Is Saving Private Ryan the Greatest War Movie Ever?

Perhaps one of the most badass, epic, real war movies now out on Blue Ray Safire Series. A new edition of Saving Private Ryan is now available on Blu-ray Safire series format with loads of new features.

Who Is In It?

This film, robbed of the Best Picture Academy Award, is a Steven Spielberg masterpiece and one of the most seen war movies of all time. With an all-star cast starring Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi, Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Adam Goldberg, Barry Pepper, and Jeremy Davies. The film was nominated and took home the trophies for five awards: Best Director, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Sound, and Best Sound Effect.

What’s It About

Saving Private Ryan is the story of a rag-tag troop of men assigned with a perilous duty during War War 2. Lead by Tom Hank’s character, the men must go behind enemy lines after landing at D Day to find and rescue a certain Private Ryan, who is the sole son left in a family of 5 boys who have all perished in the war. They are forced to risk their own lives to save the life of someone they have never met. Only to be constant targets and worry that they’ll die being unsuccessful in saving him. The mission tests their fortitude and challenges the purpose of war itself.

What Else You Will See?

The Blu-ray Sapphire Series has a new array of special features that come with the disk. A new introduction, the re-release trailer, theatrical trailer, and several behind the action scenes, including Looking into the Past, Miller and his Platoon, Boot Camp, the making of Saving Private Ryan, re-creating Omaha Beach, Music and Sound, Parting Thoughts, and Into the breach: “Saving Private Ryan”. The Sapphire Series Saving Private Ryan features subtitles and dubbing in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

What Makes Saving Private Ryan Manly?

Saving Private Ryan has been and always will be a guy flick. Its gruesome, in-your-face first 24-minute scene of the landing of D Day at Omaha Beach in Normandy, France, is one of the most vivid and realistic portrayals of the horrors and hell of war ever filmed in a movie and can be difficult even today to watch. This Blu-ray edition features crisp, clear quality with the film having been digitally converted from its original 1998 version.

While the audience might have been expecting more special features and extra content for the 20-anniversary edition release of the Blu-ray version, they might be disappointed by the limited bonus features on this Blu-ray version. Despite this, Saving Private Ryan is still such a great flick that its lack of juicier special features will probably go unnoticed by most fans of the movie.

Who Will Enjoy It?

Saving Private Ryan is certainly not for everyone. You will discover that this movie’s R rating is well deserved for its opening scenes if not for the language and bloodshed illustrated in the battle scenes of the film. The original theatrical release of Saving Private Ryan saw World War 2 veterans weep in their seats, stating it was the most real portrayal of the ugliness of war. Based on the film’s historian Stephen E Ambrose’s 1994 bestselling novel D Day: June 6, 1944, Saving Private Ryan is often praised by historians for it realness and historical accuracy. Not recommended for those faint at heart of with uneasy stomachs when it comes to watching non-gratuitous, but intense amount of blood, death, guts, gore, and violence on the small screen.

Originally released on DVD in 2010, this one hundred sixty-nine-minute-long film’s Blu-ray Safire release is a welcome addition to any home DVD collection, especially if you didn’t purchase it during Saving Private Ryan’s original DVD release. This version’s special features and two-disc collection design is perfect for the home theater audience.
