Steven Spielberg's World War 2 epic comes to blu-ray for the first time with crystal clear picture and spectacular surround sound. Join Tom Hanks, Matt Damon and Vin Diesel as they battle their way through war-torn France... this is Saving Private Ryan as you have never seen it before!

Seen through the eyes of a squad of American soldiers, the story begins with World War II's historic D-Day invasion, then moves beyond the beach as the men embark on a dangerous special mission. Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) must take his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan, whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Faced with impossible odds, the men question their orders. Why are eight men risking their lives to save just one? Surrounded by the brutal realities of war, each man searches for his own answer - and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage.

Love this film and received my steelbook today but it looks like they have just grabbed disc one from the normal release and bunged in this. My PS3 even said Saving Private Ryan Disc 1........ very disappointed in this release.

 good film terrible disc.

An increasingly annoying trend is the double dip. However if your expecting the dvd anniversary version you wont find it here. With absolutely no extras and a picture that only highlights the films dust and pop marks this is no good to anyone other than the completists looking for the steelbook. The film though is still a benchmark in modern cinema.

ok lets start with the steelbook it feels well made but its not the best looking one has artwork on the inside which i thought looked better than the outside..
there are plenty of audio selections in 5.1 dts including...
spanish..also the same for the subtitles..
i personally thought the picture is a bit of a mix..now i know they like to keep it a little grainy for that life like feel but when the beach assult finishes the picture can sometimes look spot on and then go back to being grainy my thoughts were make your mind up..
the extras are a big no no..not even a trailer..
so the question is if your steelbook collector yea good price will add to the collection other than that it brings nothing new..
hope this helps..

 I'll see you on the Beach.

Great film.

Great Steelbook,which is the one disc movie only version. There is no 2nd disc of special features. The disc is identical to the one in the non steelbook 2 disc only edition!

 Great Steelbook, shame about the edition!!

Really just want to echo what's already been said. The movie and Bluray quality are excellent, this Steelbook leaves a lot to be desired, feels like a money-maker nothing more, nothing less.

The case is excellent, then again, I'm a Steelbook collector!! It's a damn shame that this only contains Disc 1 of what should be a 2 disc set.
Steelbooks should be the pinnacle of a Bluray release, this sadly, is not.
