Quotes

Stephen Ambrose: These kids didn't want to be there. Y'know, 17, 18, 19 years old, they wanted to be shooting 22's at rabbits, not M1's at other young men. They wanted to be throwing softballs, not hand grenades. But there was an evil force loose in the world and it fell to them to have to deal with it because when the challenge came that the society said to them 'you gotta go out there and fight'... and they did.

It's not about the film, it's about the real troops
14 April 2008 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is a special feature found on the DVD(please don't ask which one, I... can't tell from the cover) for Saving Private Ryan, and it's not really about the title in question at all, but rather the soldiers on the American side in the second World War. That should be noted by anyone considering watching this(well, it's less than half an hour, it's not *that* much time spent even if you don't care about it). It's not too bad paced. It's got considerably more non-Hollywood, "real" people interviewed, and time spent on such, than the actors and film-folk, and has several recollections from those who were actually there, their families/relatives and the like. It's about 25 minutes long. Spielberg does say a thing or two about his childhood and inspirations. In addition to the talking, there is also footage from documentaries shot at the locations during the conflict. It's all edited fine. The actors do say a thing or two, some of them. This is the only viewable extra on the DVD I have, apart from two trailers. Whether you're looking for, or trying to avoid, this, you may want to keep the title of this in mind when you look at the back of the DVD cover of any prospective purchase of... said item. I recommend this to those who want authentic tales from WWII. 7/10
