Winner of five Academy Awards including Best Director, the film also captured Oscars for Cinematography, Film Editing, Sound and Sound Effects Editing. More than 70 critics (including those at the Time magazine, USA Today, The New York Times and Entertainment Weekly) and critics' groups in New York, Chicago, Dallas-Ft.

Seen through the eyes of a squad of American soldiers, the story begins with World War II's historic D-Day invasion, then moves beyond the beach as the men embark on a dangerous special mission. Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) must take his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan, whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Faced with impossible odds, the men question their orders. Why are eight men risking their lives to save just one? Surrounded by the brutal realities of war, each man searches for his own answer - and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage.

Intense action sequences are the stand out feature of this one. Brutal but does capture the emotion of the characters very well. It's more than just a war action movie. Definitely worth a watch if you've never scene it, and on Blu ray it looks fantastic if you need to have a repeat viewing of this one.
This movie is not a 5 star movie if you consider just the plot. The plot is really ho hum. Actually, the movie itself kind of makes the point the plot is not important, but the characters and their experiences are. But if you consider the absolute horror of the combat scenes, this movie is not only 5 star, but the single best produced combat movie I've seen, and the most useful visual indictment against war I can imagine. Although I think WW2 was a necessary evil, please watch how horrible the fights are before you ever contemplate sending our young men and women in to those situations again. It should be compulsory viewing for all young people and politicians. I'm sure even this film down played the true horror, but just the glimpses we get should be enough to make us think carefully about any wars we might participate in.
One of the most moving movies I have ever watched. The actors starring in this movie (Tom Hank, Matt Damon) are both brilliant and will keep you on edge through the whole movie. Although quite depressing during many parts of the film, the action scenes keep you on the edge of your seat. Definitely in my top 10 must see movies.
Despite being a fictional story, this is one of the best war movies ever made. Saving Private Ryan has an A-list cast featuring Tom Hanks, Matt Damon and Tom Sizemore, and their acting adds depth to their characters. Not a movie for the family to sit down with pop corn, but to be watched with a quiet reverence.
