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. In Saving Priva... read more

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. Therefore the Imperial Japanese Army is desperate to prevent it from falling into American hands and providing a launching point for an invasion of Japan. General Tadamichi Kuribayashi is given command of the forces on the island and sets out to prepare for the imminent attack. General Kuribayashi, however, does not favor the rigid traditional approach recommended by his subordinates, and resentment and resistance fester among his staff.

1001 Movies ... my own version (2000's) (175 movies items)

" Notes: First of all, it was quite interesting that this movie was Clint Eastwood's actual first 'attempt' to make a war drama but, eventually, you could say that he was quite successful, once again. Indeed, the movie looked great, the story was quite spellbinding and I loved the fact that it was focusing on the 'bad guys' for once. In the process, they gave the enemy a human face, a voice and some emotions. I really wonder what the Japanese audience made of this movie, maybe I should check it "
