I watched this movie for the second time a short while back, and found it much more powerful than most war movies. I like how it shows the D-Day landing from all perspectives, varying both nationality and rank. There are enough movies that suck you right into the trenches, bunkers, or submarines; here is one that lifts you high above the fog and lets you see the entire operation. Along with all that, it manages to work in the little twist at the end. I won't spoil it for people who still haven't seen the movie, but even when I knew exactly what would happen, I was spellbound.
