Everyone in the Army has seen this and almost everyone has it in their DVD collection. Absolutely amazing film that really captures the grit and grim of the war . I broke into tears at the end of the film with  “tell me  I’ve lead a good life”. A truly moving piece of cinema that will  be seen by many future generations. As most of you know,  Tom Hanks and Spielberg later went on to make Band of Brothers and The Pacific.

Memorable film quote  “Earn this”

ManCry star rating ********** 10/10

**Spoilers** Here’s the final battle scene with the”earn this” quote

and “tell me I’ve led a good life” ending to the film. Literally wiped tears away watching this (again).

Unbelievable soundtrack : Enjoy!

  1. What a film! The opening battle scene is immense, quite unforgetable. I was visiting the US when this film came out, and I went to see it at the cinema on the opening weekend. Several veterans had come in uniform, which, for a Brit, was quite an unusual experience. When the film was over it was as if a tide of emotion had swept over the audience, some people were audibly sobbing and many older gentlemen left teary-eyed. I don’t think I’ll ever forget that experience.

  2. What an experience that must of been. As you can see link to your blog on the right – welcome to add mancry to yours if you wish. Happy browsing and thanks for visiting.

  3. […] Korea war and I wont spoil the rest. Excellent action scenes of epic scale, some say it even tops Saving Private Ryan. I don’t think it’s fair to say that as they are two films about two different wars. […]
