Most graphic depiction of war ever, blah, blah...I have to be honest hear. I heard all the news about how graphic this film was and how it caused people to be emotionally disturbed, so I was expecting to at least have a good cry. I didn't cry or really even come close to crying, so it wasn't as emotional as I heard. But, it still kicked ass.
The opening Omaha Beach sequence is amazing, like the part where the camera goes under the water and comes back up with bullets flying by, then goes under and back up, and does that about five times... that's amazing.
Spielberg did do a great job showing war for what it was and that's great. I thought this was way better than Schindler's List, but I didn't really like that to begin with.
Everyone in this gives a great performance and it will probably win Best Picture (which I predicted back in April), and a lot of other awards.
This is the type of thing they should show to High School kids at the same time all the military recruiters are coming in. They could set up a little stand with Saving Private Ryan and Born on the Fourth of July playing to show what happens during the war and what happens after it. However, I am now rambling.Pack up the family (except little kids, people get pissed at crying kids in movies in case you didn't know) and go see this.
