Since it was Veterans Day, and I thank all veterans for serving, I first got to watch Saving Private Ryan. Yes, this is an old movie but I never actually got to see it before this.
After watching the movie and researching about it, the movie for one is surprisingly accurate for the most part. Most Hollywood films about war like Rambo are usually over exaggerated but not Saving Private Ryan.
Saving Private Ryan is about how a small squad is on pursuit to find a soldier whose brothers were all killed. Tom Hanks lead a group of soldiers to find Private James Ryan and leads them through enemy lines to find this one soldier. Along the way, the squad will begin to learn to rely on each other and give each other support.
The movie shows the brutality of World War II from the D-Day invasion of the beaches of Normandy to the city of France. A long movie but one filled with bravery and courage from soldiers as they push through death. Directed and produced by the legendary Steven Spielberg, the movie shows almost every aspect of what to expect during World War II.
Steven Spielberg and others worked tirelessly to create an accurate movie. The Omaha Beach invasion, for example, was considered one of the best movie moments. Even how the guns operated were accurate as the M1 Garand, used by U.S soldiers, even had its signature “ping” sound.
I truly did enjoy the movie. Every part of it was enjoyable and intense, I also felt inside the movie at parts with bombs going off everywhere and bullets zipping by. This movie gave me more respect for our veterans as they sacrifice their lives to protect our freedom. I would recommend anyone to watch this, if they haven’t yet or to rewatch it, as it is a tremendous movie.
