The film is also notable for being pitted against ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' both at the time it came out [[DuelingMovies and ever since]], with the two (very different) war films being (perhaps unfairly) compared to each other and various film critics [[BrokenBase taking sides]]. This is owing to the fact that [[LoveItOrHateIt it depends on what kind of war movie you are looking to see]].
