As Captain Miller says to "gear up" after releasing the hostage, one of the sub-ordinates refuses. What I am trying to understand is what the movie was trying to portray in that minute or so when Captain Miller didn't say a word.
The scene shows him as gearing up, is it supposed to be showing Captain Miller's trust in his sub-ordinate to follow orders or is he generally in shock at the current situation.
In the small speech at the end where he says he is a school teacher and does not care who is Ryan, I am thinking the fact that camera does not spend much focus on him that this is how it was to be portrayed; those few minutes of mute were meant to show he didn't care.
Is this the correct thought process for the scene?
