The 25-Minute Opening D-Day Landing Sequence In 1998's Saving Private Ryan Is My Favorite Scene In Motion Picture History.

Very enjoyable movie; though there were quite a few factual errors in the movie. From the start: Abraham Lincoln never wrote to anyone about the loss of her sons - never happened.

A great war movie but with some unseen flaws. First: the D-Day landing was a bit unrealistic. The driver of the boat would not in his right mind park his passenger load directly in front of a bunker. Just plainly unrealistic. Second: Spielberg always puts some stupid child element into every one of his damn movies. In this case, the German child and Vin Diesel. Plain stupid. The movie was great,

The New York Times
Steven Spielberg's soberly magnificent new war film, the second such pinnacle in a career of magical versatility, has been made in the same spirit of urgent communication. It is the ultimate devastating letter home. Full Review
