Wow, hard to believe it's been twenty years. Look how young Matt Damon was. One of my favorite films. Many memorable scenes.

Yep, the D-Day scene is very moving. I read that a lot of WW2 vet's that hit the beach on D-Day had a lot of suppressed memories come back to haunt them after watching the first 25 minutes or so. I agree with Shane, this movie and Band of Brothers brought home World War 2 to the younger generations.

Yes, my father told me he could not watch it either. He was not at D-Day but lost friends who were.
The film's greatness derives from the fact that it so realistically portrays and does not glorify that war.
