Letters from Iwo Jima 
Letters from Iwo Jima
3/4 stars

It's nice to see a World War II film from the Japanese's perspective. There are a lot of elements working together here which made this film ferociously effective. Themes of bravery, honor, decisions, betrayals, and truths were consistent with its emotional tone. It's no wonder critics loved this film. I'm not really a big fan of war movies because, like this one, they last really long. Still, I'm not going to deny this movie's boldness and creativity. I did enjoy the battle scenes, which constantly reminded me of "Black Hawk Down." I felt like I was right there in the action. I know I was watching a war movie but I would flinch every time someone died. If one were to analyze this picture, one could see the relevance to the war that is happening in Iraq. The connection is not just the violence but the drive to honor one's nation and personal beliefs.
