Clint Eastwood's completion of the Iwo Jima saga. Here the action is seen from the Japanese point of view and the film is based on the book 'Picture Letters from Commander in Chief' by Tadamichi Kuribayashi. The island of Iwo Jima stands between the American military force and the home islands of Japan. Therefore the Imperial Japanese Army is desperate to prevent it from falling into American hands and providing a launching point for an invasion of Japan. General Tadamichi Kuribayashi (Ken Watanabe) is given command of the forces on the island and sets out to prepare for the imminent attack. General Kuribayashi, however, does not favour the rigid traditional approach recommended by his subordinates, and resentment and resistance fester among his staff.

Our review

"Eastwood's Pacific one-two concludes with this achingly humanistic take on the Japanese perspective of Iwo Jima. Beautifully shot, shockingly brutal, high on emotion, and more intimate than 'Flags', Eastwood has crafted one of the best war films since Saving Private Ryan."
