Trivia

At the rally point, Wade tells Reiben to smell a wounded trooper's leg to find out if it's "south of cheese" which means its a sign of serious infection.at that point it would need to be surgically debrided along with antibiotics. Given the timeframe and their location, he'd probably be looking at amputation or death. in WWII the supply of penicillin was low, so they often gave soldiers para-aminohippurate (PAH) along with penicillin. PAH competes for the same transporters in the kidney to clear the body, so by giving PAH it takes up the transporters and lets penicillin circulate longer in the body thereby prolonging its effects.


Quotes

Ryan's son: Dad?
LCVP pilot: CLEAR THE RAMP! THIRTY SECONDS! GOD BE WITH YA!


Goofs

Some of the ammunition cans were made after World War II; they have smooth sides instead of a recessed border and "low area."


Crazy Credits

There are no opening credits after the title is shown.


Alternate Versions

Differences between theatrical version vs. DVD

  • on the beach in Normandy Tom Hanks orders his men to take out the sniper that has them pinned down. Soldier after soldier die as they go around the corner while they have covering fire. There is a scene that was cut where he is telling a soldier (after soldier baulks) that they will both go out together. Tom counts down and fakes going out and the other soldier goes out and is gunned down.
  • Scene where they let the two German soldiers walk away - DVD version does not show them shot in the back as they are down the road.

Can Ben Barnes Fix Thanos?

Ben Barnes' character in "The Punisher" sees a therapist, so obviously he's perfectly qualified to give his fellow villains Magneto, Mystique, and Thanos some much-needed therapy.
