Trivia

The Normandy beach landing scene appears to be a combination of the action on the American beaches on D-Day. The heavy casualties, bunkers and beach obstacles is a staple of Omaha Beach, while the men assaulting the beach wear 4th Infantry Division patches, which attacked Utah Beach. Lastly, the climbing up the cliff using ropes are from the assault on Pointe Du Hoc, between the Utah and Omaha beaches. See more »

Goofs

B-17 Flying Fortresses are seen as the only Allied bomber to bomb the beaches on 06 June 1944, when many Allied aircraft did so. Furthermore, one of the CGI B-17s wears the group and aircraft letters ("DF A") of the "Memphis Belle" circa Spring 1943. The "Belle" of course was back in the USA in June 1944, and all American aircraft wore different insignia than the 1943 ones shown. See more »

Epic, beautiful story
28 April 2013 | by (SoCal) – See all my reviews

there's not much to say about this movie aside from it the best war movie ever made. it is very unique and original in its plot. its also very touching at many parts. the characters are developed well despite the fast pace.

the battle scenes are the most realistic and intense that I've ever seen of any war film. i even rank "my way" above "tae guk gi", although the latter still comes in a very close second.

saying this movie is an epic masterpiece is like saying the sun is hot. "my way" beats out any war drama that I've ever seen hands down. 10/10 stars from me.
