The 1960s in America were turbulent times - the assassinations of Martin Luther King and President John F.

Premiere of Saving Private Ryan was a revolution in the genre - before 1998 there were several approaches to war movies, from adventure driven ones (like Operation Burma or Kelly’s Heroes) to documentary-like blockbuster productions (like Midway or Tora Tora Tora), but there was nothing like Saving Private Ryan, nothing so intense, so real, so jaw-dropping and at the same time so terrifying. Steven Spielberg and Janusz Kaminski came up with perfect recipe by decreasing the saturation, adding sharper image and more dynamic camerawork.

American war movies very rarely deal with the reasons behind why the nation fought against United States, in most cases because they would have to show the real reasons why USA joined some of the wars, but when it comes to World War 2 they make exception, especially for Japan.
