14. Okay
I'm not enough of a morality critic to argue, I guess though I had forgotten about the flag at the end when I made my original post. That was unnecessary, I thought, and it took something away from the film's message, or the message I inferred.

I didn't infer a shortage of respect from Ryan's "demand" for affirmation, though. I saw a grief- and somewhat awe-stricken man hoping he'd lived up to his "saviour"'s last words, which he obviously took to heart, and asking the one whose opinion he valued most for that affirmation. It was a bit over-dramatic and perhaps schlocky, but I think it worked.

I'll save my real rippin' for "Pearl Harbor," which was so over the top as to have me yelling at the screen.
