Flashback Friday- Saving Private Ryan

Since the beginning of Hollywood, war movies have become standard fare for filmmakers and audiences.

But there are only a few that are as hard hitting, educational  and remind audiences of the true nature of war like Saving Private Ryan (1998).

Private Ryan (Matt Damon) is one of four brothers fighting in World War II. His brothers have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. It is up to Captain Miller (Tom Hanks) to lead his team who have survived the Invasion of Normandy, to find Private Ryan and make sure that he returns home.

This is not your parent’s John Wayne era World War II movie. This movie does not spare the horrors and the damage that war creates. It is a brutal, in your face and reminds audiences of the sacrifices that our military men and women make for our freedom and safety.

I recommend it.
