This great drama opens with one of the bloodiest battles in human history, D-Day, June 6th, 1944. Capt. Miller (Tom Hanks) is fighting against the German's on a famous beach, and when the gory and horrible fight is over, he brings a small group (including an american solider who can speak German) on a mission to find a man named James Francis Ryan to tell him that he's three brothers were murdered in combat, and that they're bringing him home. Once they travel so far that they find him in a German town invaded by Germans, and they realize that Ryan and his crew are there preparing for a German attack on an important bridge. So, Ryan and Miller's teams collaborate and take on the Germans themselves. Will Ryan, his crew, Miller, and his crew as well. There's no telling who's the main character here.
