Most problematic was the framing device: a man playing the elderly Ryan visits the cemetery where rows and rows of white crosses mark the graves of his comrades. The veteran’s homage feels preachy, a superfluous attempt to underscore the film’s patriotism. It was the “responsible” director abandoning art for a commemorative history lesson, telling us schoolchildren how to feel.

The same chestnuts implicitly critiqued in the opening mayhem soon reappear, and it becomes clear that the major lesson Spielberg has to teach us about war is what he’s learned from a lifetime of moviegoing. And what he’s learned turns out to be something for everyone rather than a single vision: war is hell, war is absurd, war is necessary, war is unnecessary, war is uplifting, war is depressing, war is a lesson in morality, war is a lesson in immorality, and so on.
