"Brutally realistic, brilliantly executed war epic. A must see!"
5 stars"

This war epic stands on it's own as the most harrowingly realistic representation of WW2 combat – even to this day. The scale, attention to detail, historical accuracy, characters and story make for engrossing and often disturbing viewing. A beautifully polished piece of work, it provides an engrossing and terrifying insight into what American GIs experienced during the 1944 invasion of Hitler's fortress Europe. Not just a must see, but a must own!

Description

Saving Private Ryan – Special Edition (2 Disc Set)

Internationally acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, Saving Private Ryan, directed by Steven Spielberg, is an unforgettable film achievement that has had a profound and lasting impact throughout the world.

Seen through the eyes of a squad of American soldiers, the story begins with World War II's historic D-Day invasion, then moves beyond the beach as the men embark on a dangerous special mission. Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) must take his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan (Matt Damon), whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Faced with impossible odds, the men question their orders: Why are eight men risking their lives to save just one-

Surrounded by the brutal realities of war, each man searches for his own answer – and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency, and respect.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Saving Private Ryan is a masterpiece. It cements Steven Spielberg's re­putation as one of the seminal filmmakers of the era. " – Rex Reed
  • " An old-fashioned war picture to rule them all – gripping, utterly uncynical, with viscerally convincing and audacious battle sequences. " – Peter Bradshaw
  • " [Saving Private Ryan] accomplishes something I had been taught was most difficult – making an action-filled anti-war film or, at least, one that doesn't in some way glorify or lie about combat. " – Gene Siskel
