History as only Spielberg could tell it: history-free. Aimless and way too long. Only saving graces: it was inoffensive, no gratuitous violence, and Malkovich is so quirky that you keep watching just to see what his character will do next. It was just...weird.

I appreciate films that show a specific time or area of history never covered. This is centered around the experience of a boy being forced to live in an internment camp, separated from his family. The representation is a thin balance between realism and much dramatization. A young Christian Bale shows tremendous talent. He brings a demanding screen presence. Most of the emotion didn't resonate with me and I found the music, at times, offsetting in that regard. A fine film, regardless.

Empire of the Sun is a heartbreaking and beautiful (subtly) anti-war film, told through the eyes of a young boy. Christian Bale shows that he has the acting chops at an early age and the film also features Ben Stiller in an early, non-comedic and convincing role.

It's been a long time since I've seen this one. But, I definitely remember liking it a lot.

The most underrated Spielberg film full of heart, wonder and compassion. This film will appeal to war and history buffs, Spielberg fans, it even makes a good family film. If you haven't seen this gem yet, put it on your list now.
