisoners of War, captured by the Japanese and taken to a remote tropical island, with virtually no chance of escape open to them. They are soon to learn their mission as a "Captive Corps of Engineers": to "build a bridge over the River Kawai" the only obstacle standing in the way of connecting two points for the purpose of moving men and supplies through the jungle. The soundtrack was remarkable; outstanding in it's simplicity yet rousing; designed as mental "cement" to hold the desperation at bay; allowing the viewer the experience of feeling the unseen bond keeping the men held "together" in a united front against the enemy through the music as much as through the visuals. Nothing else could have done it quite so well for the viewer as this soundtrack does; like lemon juice in a vinagrette, it brings out the brightness; the courage that these ragged men possessed. The outstanding photography was truly beautiful - filmed in a tropical jungle setting, one almost feels the humid, sultry air, the agony besetting the soldiers who must endure through the weather as well as the trauma when they can barely stand, the gunshots that bring thousands of fruit bats bolting out of the trees into the air - starkly startling; a visual rush by the very suddenness of it.

In contrast, after Holden (Shears) makes good his first and only escape out of the jungle to the picturesque island base, the scene there is one of serene South Pacific beauty and tranquility - uninterrupted by the "real thing" and where soldiers "play at war games", preparing for that which they cannot hope to understand or discover in it's depth until they are launched into it; wherein there is no time to think, to plan; just react in split seconds and hope for the best, benefitting from the "make-believe" training if you can, dying if you didn't.

The cast of characters is splendid, and the film was peppered with Academy Awards well deserved in every category; with Alec Guiness brilliantly cast as the British Allied Commander Nicholson, who "goes by the book of discipline" in everything he does - and who is intent upon "giving the best performance" possible required of a military man, even if it meant doing it for the enemy - a mounting obsession that knows no limits; Suessue Hayakawa as the frustrated Japanese Colonel Saito who attempts to bring the bridge to completion despite his lack of engineering skills and manpower beyond the rebellious and infirm POW's he is expected to manage.

In one of the golden phrases, William Holden remarked during the last moments - "I've heard it said that in a job like this 'there's always one more thing to do' but I can't think of what it might be - except to wish you a long and happy life."

This is an old movie, but I highly, highly recommend it as one worth watching for those who desire to go back in time and discover for themselves where the "roots" of filmmaking began to evolve into breathtaking "special effects", "method acting" and enchanting background scenery.

Bridge on the river kwai review  Apr 18, 2010
We brought this film as we are going on a holiday to Thailand at the end of the year. We began researching Thailands history and came across this movie in an internet search one day, so we came to this site and purchased it!
It's a story that kept us interested for most of the movie. Towards the end it drags out a little bit, to the point where we actually had a conversation instead of watching it. Overall I'd give it 2.5 stars out of 5.
Don't Pay Extra For the Collector's Edition  Apr 5, 2010
I could have bought a single DVD with the movie only for half the price but thought I'd go for the Collector's Edition. In my opinion, the second DVD is not worth the extra money. Mildly interesting background material. The reason you're buying the DVD is to watch the movie on disc 1.
The Bridge on the River Kwai  Mar 24, 2010
I love this movie. It's probably the best movie of it's era. Alec Guinness and William Holden were great in it. There is a lot of action in this war movie and I would recommend it to anyone that love these actors and war movies.
