Time Out says

Three main directors (plus Darryl Zanuck and Gerd Oswald filling in), five writers (including Romain Gary and James Jones), a block-buster source novel by Cornelius Ryan, and one of the biggest all-star casts of all time (many of them with damn all to do) make this one of the last true war epics. High on noise, spectacle and heroism as the Allies invade Normandy, generally strong on performances and humour, but still over-long and laden with the usual national stereotypes.
