Saving Private Ryan is a movie that follows the story of a group of soldiers in World War II who are sent on a mission to find and bring back Private James Francis Ryan, whose three brothers have all been killed in action. The film was directed by Steven Spielberg and stars Tom Hanks as Captain John H. Miller, the leader of the group.

The movie begins with an intense and realistic depiction of the D-Day invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944. Captain Miller’s unit lands on the beach and suffers heavy casualties as they try to take control of German positions. After successfully gaining a foothold on the beach, they are given their new mission: to locate Private Ryan, whose brothers have all died in combat.

Captain Miller leads his team deep into enemy territory, facing resistance at every turn. Along the way, we learn more about each member of the team and their past experiences in combat. Private First Class Richard Reiben, played by Edward Burns, is a wisecracking Brooklyn native who often questions why they are risking their lives for one man. Technical Sergeant Mike Horvath, played by Tom Sizemore, is Miller’s second-in-command and a seasoned soldier who has seen it all before.

As they encounter fierce fighting and lose several members of their team along the way, tensions rise between the remaining soldiers. However, despite these difficulties, they push on towards their objective.

When they finally find Private Ryan, played by Matt Damon, he initially refuses to leave his brothers-in-arms behind. However, after seeing the sacrifices made by Captain Miller’s team in order to save him and knowing that he is his mother’s only surviving son left alive during war time he agrees to return home with them.

The team then faces one final battle against a heavily armed German force seeking revenge for earlier deaths caused by American intervention during other conflicts around Europe depicted through series of flashbacks. In a final showdown, Captain Miller is mortally wounded but manages to utter his last words to Private Ryan: “Earn this.”

The film then cuts forward in time to the present day, where an elderly James Ryan stands at Captain Miller’s grave in Normandy with his family. He turns to his wife and asks if he has lived a good life and if he has earned the sacrifice made by Captain Miller. The movie ends with him saluting the grave of Miller, showing that he has indeed remembered the words spoken to him 50 years ago, and that he has lived a humble and grateful life as an American citizen.

Saving Private Ryan is a powerful and emotional journey through one of America’s defining moments in history. It portrays the bravery of soldiers during war time while also showing the cost of war on both individuals and societies as a whole.




“Saving Private Ryan” is a 1998 American war film directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Robert Rodat. The movie stars Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Barry Pepper, Adam Goldberg, Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi and Jeremy Davies. Set during World War II in Europe, the story follows a group of United States soldiers who embark on a dangerous mission to find and bring back a young private named James Francis Ryan (Damon) who is the last surviving brother of four servicemen.

The film opens with one of the most realistic and intense depictions of war ever put on screen. The opening sequence shows the invasion of Normandy beach on D-Day as Allied forces attempt to establish a foothold in Nazi-occupied France. The scene is visceral and chaotic as bullets fly past the camera and explosions rock the ground beneath our feet. Spielberg’s masterful direction puts us right in the middle of the action and it’s impossible not to feel like we’re there alongside these brave soldiers fighting for their lives.

As the story progresses, we follow Captain John H. Miller (Hanks) and his squad as they venture behind enemy lines in search of Private Ryan. Along the way they encounter numerous obstacles and engage in several intense battles which test their strength, courage and loyalty to one another.

The cast is excellent across the board with standout performances from Hanks, Damon and Sizemore. Hanks brings a quiet intensity to his role as Captain Miller while Damon nails his portrayal of an innocent young soldier caught up in a world he never wanted to be part of. Sizemore provides strong support as Sergeant Horvath, a grizzled veteran who has seen it all before.

One of the most impressive aspects of “Saving Private Ryan” is its attention to detail when it comes to depicting life during this time period. The costumes, sets and props are all meticulously crafted to create an immersive experience that transports the viewer back in time.

But perhaps the most impressive aspect of the film is its emotional impact. Despite being a war movie with plenty of action and violence, “Saving Private Ryan” is ultimately a story about humanity and the sacrifices we make for each other. The final act of the film is particularly moving as we witness the ultimate sacrifice made by several members of Miller’s squad in order to save Private Ryan.

In conclusion, “Saving Private Ryan” is a cinematic triumph that stands as one of the greatest war movies ever made. Spielberg’s direction is masterful, the performances are outstanding and the story is both gripping and emotionally resonant. It’s not an easy watch but it’s a powerful one that will stay with you long after it ends.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
