We all heard about the first 20 minutes of this film. Accolades all around, no doubt, it was amazing footage. But we still had two more hours to go. The script was subpar, it took the real life tragedy of the Sullivan Brothers and mixed it with several fictional movies, "Battlefield" is a prime example and a lot of "Saving Private Ryan" stole like mad from that original gem. We all know Tom Hanks was doomed the moment he sputtered out the the line, "I just want to go home and be with my wife and kids." We also knew that each guy who took off his helmet with a sigh of relief was doomed also. I guess the predictability of this movie was its eventual downfall. We were also blessed with another flick with Matt Damon's boyish smile that was already getting a little stale by the time this movie was made. All in all this movie was not that great of a movie. So I think it is over rated.
