Reviews
Average war movie.
Take away the gratuitously gory opening scenes, and what you have is an average war movie. Yes, war is hell, but just being explicit about what a bullet or shell can do to a human body isn't going to turn you against war. Personally I found this movie exploitative.

If you want to see what the effects of the Second World War were really like, then ignore the movies. Instead check out the classic seventies series 'The World at War'. Far more shocking and sickening than any Hollywood blockbuster.

What an awful movie (some spoilers)!
I was looking forward to seeing Saving Private Ryan. I had heard many reviews that called it one of the greatest war movies ever made. I was not expecting to see something as poorly put together as this movie was. From the begining I found myself wanting to scream at the screen. I must admit the acting was good, but they had little to work with.

Just about every other aspect of the film fails. It manages to portray D-Day as the smallest battle I've ever seen. Basically, the goal was two machine gun posts. Sorry, but that battle was not realistic at all and was intentionally bloodwashed worst than the Friday the 13th movies. The film is loaded with mistakes including the rediculous helmet rank insignia. They knew better because they told someone not to salute Hanks because it might give away his rank. Then they put bars on his helmet! Structurally, the movie was a disaster. It was supposed to be about the irony of many men dying for one man. In the end, though it turns into the defense of a bridge and the main plot is almost totally forgotten. The soldiers are stupid. They have to defend or destroy a bridge, but don't leave the detonator wired up and someone (who should have been Ryan) to blow it as a last resort? Every war cliche in the book gets dropped into this film. "Save my child", the wounded soldier just out of reach, the sharpshooter who never misses, "I'm not leaving my buddies", etc. They are all there. Did they have to end the the waiving of the flag?

The movie does not feel like WWII, but rather feels like Vietnam. Lots of mud and rain, "what are we doing here", a bungling military command. One of the most successful engagements in military history is portrayed as a confused, poorly planned mess.

The movie is absolutely loaded with red herrings. Hank's hand problem has no bearing on the plot and is not present when it might cause a problem. They fight a machine-gun nest for no real reason other than it provided a fight scene. Was I the only one to notice that all of the towns were destroyed before we even got to them? Didn't France surrender? The climactic battle is sure to be lost, but is won when air support arrives. Of course, they did not call for the air support. Can you say "Deus ex machina"? Did we have precision guided tank bombs in WWII? Did our protagonists really have anything to do with the outcome?

I was shocked that this movie was not ripped apart in reviews. It has everything possible wrong with it. Is it now unpatriotic to indicate divel when you see it wrapped with an American flag?

Amazing in Every Way
From the invasions on Omaha Beach (D-Day), to the final battle in Ramelle, this movie was as action packed and graphic as possible. Anytime Spielberg and Hanks team up, it's pure gold. Especially this time. Personally, I was on the edge of my seat during the entire duration of this movie. If you're a war movie fan, I guarantee you that this will make the top of your list. This is as real as war can get on a TV screen. War movies completely changed after this film was released in 1998. It has influenced the film industry as much as any other movie out there. In my opinion, this is Spielberg's best work ever, as well as Hanks. There are so many realistic parts of this movie, it's insane. After all, it is based on a true story. People said that the D-Day scene was so accurate, it might as well had been real. When it comes down to it, this film is one of the most iconic films ever, and arguably the best war movie ever created.

still, it does seem that they could have looked at more
I would have given "Saving Private Ryan" a higher score had it looked at more issues abundant during WWII (they could have focused on the various roles that each country specifically played in the war). But don't get me wrong: watching the movie, you can literally feel the bullets hitting you. Tom Hanks commands as strong a performance as we can expect him to, and the rest of the cast also does quite well.

I guess that if the movie has any problems, it's in the characters themselves. Aside from the fact that the movie pretty much makes all Americans out to be good and all Germans out to be bad, the Americans are basically clichés. They're all wholesome, hard-working guys out to make something of themselves. Moreover, there's the wise-guy New Yorker and the cowpoke Southerner, and Pvt. Ryan comes from Iowa (read: America's heartland).

But otherwise, it's a very good movie, and it goes to show what an incredible director Steven Spielberg is (although I still wouldn't have given the movie Best Picture; I would have given that to "Life is Beautiful"). Also starring Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Barry Pepper, Adam Goldberg, Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi, Jeremy Davies, Matt Damon, Ted Danson, Paul Giamatti and Dennis Farina.

Littoral
Every once in a while, I go back to watch films that were celebrated in their time. These have to be films I saw when they were newly nested in their warm buzz, and which were conveyed as if they were a privilege. This is such a film, one that can perhaps serve even as the exemplar.

It was touted as (at last) a serious film by Spielberg, chapter two of his "real" film which marketed the holocaust. It had Hanks, who it should be recalled was more uniquely respected then than now. It dealt with a sort of real history with direct pulls on patriotism and something called valor, in a way that would make Sinatra and Wayne blush (or at least hiccup).

And its first 20 minutes was chocked full of effects that worked and conveyed a meaning of confused dread. It moved us all — how could it not? — and allowed the filmmaker to lazily move through an ordinary story, staged as if it had a different production crew.

Seeing this again in my own context and with the objectiveness of distance, I am amazed at how effective that opening section is, and how typically bad Steven the rest is. That first part is tense, tight and close. It is horrible without forcing us so close that we recoil.

You know, one of the biggest challenges in film-making is to introduce the audience to the world they will live in for perhaps a few hours — the film and the long tail of recalled experience afterward. Usually the filmmaker has only a few minutes. Some — especially when a strict genre film is coming — can even do it during the title sequence. We are prepared for this entry voyage; it is part of the contract we make when allowing a filmmaker to transport us. I cannot recall a film that took this much time to prepare us. Perhaps "Pan's Labyrinth," but that setup was disjointed.

So I have to admire Spielberg's craft in putting together a session that has impact, though it is all tone and no narrative. And I have to admire his ability to understand and exploit that twilight area where we are primed for such a thing. And then 20 minutes in, we start to ask why, why engage us? Why open us to be ready for something that matters and serve us bread?

Ted's Evaluation -- 2 of 3: Has some interesting elements.

Excellent combat scenes - unrealistic dialogue
I wish I could view this movie like the average moviegoer. In that case, I would probably have given it higher marks. However, I was in the Army and know that dialogue such as is in this film would be highly unlikely, no, impossible, to have been said in real life.

The hierarchy in the service is very clear: privates do not contradict, interrupt, defy, or in any way address their superiors as is depicted in this film. I found a number of scenes to be pure Spielberg fantasy. The scene in which Hanks doesn't provide the full name of the 'Ryan' he is searching for, which results in Hanks delivering the wrong information to the wrong 'Ryan', is hard to swallow. The scene with Matt Damon protesting when told he is being taken off the front lines is also hard to believe.

The scene where Oppem (or whatever his name was) protests against shooting the POW is absurd. No way that would have ever happened. Some of the other unlikely aspects of the film: Tom Sizemore throws his .45 caliber pistol at the German; four soldiers pull the pins on their grenades and drop them in the tank turret, yet none of them detonate. The scene at the end when Tom Hanks starts firing at the tank with his .45. In real life, he would have been dead by then after being shot in the back with what amounts to a high powered rifle.

The scenes after the Germans bring their 20 mm. cannon into action also didn't get very far past the GI's first encounter with the fearsome weapon. After it annihilates about six or seven GIs from one short volley, one wonders why the Germans didn't make quick work of the rest of the GIs after that.

The dialogue was also a bit too pristine for my tastes. In reality, GIs curse up a storm. These guys were a wee bit too polite and wholesome. Platoon gave a much more accurate account of how GIs actually behave.

These criticisms aside, the action scenes are well staged and evoke a healthy pulse pounding for the viewer.

The Most Overrated Film Of All Time?
It may not be the MOST overrated, but it's certainly up there along with Scream and Fargo and There's Something About Mary.

Oh what a battle scene - the fantastic motion sickness inducing cinematography, the masterfully overhyper editing, the gore, oh the wonderful gore. And so forth.

The Omaha beach landing was quite intense. It was brutal and affecting. But people just can't seem to get it into their heads that one extended battle scene does not a great film make.

After *that*, we get yet another version of a tired, clichéd mission movie, filled with your usual stereotypes: reminiscing about the good ol' days before this all ever happened, doing whatever it takes just to get home, blah, blah, blah. Also painfully stereotypical are the characters: we have the saddened captain who misses his normal job and life, we've got the hardnut sergeant, the Italian guy, the Jewish guy, the New Yorker, and so forth. And all the Germans are skinheaded bastards - and by the way, where the hell were the other allied troops? Oh, I forgot, it was the Americans that won the war (flag shots at the beginning and end are just painfully sad).

The middle of the MOVIE is incredibly boring. Pointless, predictable set-pieces are tiresome. The scenes in which the rattled soldiers tell little stories of life at home (the medic talking about his mother, Ryan talking about his brothers, etc.) are awful attempts at evoking sympathy and sentimentality.

Then there's the final battle. Outnumbered, the men revert to primitive tactics (a bit like Predator). Quite unbelievably, this lengthy fight is incredibly boring, and the one at the end of Young Guns is far better.

5 Oscars? Obviously due to the beach landing bit, they are mostly undeserved. Best Director - should have been Peter Weir, or Terence Malick. Best Cinematography - John Toll for The Thin Red Line, without any doubt in the world. Editing - Out Of Sight deserved this even more than The Thin Red Line. I suppose the two sound awards are justified.

For people to call this the Greatest War Film Of All Time is just wrong. The best is Apocalypse Now. This is not the best World War Two film either - Das Boot is. This can't even be described as the best D-Day/Normandy beach landings movie either - The Longest Day kicks its a**. To go even further - this is not even Spielberg's best war film. Schindler's List is superior.

To summarise - great beginning, but the rest sucked. If you haven't seen it, don't bother. Or, if you insist, watch the beginning, then leave/press stop. You'll be doing yourself a big favour.

Breathtaking
I have never been affected by a movie the way Saving Private Ryan affected me. That movie really took me out of my seat in the movie theater and practically had me believing I was really in the battle with John Miller. When somebody was dying in that movie, it felt as if you could almost feel their pain. Speilberg did an unbelievable job of putting realism into this movie with the camera-work and everything else. Simply amazing. An all time great.

Realistic, brutal and superbly acted, this film is a masterpiece
Saving Private Ryan is a masterpiece and one of Spielberg's finest Movies, the Battle scenes, performances and the film keeping true to World War 2 makes this a brilliant but tough watch. Here's why.

The story is good but could've been better, it follows a bunch of soldiers who lands on Normandy, France and successfully defeating the Germans on their first encounter, they must track Down a Survivor of the Normandy incident that happened earlier before they arrived by the chief of the army, so Captain Miller and his soldiers must get Private James Ryan, the Survivor back home and end the war in Normandy and World War 2 itself.

The film's ending is something i have to mention, it's so emotional and one of the most best bad endings of all time, where Captain Miller does Deus Ex Machina on an upcoming tank and somehow saves his teammates but he himself dies, and in present time, James Francis Ryan goes to his funeral and also tells his wife to say he is a good man, for all his work during World War 2, it's sad but impressive overall.

The Battle scenes are impressive, With some of the most realistic depictions of war ever put into film, each Battle scene is at least 10 minutes which adds to the overall excitement of the film's slow pacing. The film's performances are stunning especially Tom Hanks, all has their own emotion which makes each character interesting and refreshing.

The film's direction is as great as previous Spielberg films, here it's all done in a serious matter, where World War 2 is pretty accurate in this Movie than it is in real life. The orchestral is impressive, John Williams is always the king of orchestral Music. The Deaths are pretty emotional, and even myself feel sorry for all of the teammates dying despite the characters being fictional and i still had a hard time seeing these likable characters die.

Saving Private Ryan is a benchmark for film Entertainment and it is one of my favourites to this day. Direction, characters, performances, Music, realism, World War 2 accuracy, ending and the overall emotion to the Death scenes makes this a must-watch for anyone willing to watch a great War flick. The only weakness of this Movie is the plot, it's simple and has to have more focus on some of it's locations like Ohama Beach and that it is kinda flat in the middle part of the Movie, other than this minor nitpick, check this Movie out.

This film is a masterpiece. A tribute to the greatest generation and those who serve during WWII.
The fact that it didn't win Best Picture is outrageous. It was great from start to finish. The opening scene with the old man crumble in front of headstones is emotional. The music score by John Williams is amazing. That image became the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan, directed by Steven Spielberg. The film tells the story of a mission following the D-day invasion. The movie starts Tom Hanks as Captain Miller, a soldier's soldier, who must takes a small band of troops behind enemy lines to retrieve a private whose three brothers have recently been killed in action. It's a public relations move for the Army, but it has historical precedent dating back to the Civil War. His mission to find Private James Ryan (Matt Damon) and bring him back to the United States so that it can save the family's bloodline and help softly the mother's grief. Some critics of the film have labeled the central characters stereotypes. If that is so, this movie gives stereotypes a good name: Tom Sizemore starts as the deft sergeant, Edward Burns as the hotheaded Private Reiben, Barry Pepper as the religious sniper, Adam Goldberg as the lone Jew, Vin Diesel as the oversize Private Caparzo, Giovanni Ribisi as the soulful medic, and Jeremy Davies, who as a meek corporal gives the film its most memorable performance. I understand the everyman quality of the average soldier. There were also a lot of actors that you wouldn't have thought for once, playing soldiers as supporting characters such as Ted Danson, Bryan Cranston and Paul Giamatti. Who knew they would be playing soldiers in one of the greatest war film ever. I like how the characters were written with everyday blue-collar Joes. It gives the movie realistic. They are brave while scare. Good, but also bit morally reprehensible. A great scene toward the middle of the film represented the questioning of their own morals when it conflict the attitudes of the war when the group captured a German Soldier. All of them has to debate if they should just murder the man or set the man free. It's toward the middle of the film, that the violence of the film dies down enough, to get a few character development. It was strong enough time to make them seem like people with the amount of screen time they got here. Some people thinks that the movie glorified war or it's over patriotism. I think some critics seriously misinterpreted this movie if they think it glorified war. In movies that glorify war, there are ridiculous outlandish characters that simply don't represent the soldiers who fought in war. In Saving Private Ryan, the characters are down-to-earth-ordinary. This movie also shows that in war, there are no heroes who are guaranteed to survive. It portrays war as what it is: violent and ugly. As pure hell. As for patriotism, I don't believe that the film is patriotism. There are scenes of American soldiers being as crude, cowardly, or just mean-spirited as some of the German's soldiers. I don't think the Germans are portray unfairly. About the fact that there were no allied forces shown was due to the fact that it is an American film presented to an American audience. Would it had been nice to see a British soldier in the film? Yes, but it wasn't needed in the film. The film made younger generations understand what happened that day and the sacrifices that were made in order to win that war, while also telling the dangers and how bad the war really got. The film was balance between pro war and anti-war themes. Yes, there were a few historic accurates that wasn't corrected, but overall, many people have call this film to be the most realistic and maybe the best war film ever. The first 20 minutes horrifically and realistically depicts the Normandy Invasion. The visuals are grainy, de-colorized, and filmed in a first person aspect that convey an adrenalin driven that been never witness in a war film before then, and since after Saving Private Ryan, many directors have used for their war films. The audio is astounding, and actually had me flinching during the harrowing first twenty minutes of the film. Exceedingly realistic and recorded in perfect three dimensional, positional audio that firmly plants you on that horrific beach landings. After this movie came out, I saw an interview with several D-Day survivors. They all said that the invasion sequence was the most realistic portrayal they had ever seen. It was like they were there again. That is strong praise from someone who would know. Every teen aged idiot who fantasizes on war by playing console games needs to watch this film. Show them how it really was. It's not what it is. Overall: It is a must-watch. It's a story of normal, average men forced into extraordinary and terrible situations due to war and how they survive it.
