What is there to say about this film that hasn’t been said? Spielberg released the film at the height of late 90s-early-2000s among many other war films such as Malick’s The Thin Red Line. Spielberg again gathered a stellar cast (Tom Hanks, Matt Damon) for what is still considered to be the most accurate depiction of warfare in a motion picture. Our hearts are tied to the fate of a small military band searching for a mother’s last living son.
