Here you're not simply watching a movie you're storming Normandy. Instead, we're suddenly transported onto the beaches of Normandy -- and later a fictitious town under siege -- in such an overwhelmingly realistic fashion that you'll feel that you were there.
US soldiers try to save their comrade, paratrooper Private Ryan, who's stationed behind enemy lines. Even after being bored for two hours by listening to some GIs I never really cared about as individuals and being numbed by countless scenes of bloody carnage, I have to confess that when Captain Miller tells Ryan to, "Earn this", I was actually moved.
Despite the name of the army who invaded Normandy being the Allies, only American soldiers are shown. Unlike "Amistad" where such grandiose moments stood out like sore thumbs, every moment of this film feels perfect. During their mission very personal talks tie them together as a team that can overcome all the mishaps of their journey through France.
Yet, for all the bravura cinematic virtuosity, this is by no means an exhilarating spectacle - subsumed by the sickening minutiae of combat, the overriding effect is exhausting, numbing visual viscera that leaves you shaken to your very core. Otherwise one of the best war films ever made.

The Observer's Philip French wrinkled his nose at what he deemed "flaccid discussion", while Empire noted "cheesy sinkholes in the script". You definitely won't forget this movie and its horrific scenes for a long, long time after seeing it.
Often it is the scene of their death. Pefectly balances the inhumanity of war and the humanity of its protagonists. This mass slaughter of American soldiers is depicted in a compelling, unforgettable minute sequence.
The dialogue fails to scintillate and only Tom Hanks and his irresistible likability manage to really make an impression. With most of the war scenes being shot with simultaneously rolling cameras from varying anglesfour time Oscar nominee Michael Kahn with victories for "Schindler's List" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" had his work cut out for him no editing pun intendedbut does a fabulous job and should receive another nomination for his work here.
The opening 20 minutes are among the greatest in cinema. I have always found myself attracted to World War II films.
The "last great war" -- as WWII is often called -- has been used countless times as a backdrop or focal point of movies ever since it ended more than half a century ago, but none have portrayed it as realistically as is done here. One by one, we are introduced to these men as they battle through the hell of modern warfare.
We then cut back to Washington DC and a female clerk, dispatching letters of condolence to the families of the dead, notices that three sons of the same Mrs Ryan of Iowa have been killed.
