The story of the battle of Iwo Jima between the United States and Imperial Japan during World War II, as told from the perspective of the Japanese who fought it.
Did it really last two and a half hours? It felt felt a lot shorter
No, this is not an action war film with nonstop blood baths. It is a
film that pulls the humanity out of the monster that is war.
This is one of, if not the best, movie ever directed by Clint Eastwood.
I usually have a hard time following plots with many characters because
they make me lose focus on the general story, but this one is done
well. Not only am I engaged, I also become attached to every character
and feel and understand their conflicts.
It does not matter who fights on the right or wrong side of WWII. This
film goes beyond that. It is about what is right or wrong for the
individual human being. It excels as a story about the human heart.
