2 hr. 50 min.

MPAA Rating:

R For intense prolonged realistically graphic sequences of war violence, and for language.


Steven Spielberg's grisly realistic account of a squad of D-Day survivors sent behind enemy lines on a PR mission to rescue the last son of a devastated Iowa family. Tom Hanks gives a staggering performance as the squad's tormented leader, but be warned, the carnage is as explicit as it is persistent.
