Goofs

  • In the final battle scene, Ryan informs Miller that they can use the mortar rounds like grenades. Many of the rounds they toss, however, explode at different times inconsistent with the angle of the throw and where they would have landed. Some of the explosions occur before the mortar rounds hit the ground.

A harrowing World War II epic about the struggle to uphold decency in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, the visual masterwork finds Spielberg atop his craft, weaving heart-pounding action and gut-wrenching emotion — often during the same sequence — that will leave viewers silently shaken.
