Aro Recommended Saving Private Ryan


USA 1998, 169 minutes
Dir. Steven Spielberg
Genres: Action/Adventure / War


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.
