A war film you simply can't miss.

Possibly the most realistic depiction of gruesome war shown in film in Spielberg's yet another addition to his perfect films collection. I got emotional during the last scene in this film as it really makes you feel for the character. The story goes as Tom Hank's character is tasked to find and save the only Ryan brother as all of his other brothers are K.I.A. and Hank's performance as a soldier in World War 2 is possibly the most realistic as it shows the horrors that troops saw during the assaults. Matt Damon as Ryan is also very good as he was relatively young which adds to how young soldiers were sent to hell to fight the Japs. The last scene really hit the heart for me and creates the best emotional resonance. The incredible special effects really show the true gritty reality of war. This film is not like previous classic war movies such as Where Eagles Dare and The Guns of Navarone where they somewhat glorify being in war. Saving Private Ryan is among the greatest of Spielberg. Today, there have been similar gritty movies of war such as Fury and Hacksaw Ridge but for me, this is better than those. Overall, I highly recommend seeing this obviously take into count the lengthy running time but it is well worth it.

The only movie my grandfather couldn't finish

My grandfather fought in WW2 somehow surviving D-Day. He was apart of Operation Neptune and stormed the beaches of Normandy. He told us a lot of war stories but rarely ever spoke about that day. Before he passed away he did an interview with a local newspaper and detailed what he saw despite it being very difficult for him to speak about. He loved watching war movies... not sure exactly why. Some about that soldier life never really leaves them I guess. He absolutely hated Pearl Harbor cause of the horrible way they portray the military to be a bunch of toothbrush wielding babies who don't know what to do in the event of being attacked. He had a friend stationed there who lost his life and thinks that movie is a disgusting display of ignorance. Soldiers don't take girlfriends on private plane rides. And they most definitely know how to swim. Maybe I'll give that movie a good ripping one day.

But Saving Private Ryan was a respectable "I can't watch this" reaction. He said no movie has come that close to capturing what that day was like. He said it was too realistic. Whether or not the story is based on real or fiction, that intro was 100% realistic. I'm not sure if he ever did finish watching it but he appreciated it for capturing that chaos like no other movie has before. I watched the movie a dozen times now and keep it in my collection as a reminder of my grandfather. A scene he was technically in. Which makes me appreciate how strong of a person he really is.

War is hell and this movie not only shows that while being an entertaining experience but also captured what soldiers are left behind with. My grandfather was not afraid of anything. I've seen this man walk into a cellar full of black widows to get firewood and not even shake them off. The only time he ever experienced fear was when he went to bed. His nightmares of his time during the war would haunt him in his sleep. This movie helped me understand why.

Most important film in this genre!

Book-ended so deftly with genuine and heart felt honesty, this film is one of Spielberg's most important. And is definitely, in my view, the most important and impacting War genre film ever put to celluloid. From the gritty, in your face representation of what the Normandy landing was like -to which veterans in theaters often had to clear out for that harrowing opening, such that the depiction struck too real- to trudging into the unknown throughout war-torn France that Hank's character and his band of brothers face; this movie hits a combination of humanity and the brutality of War that everyone should see in their lifetime. Not for the violence of it but to honour the men who laid so costly a sacrifice.

A technical feat of filmmaking, as well as respecting the lives and the bravery of young men in battle against a threatening foe (Hitler's Germany), this tributes their legacy in a truly human way. Without cliche, without glorification, nor a hint of faux emotion. John Williams score drives this humanity throughout every scene, especially in the transitions to the next sequence of events. And Spielberg guides these performances with precision to deliver unforgettable, and harrowing moments throughout.

Thoroughly deserved Sound Design, Editing, and Director Oscars for Saving Private Ryan! A masterpiece. Enthralling. Engaging. Relentless in bursts, but will give you a handful of breathers and close on a tragic, if not reflective ending that shows the cost of War.
