In my opinion, Iwo Jima is the superior of the parallel WWII films of Clint Eastwood, more steeped in character development and less concerned with flashy battle sequences. The themes of honor and virtue that were so important to the Japanese really stick home and it's refreshing to see a war story told from the perspective of another culture.

In 2006, iconic actor and director Clint Eastwood released two movies dealing with the World War 2 Battle of Iwo Jima. Flags of our Fathers dealt with the American marines who raised the American flag in the legendary photograph taken at the time. Letters from Iwo Jima explored the battle from the Japanese perspective and is a far more personal and intimate movie. In examining the hardship and unbearable conditions endured by soldiers facing in surmounting odds, LFIJ humanizes the combatants without being over sentimental. Fresher and more focused than Flags, this is a movie that portrays the horrors of war using superb and assured cinematography and turns an emotionally charged war movie into a near classic.

A decent flick. It's nothing to get excited about though.

I like this movie, but I am not sure what all the hype is? It was really good to know the Japanese side of things and to allow Americans to understand this is worth the cost of admission. But, it was a little long and rather unimpressive.
