Probably THE BEST war movie ever made. directed by none other than Stephen Spielberg himself and includes actors like Tom Hanks and Vin Diesel. The story revolves around a handful of soldiers who have just landed on Omaha beach and are sent to locate the last surviving member of the Ryan family ( a family of 4 brothers, 3 of them were killed at Omaha and the 4th one is the one they try to rescue). Along the way the team encounters various German patrols and outposts and the movie climaxes with a 1 hour city fight. this is the only movie which truly portrays war the way it really is. horryfing and brutal cinematography will keep you on the edge of your seat. definetely not for the squeamish. also includes a lot emoitional scenes. the movie fills the viewer with pity and remorse for the poor bastards who fought in world war 2. this movie definetely does not promote war and those people who say it does definitely have not seen it.
If you haven't seen "Saving Private Ryan" then get off your ass and rent it.
