While it is not the best war movie, it is certainly fun and a great visual experience. Tom Hanks was a great choice, although some of the other casting was a little off. I thought the action sequences were well done at not glorified. Steven Spielberg clearly spent a lot of time and energy on this project and it’s not your typical action movie. Where it really fails is the flawless opening scene and then complete change of pace, most people probably wanted more of the first 10 minutes.
