I personally like the Japanese perspective companion piece, but Flags of our Fathers is still a well-made and stirring war film. The battle sequences are kinetically photographed and the heroism of soldiers is on full display as director Clint Eastwood crafts memorable characters, then drops them into combat for us to root for.

Wonderfully depressing. Here we go with propaganda and the misuse of people.

Even though Clint Eastwood was involved in this, it was still not very good.

Flags of Our Fathers review

A perfection companion to Letters From Iwo Jima. The film revolves around United States Marines of the 28th Marine Regiment, Sgt. Mike Strank, Pfc. Rene Gagnon, Pfc. Ira Hayes, Cpl. Harlon Block, Pfc. Franklin Sousley, Sgt. Hank Hansen, and Pfc. Ralph Ignatowski, and John "Doc" Bradley. Adam Beach was effective, Ryan Phillippe's sincere approach to the character was good while the rest did a wonderful job with the supporting role. The camera work and cinematography made you feel you were there, battle scenes were authentic. Screenplay was wonderful with lines like: "One hell of an experience." from Mike and "That island saved a lot of lives." The score was apt and endearing. Flags of Our Fathers is a powerful underrated film of heroism, friendship, commercialism, fabrications, effec...

"Flags Of Our Fathers" by Yojimbo

Flags Of Our Fathers tells the story of the Allied invasion of Iwo Jima through the eyes of the six soldiers who became iconic when photographed erecting the stars and stripes on the island. Yet another beautifully accomplished and mature film from Clint Eastwood, Flags Of Our Fathers takes an unsentimental look at not only the battle itself, but also the long term psychological effect on the men that fought in it and the way in which a single piece of propaganda can have just as much of an impact as a fleet of battleships. It skillfully and believably represents the battlefield in a way that may not be as visceral as Saving Private Ryan, but still gives a feeling of what it must have been like as well as encompassing every aspect of the invasion, from the infantry landings through to the...

Flags of Our Fathers

Flags of Our Fathers is a disappointing film from the talented team of Clint Eastwood and Paul Haggis. This film only mildly entertaining. It moves slowly and lacks excitement. Clint Eastwoods direction is good, although he has a bit to many camera shaking scenes(i'm not at all a fan of that.). There's no doubt in my mind that Paul Haggis is a talented writer/director, but, his screenplay(or lack there of) in this film is laughable, the only good part of the script is the narration. The cast is only decent. Adam Beach and Ryan Phillippe are good in their roles. Barry Pepper, Jamie Bell, Neal McDonough and Robert Patrick are also good. But, Jesse Bradford and Paul Walker(who's barely in it) are bad. The Film has a good score and breath-taking Cinematography, along with outstanding battle s...
