Letters From Iwo Jima

Long-buried missives from the island reveal the stories of the Japanese troops who fought and died there during World War II. Among them are Saigo (Kazunari Ninomiya), a baker; Baron Nishi (Tsuyoshi Ihara), an Olympic champion; and Shimizu (Ryo Kase), an idealistic soldier. Though Lt. Gen. Tadamichi Kuribayashi (Ken Watanabe) knows he and his men have virtually no chance of survival, he uses his extraordinary military skills to hold off American troops as long as possible.

Disappointingly majestic

Eastwood misses the emotion that Saving Private Ryan found exists in war and this comes across as almost melodramatic, at least with the drawn moments that hearken to the war movies of the mid-twentieth century (it feels strange to refer to the last century). This was a good movie but missed being spectacular.
