Like no film in recent memory, 'Saving Private Ryan' focuses its attention squarely on the brutalities endured by American soldiers in World War II. Central to this impact is the already legendary opening half hour, detailing with remorseless brilliance the carnage of the D-Day landings. Understandably enough, Spielberg finds it hard to follow up this bravura introduction. The actual meat of the story, in which Hanks is sent off with the remnants of his unit to locate the eponymous Ryan, is built on rugged rather than subtle lines.
