Saving Private Ryan has the most realistic war sequences ever seen on film.
Oh no, not another American sanitised war movie where the good guy always wins - WRONG!
From the harrowing opening scenes on D-Day as the American troops were massacred before they even got off their landing craft . . . to the final conflict in the French town, you couldn't help but feel as though you were experiencing their fear and pain.
Prisoners weren't always taken; wounds weren't always nice and clean - you suspect that this film came close to how it really was. And yet the film didn't set out to shock, but had shocking parts to it - the absolute knowledge in the hand-to-hand fighting that one of the Americans was slowly being killed.
In all of this, however, there was a story of good - saving one man's life after all his brothers had been killed in action . . . step up Tom Hanks . . . brilliant actor.
A must see film!
