    Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan is a film showing us the realities of war. Winner of five Academy Awards including Steven Spielberg's Best Director (1999), it is an unforgettable experience. The film follows Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) who, in the brutally real opening sequence, survives the landing at Omaha Beach. He is then given a new mission: to find and save Private James Francis Ryan (Matt Damon), one of four brothers, the other three of whom have been killed in action

    Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan portrays the experiences of the mysterious captain John Miller and his army ranger Squad. The story accurately depicts what could have happened to a comparable unit mission shown had actually existed. No Saving Private Ryan character ever existed. Furthermore, it is unlikely that Saving Private Ryan’s mission ever would have been ordered. The mission shown is improbable because United States army sole survivor policy “is applicable only in peacetime.”

    Saving Private Ryan Not many Americans are able to see or feel war the way it is: brutal and violent. Only 1.4 million Americans are enlisted in the armed forces.

When a movie is able to plunge you onto a landing craft in the English channel and you are able to watch men puke from sea sickness and hear the distant explosions- it’s hard to not feel like you are really there. Saving Private Ryan excels at making you feel like you’re a soldier,

    great studio details, they lack in historical significance. One movie in particular I want to discuss is the Oscar nominated movie “Saving Private Ryan” directed by Steven Spielberg.

    Saving Private Ryan is a movie that generates strong responses from most people that see it. While interviewing four individuals and reading three movie reviews, I found that each of my subjects would recommend it, not one of the individuals interviewed felt the violence was senseless, and all of them left the movie with a strong emotional response of some kind. It appears that Saving Private Ryan is the kind of movie to which many can relate. Saving Private Ryan is not a romantic, feel-good movie
