  • The story is interesting and you will likely learn quite a bit you never knew about the taking of Iwo Jima, but the format and narrative of the film are convoluted and complex for no good reason
  • Otherwise, I would recommend the film, but suspect that its companion film Letters from Iwo Jima might have the better story

      “Flags of Our Fathers” was a good film.

      Story: Very interesting. My wife constantly said, “I had no idea” at the variously elements that you learn throughout the story.

      Acting: Ryan Phillipe will have a great career if he keeps picking movies like this. I am concerned for the Native


      American actor Adam Beach- he keeps picking roles that only enforce Indian stereotypes, but if that is what pays… Otherwise, a great ensemble cast.

      Cinematography: Great Eastwood vistas and gorgeous look to the film.

      While it has scenes very similar to the landing at Normandy in “Saving Private Ryan,” it is ...


      • about the fallout of making the soldiers at Iwo Jima into heroes.

        The story is interesting and you will likely learn quite a bit you never knew about the taking of Iwo Jima, but the format and narrative of the film are convoluted and complex for no good reason.

        The

        movie is based on a book and the ending the of flim follows the author’s story, which creates a disjointed, tacked-on ending.

        Otherwise, I would recommend the film, but suspect that its companion film “Letters from Iwo Jima” might have the better story.

        Similar to: “Saving Private Ryan,” “Platoon,” “The Sands of Iwo Jima”
