Saving Private Ryan is not just the best war film ever put to movie screens. It is also one of the best movies of all time. The movie begins with an almost documentary type invasion of Normandy on D-Day. This is so realistic and so well done, you would almost think Spielberg and company had a time machine and filmed it the day it happen. The action is so intense and so amazing, you would think the movie would falter after this. But then again, it doesn't. This movie real story is about Captain John Miller leading a platoon of men to go save Private Ryan. He must save Private Ryan, because he is the only remaining son of a woman stateside. This seems ironic, because all these men must risk their lives for one mother's only living son. And as the squad is led through some dangerous turf, they don't know how much they will have to eventually risk to save one man. A wonderful told epic that just shows how much one life can really be worth.
