You might wanna play “Call of Duty 2(TM)” after watch this movie, because almost the same scene as in Saving private Ryan (1998). If you watch this movie with best quality and sound output, 99% you will feel in real war, the 1%??? you don’t bleed, you don’t tired and you don’t even have to touch the gun.
What happend on 06 June 1944?? is the D-Day invation of America againts Nazi Europe in Normandy (Omaha Beach).
In the very beginning of the movie, you will be shown “real war”, machine guns from the Nazi Europe soldiers who opened fire to American armys on a hill close to the beach, mines and grenades that exploded so that some soldiers had to bear the pain of losing their hands and feet, even down to see their guts out. Capt. John H. Miller (Tom Hanks) and some men from his squad survive from that invation that day. And the next day, He and his squad was ordered to bring home Pvt. James Francis Ryan (Matt Damon).
The United States Army Chief of Staff, George C. Marshall, is given an opportunity to alleviate some of her grief when he learns of a fourth brother, Pvt. James Francis Ryan, and decides to send out 8 men (Cpt. Miller and select members from 2nd Rangers) to find him and bring him back home to his mother.
One of part of the movie when Cpt. Miller said at night when he and the rest of the squad take a rest in church, “He (James Francis Ryan) better be worth it. He better go home and cure a disease, or invent a longer-lasting light bulb, because the truth is I don’t want to trade 10 Ryan for 1 Vecchio or 1 Caparzo”. Vecchio and Caparzo (Vin Diesel) is one of his squad who died in mission to bring home Pvt. James private Ryan.
The end of movie??? Ryan, now seen as an old man revisiting the military cemetery at Normandy, visits the grave of Capt. Miller and tells his rescuer that he has tried to live a good life in exchange for the sacrifice of Miller and the rest. Overall its is worth seeing. [IMDB]
