Sound effects in this film are very good because it allows the audience to introduced into the war, the music is directed by John Williams.
Predominates during the movie loud music accompanied by sound effects used in the scenes of war.
In this film are looking get with the costumes, give more reality to the story, The uniforms used by the actors, much like to the true uniforms used in the Second World War.
In my conclusion saving Private Ryan is a war movie, but inside has a very strong story that leaves us the values of camaraderie, helping other and giving their lives for what you believe.
