''They may have fought for their country but they died for their friends. For the man in front, for the man beside him, and if we wish to truly honor these men we should remember them the way they really were, the way my dad remembered them.''

The life stories of the six men who raised the flag at The Battle of Iwo Jima, a turning point in WWII.

Since I really enjoyed 'Letters to Iwo Jima', I was really eager to watch this flick. Together, they make one of the best depiction of war I have ever seen and it is quite impressive when you think that Clint Eastwood had never made a war movie before. I mean, the battle scenes were really horrific and some of the best I have seen, it almost reached the level of the introduction of 'Saving Private... read more

It was a good movie, but I felt it tried too hard to be "Saving Private Ryan" at parts. I also felt there were too many characters. Someone dies in the beginning and everybody in the movie is sad, but you just feel indifferent. I did like the acting though. Another thing I didn't like was, half-way through the movie, we go back to this guy interviewing a veteran. They haven't been doing it all thr... read more

Description: In February, 1945, one of the fiercest battles of the Pacific theater of World War II occurs on the tiny island of Iwo Jima. Thousands of Marines attack the stronghold maintained by thousands of Japanese, and the slaughter on both sides is horrific. Early in the battle, an American flag is raised atop the high point, Mount Suribachi, and a photograph of the raising becomes an American cause celebre. As a powerful inspiration to war-sick Americans, the photo becomes a symbol of the Allied cause. The three surviving flag raisers, Rene Gagnon, John Bradley, and Ira Hayes, are whisked back to civilization to help raise funds for the ... (more)

" A great thoughtful premise about who creates a hero and who becomes one - and if they are all created by circumstances or by fate? Excellent philosophical things that Clint Eastwood dare to rip into, especially the story about the Native American Ira is gripping. "

"Clint Eastwood gives directing a go and does a good job here. Letters from Iwo Jima is widely regarded as the better of the two but both films are good and it's good to see the battle from both perspectives. Both films focus around the Battle of Iwo Jima, Flags of Our Fathers, however, has a clear focus on those who lifted the flag (or didn't as the case may be) in the famous WWII photo (also seen on the cover) and the impact this had on their lives.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2016 (26 movies items)

" DVD- 2hrs. 12min. First Viewing Restrained to a fault, the problem with several Eastwood flicks, Flags of Our Fathers offers a stirring story about the sacrifice of WWII soldiers, but does so in the most dull and forgettable ways. The cast is strong, Adam Beach in particular deserves a stand-alone story for this character, but their largely wasted in a surface view of the events. The film's visual output is where the movie doesn't disappoint, with the costumes, production design and cinematogra"

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (215 movies items)

"7.1, Netflix Clint Eastwoodin heikoimpia tekeleitä ohjaajana. Vähän petyin jo siinä vaiheessa, kun tajusin että kyseessä ei olekaan sotaelokuva sanan varsinaisessa merkityksessä. Tarina hyppii itse sotatantereelta aina sotilaiden myöhäisempään elämään, jossa pointtina on kertoa kuinka kaatuneet sotilaat jäävät yksilöinä unholaan. Eastwood kuitenkin käyttää lähtökohtien tarjoaman potentiaalin puolivillaisesti, ja tunneside hahmoihin jää melko köyhäksi. Lopulta koko ai"
