Incredibly beautiful, powerful, brutal and emotional movie. Just saw it this weekend, and unless its a shell-shock effect, I'll go on record now to say it is the best World War 2 movie ever filmed. Spielberg needs to take a cue from Eastwood to see how to properly make a war film. There is no better way to show the true horrors of war than by showing BOTH sides of the conflict.

I watched the first Iwo Jima film by Clint and was very moved by the movie. I heard about the second and couln't wait for it to open up in my town. I'm glad the wait is over. This was an extremely powerful movie and was done in a way that will leave a lasting impression on your memory. I heard that the second film was better and I think I would have to agree. I was left drained and mad after ... read more

Description: The island of Iwo Jima stands between the American military force and the home islands of Japan.

" A poetic, emotional and bleak Japanese story as Eastwood does the masterpiece of showing the war battle Iwo Jima from two sides (the first being "Flags of Our Fathers"). I applaud Eastwood for giving the Japanese soldiers a voice in the U.S. as his name have make this story available for a bigger audience. The characters that tell this side of the story are gripping and the action in this film is intense. "

"Letters from Iwo Jima is not just Flags of our fathers without the flag, it gives you a deep insight into the Japanese army's culture at the time. The Japanese are not simply painted as the evil ones, Eastwood does a great job of showing how good and evil were on both sides. "
