When you think of war films there's probably certain titles that pop straight into your head. Things like Full Metal Jacket, Platoon and Saving Private Ryan are all up there, with the latter unsurprisingly being voted the best war film ever on Ranker. The 1998 film seems to find the balance between violence, gore, sentiment and drama quite brilliantly to create a brilliant story line. For many people the film could well end within 10 minutes, as the opening scene is probably the most memorable. However, if we all switched off after the troops arrived on the shores of Normandy, we wouldn't get to see Private Jackson's bell tower scene, with one hell of a monologue, followed by his explosive death.
