Title of the review says: One of the best wwII movies. I'd add a realistic war movie. Realistic as far as D Day can be depicted. Realistic as far as any war is horrible and conveyes undescribable harm and suffering to those involved and to family far away.
Consider BLACK HAWK DOWN (Somalia) more of a documentary, yet depicting war like psychology and resilient leadership.
How to avoid such destructive events? I don't know. Would you want Hitler, or Boko Haram, to have their ways?
And would they want our destructive megalopolists industrials to have theirs ?
It's important to remember that when he was first promoting it, Spielberg tried to sell Private Ryan as an antiwar movie, and in antiwar epics, American officers do blown-brain things like wasting lives for no reason. The reality is that most commanders won't send their men out on pointless missions, but don't try to sell that in Hollywood.
The story follows Captain John H. Miller and his team, including a sniper, a medic, an Arab, a surly private, and an acceptable Vin Diesel, to rescue James F. Ryan, a private in a paratrooper squad whose three brothers have been killed in action. A mission susceptible to much protest, and ultimately one that will cost many lives.
Everything about the movies feels as if it was done right. The overall atmosphere feels right, and it makes you feel as if you're sitting inside the movie--you can almost feel the moisture of the air seething through your clothes or the subtle sunshine warm your shoulders and forehead. The acting is very good as well, although you can spot some parts where improvement wouldn't hurt and it at times feels tacky and stunted. The direction is done well, as the actors can easily pass as soldiers, but the aforementioned cut corners could bring you away from the total immersion and feeling.
Saving Private Ryan is very worthwhile, and any war movie buff in his right mind would praise it as innovative and a revival of the genre.

Even though my computer [witch is old and it does play blue-ray disc this disc wouldn't play.]Published 3 months ago by James Kenneth Easun
Excellently done but not for the faint of heart. The graphic battle scenes give some idea of the horrors of war. Some parts are a bit hackneyed but , hey, it's a war movie!Published 3 months ago by 2BHonest
Terrific picture and sound quality.
The grainy, shaky handicam shots of action scenes are what they are for a reason, and the rest is crystal clear. Read more
