"Saving Private Ryan Is one of the best war movie."

Tom Hanks, this name does not require any introduction. Being a movie lover, I am fan of Tom Hanks. But this movie is not like the usual Tom Hanks movies. Extraordinary plot and marvelous acting by each and every actor has made this film an epic. And Undoubtedly Tom Hanks was at his best. The movie is about Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) who takes his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan, whose three brothers have been killed in combat.

If you like war movies, then Saving Private Ryan is a must watch. And if you don't like war movies, still you should watch this movie because this is not an ordinary movie.

The movie was released in the year 1998 but I watched around 4-5 moths back and trust me every penny is worth paying for this money.

    Sorry, but apart from telling us that Tom Cruise is in it, I learned almost nothing about this film here. R.

Manufacturer's product description

Director Steven Spielberg's World War II tour de force chronicles the journey of a GI squad on a dangerous mission behind enemy lines. Led by Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks), the unit is under orders to track down a soldier, Private Ryan (Matt Damon), so he might return home to his mother in America, where she is grieving the unimaginable loss of her three other sons to the war. The first unforgettable 20 minutes of SAVING PRIVATE RYAN realistically and horrifically depicts the Normandy invasion as Miller. his second-in-command, Sergeant Horvath (Tom Sizemore), and the others in the unit land at Omaha Beach. Before the film began shooting, Hanks and the actors in his squad went through a one-week boot camp in the woods. All the actors, except Hanks, wanted to quit, but Hanks rallied their spirits by reminding them of the incredible tribulations endured by the real veterans of World War II. Production designer Tom Sanders found a beach in Ireland that perfectly matched the landscape of Normandy's. Spielberg gave great credit to the Irish army who helped re-create the Omaha Beach scenes.
