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.

A film that must be missed.
4 October 2004 | by jbanks711See all my reviews

This is one of the few movies I have ever hated.

The plot was contrived. Tom Hanks was flat. Matt Damon was immature and unconvincing.

Spielberg tried to make the landing scene arty, and even perhaps beautiful. It's too bad he didn't spend some time with the veterans who were actually there on D-Day. Maybe then he would have learned how horrible it was.

This film had all the earmarks of a professional draft dodger striving for redemption.

Feeling somewhat generous, I give Private Ryan a 2.
