It was a good movie, but I don't think I would call it a "masterpiece." It definately showed the brutalities of war extremely well, especially in the beginning in the storming of Omaha beach. But I couldn't find anything outstanding outside of it just giving a sample of the otrocities of war. The drama and the brotherhood created by war, the emotions and the such weren't developed enough. The most it came to was the ammunition guy that spoke both French and German being too afraid to risk his life for his friends, which is ironic since he was going to write a book about the brotherhood that war creates. But that ended up just frustrating me instead of leaving me in awe or emotional about drama in the war.

What do you guys think?

It has it's moments, granted, but should I find it to be playing while zapping between the other channels nowadays I probably wouldn't stop to watch the rest of it.
It's not one of those movies I can or would like to watch over and over.
Bronto?
Congrats.

Never in my life have I seen such an intense portrayal of war as I did in the first thirty minutes of that film. It totally blew me away when I watched it.

Same. The rest was good too but the first part was the main event
