Saving Private Ryan ★★★★

Finally a movie that lives up to the hype. The battles in this movie are intense and keep you engaged. The characters are believable and sympathetic. There is just so much about this movie that is done so well that it makes it hard to pick out the best parts because it is so many little things that elevate it. My biggest issue with this was that it is kind of hard to believe Tom Hanks as this hard ass captain. But this doesn't take away from his performance. A great watch but not the type of film I will return to regularly.
