"Saving Private Ryan" is a fantastic movie that everybody should watch. It has excellent acting and lovable characters. It comes pretty close to "All Quiet in the Western Front" which is the greatest war movie of all time. And that's saying a lot.

Awesome film
This classic WWII movie is an exciting and emotional tale of a group of soldiers who go on a dangerous heroic mission to save the life of just one soldier. The opening scene is overwhelming, could be too tough to watch for some. This is a long film...
