Flags of our Fathers

Clint Eastwood has made multiple wonderful movies, and some of them are among favourites as well, i.e. Million Dollar Baby and Mystic River. So when I heard that he has made to twin-movies about an incident from World War II, I was looking forward to watch these.

“Flags of our Fathers” is about the attack on a Japanese island called Iwo Jima. This movie looks at the event from an American point of view, and tells the stories about soldiers who attacked Iwo Jima. The other twin-movie is from a Japanese perspective, and called Letters from Iwo Jima.

The movie was good, and uses nice visuals to tell the story. However, I must say that some of the magic from Clint Eastwood was missing.

Rating: 4/5 of 6
