Time Out says

Attenborough's trumpeted entry into the all-time blockbuster stakes (based on the book by Cornelius Ryan) is noisy and protracted and has a name cast list as long as your arm. Bogarde, as the ranking officer-actor, presides over the execution of Montgomery's bold plan to seize six Dutch bridges. It turns out to be an overworked, very old and very tired warhorse. Glossy, ponderous, predictable.

Nice guy Wayne

I cannot agree with the Time Out review. Attenborough out did himself with his research and direction. The cast also tried hard to represent the the real commanders inparticular Hackman and Connery (probably his best) and no less effort from the rest either. Taking the bridge was a failed attempt, but the film was not, even if it was not good box office.A very accurate film.I recommend looking up Gen/ Robert Roy Urquhart and linked associates on Google before watching it.
