Movie Review #323: Saving Private Ryan (1998)

A 160-minute example of how a great director and a great cast can do wonders

From the get-go we’re given no room to breathe as the film drops us off straight to the battle of Normandy. And from there on it just gets better and better. The sound editing, cinematography and direction were astonishing and it’s no surprise that Saving Private Ryan won in the 1999 Oscars for those. And while the film may have some rough patches in between major events, it won’t stop you from enjoying the movie as a whole. It’s a great example of a film that’s worthy of its screening time as you enjoy seeing more of Speilberg’s direction and not a single moment less.
