When British P.O.W.s build a vital railway bridge in enemy occupied Burma, Allied commandos are assigned to destroy it in David Lean's epic World War II adventure The Bridge on the River Kwai. Spectacularly produced, The Bridge on the River Kwai captured the imagination of the public and won seven 1957 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Alec Guinness), and Best Director. Even its theme song, an old WWI whistling tune, the "Colonel Bogey March", became a massive worldwide hit. The Bridge on the River Kwai continues today as one of the most memorable cinema experiences of all time.

One of the very best war type movies to be seen, there are others I could mention but as this review is about the Bridge I will not go into others, to say I am a war movie fan is to state the obvious, anyway as far as the stars are concerend, William Holdens performance amazed me, there is not a lot to say about Alex Guinness as he gives a performance that some present day stars should watch, Sessue Hayakawa, every time I watch this movie this man performance never ceases to amaze me, all in all a war movie not to be missed, the directors touch is what is to expected of the late David lean, another classic job from the big scale movie Director.
