Fantastic film. Tom Hanks plays the leading role well and is supported by an all-star cast. A very realistic depiction of WWII and a compelling story set in the midst of a tumultuous and dangerous period.
One of the very best WWII movies ever done. I grew up watching all the great war movies of the 50's and 60's. This pulls in the best aspects of those epics and delivers. The courage and true heroism make the story. You are there, in your squad, thinking through the next move with Captain Miller.
I think this has become the number one all-time WWII movie. It combines action, with depth of character, gut-wrenching emotion and under-played acting in a way no other WWI movie has. Tears flow. Cons: We probably could have done without Vin Diesel in this particular movie. His portrayal was an outlier that detracted from an otherwise excellent movie.
