Favorite Scenes - Saving Private Ryan (1998)

"Maybe saving Private Ryan is the one decent thing we did in this war"

The opening beach scene in Saving Private Ryan was everything. Explosive, bloody, graphic, action packed, so realistic and so emotional. The movie literally opened with a BANG and really set the bar in this remarkable film and the other impressive action sequences that followed. Steven Spielberg draws us into the horrors of warfare with Saving Private Ryan; a powerful, beautifully shot, well acted and engaging story depicting World War II and a quest to save one soldier's life.

This opening scene for me, is one of the greatest war scenes ever shot. It highlights the very bloody D-Day landing on Omaha Beach by the Allies in 1944. Check out the scene below:
