5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest War Movie - Quite Possibly, December 20, 2011
This review is from: Band of Brothers [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I first watched Band of Brothers on TV as the HBO special. After watching it a couple of times, a friend recorded the entire series and I was able to watch it for a second time, I knew I had to have the movie when they hit the streets. I didn't care what it cost when it first came out and I bought it immediately. Even though I still have the original DVD set, in great shape, I could not wait until the Blu Ray copy came out. I added it to my collection almost as quickly as I bought the first set.

I was impressed with the footage, the filming and the actors that played the roles. I was so glad to see that they used lesser known actors for the most part as it allowed us to focus on the story and not the actors playing the parts. Damian Lewis was an outstanding choice for MAJ Winters and I thought he did a tremendous job. Like another reviewer pointed out, we have fewer and fewer WWII vets still around and so this movie gives us a chance to "Walk a mile in their shoes", so to speak.

Each episode gave a quick story of Easy Company as they moved from Georgia, through Normandy, to Bastogne to Germany, where they were until the end of the war. Each episode gives us a feeling for what it was like and tried to show us the hardships they faced. One of the features I really enjoyed was when the actual members of Easy Company told their story, generally at the beginning of the episode.

A great movie and a definite "Must Have" for any video library.
