Aroview: Tom Hanks commands a squad assigned to retrieving a single man from behind German lines in WWII France.
With 'sacrifice' the key theme, Spielberg's show leans toward the mawkish and the manipulative, but does provide some realistic insight into unit dynamics and the inner conflict suffered under the most compromising of conditions. Primarily though, it's an outstanding technical achievement, punctuated by a series of masterfully executed combat sequences.

5 stars (Exceptional) A stunning WWII action/drama about the futility of war, Saving Private Ryan has some of the most realistic and graphic war sequences ever shot. The Normandy Landing scene in particular was groundbreaking and still holds up to this day.~Tom H
