Just watched this movie again for the first time in years, a large TV and surround sound system really does add something to the experience!
Anyway my question is this, is the German soldier Uppham shoots at the end the same soldier who Captain Miller released after the fight at the radar station earlier? He looks similar but it can be hard to tell apart one shaven headed man in uniform from another. Although I did have a WTF moment when I realised the soldier shot by the sniper in the French village was Vin Diesal! I’m guessing that SPR was before he became really famous. (I’m going through my collection of old movies I haven’t sen for years on DVD at the moment, another WTF moment was recognising Chris Rock as a parking attendant in Beverly Hills Cop 2 and Brendan Gleeson as a British airline pilot in Die Hard 2!)
btw SPR is just about the only film I’ve seen where ‘shaky-cam’ actually works as its supposed to and is not just an annoying distraction, I suppose thats the different between an average or even good director and a great one like Spielberg.
