I enjoyed the film, and thought that the performances were great. Miller, Lerman, Watson & Rudd do have a good screen presence (especially Watson, Lerman & Rudd. The film gives a very well done insight on Charlie (Logan Lerman) a high school freshman trying to get over a loss after his aunt's suicide. He is noticed by a group of "wallflowers", most noticeably Ezra Miller's Patrick & Emma Watson's Sam. He has quite the connection with his language arts teacher Mr. Anderson, played by Paul Rudd. We get to see an amazing story play out, and we also get to see a troubled teen get a little better in the course of a single freshman year.
An amazing film led by Hanks (and it even has a bit of Diesel fuel how about that?) and the supporting cast is truly a great film. Hanks leads a crew of 8 men (including himself) and goes to save a soldier named James Ryan who's three brothers were killed in war. The movie opens on the battle of D-Day which is the most violent part of the film (warning). Overall the film is amazing, and should definitely be given some watches.
