Customer Review

on 3 September 2006
It's obvious that this series will appeal to lovers of war films, especially those interested in WWII; with Tom Hanks & Steven Spielberg taking the directorial duties, there's an intensity & realism to every combat scene that films of the same genre often fail to create. Whether it be the point-of-view shot of a soldier parachuting into France on D-Day or the chaos of the shelling on the Allied position in the woods of Bastogne, it's all brilliantly exhilirating.

However, Band of Brothers isn't nearly as one dimensional as many war films; the relationships built up between the men over the years, only to be lost in an instant, is utterly moving. The same can be said for the episode 'Why We Fight' where a concentration camp is discovered.

It's so easy to simply get lost in this series, just putting on one disc after another. Across the 5 discs, the 10 episodes make the best 8 or 9 hour film ever made, always keeping you engrossed in the story.

If you are a fan of 'Saving Private Ryan', this is perfect for you & definitely worth the money.

5 Stars & couldn't recommend it more
