Saving Private Ryan Reviews
It certainly highlights the fact that WAR is an awful nasty business that shouldn't exist.
Must have watched at least 4-5 times.
All pride and patriotism (and no allied forces) aside, this movie was beautifully done considering sets, camerawork and acting. It is now a timeless classic. You can watch 20 years from now and it will still look good and realistic. If you don't know this movie, put your smartphone aside and watch it like it's 1998.
After the 1st scene, I was exhausted!
Incredible movie by Steven Spielberg. As a war movie it is the most realistic and gritty movie you'll ever see. The Omaha Beach scenes are the most accurate and graphic depiction of battle ever committed to celluloid. Militarily correct in every way.
Great plot, with a great message. Very emotional at the end.
Great work by Tom Hanks as Captain Miller. Good support from Matt Damon, Tom Sizemore, Ed Burns, Barry Pepper, Giovanni Ribisi, Adam Goldberg and Jeremy Davies. Ted Danson, Dennis Farina and Dale Dye appear in minor roles. Even has some big names in pre-star days: Vin Diesel, Bryan Cranston, Nathan Fillion, Paul Giamatti.
