Good movie, better then I thought!
Spoilers in text!
Think of this movie as a great piece of war! The environment is lovely
big battles, set on a Japanese islands.
I didn't think this film was made of John Woo, because he usually do this
films with a lot of cinematic visual effects for ex. Mission Impossible 2.
So how will this look in a world war 2 movie? Was one of my thoughts...The
thing is that Woo doesn't over use these spectacular events now, thank
He uses them with a nice finger tip feeling, that is absolutely perfect!
The actors performance was very good too in my opinion. Nicholas Cage
is most of the time quite "the same" no matter what movie he does, but he
does his part well in WT, nothing more.. Christian Slater has only a minor
role as Cages team member, which is sad because he is a good actor. And of
course Peter Stormare one of Swedens "pride in acting", has a role as an
officer in command. Stormare does his minor role with strength and he
is a good leader.
The sound is very good with a lot of big explosions. Any of you that has a
good Home Cinema sound: rent this movie! Only the sound by it self has
enough strength to give you a strong feeling of real war.
I seems a bit strange that so many dislike this movie, because everything;
acting, realism, sound, picture is profound.,
So my grade is: 8/10. If you like war and realism, rent this

It was agood movie I thought it was the best movie.
a great war movie that part of history.
This is a very good war movie that gives u a fellin of what the native americans went through durin the ww2.
These wars were not known to be achieving anything at the time the boys went to war.
A Mixed bag, but not nearly as bad as most here say.....
I'm sure there are flaws in the movie here, lemme see if I noticed a
few...: *Japanese WWII soldiers in Saipan fighting in a WWI Battle of
the Marne trench warfare set-up. Uhhhh, no.
*Saipan made out to look like it was fought right behind MASH 4077th.
No....not California Desert. Try a Volcanic Pacific Island w/ some
*Couldn't tell the two blonde GI's apart. The Redneck looked like the
guy who gives the little girl candy.
*Adam Beach looked like Lou Diamond Phillips. Roger Willie was more
convincing as a Navajo. Just saying--maybe I'm way off? *Cage was
basically channeling John Wayne from 'Sands of Iwo Jima' save for the
fact that Wayne as Sgt Stryker was 1000 times more believable. You
know, ala the Duke and Rambo, never misses what he shoots at, a
gazillion rounds miss him, etc.
*CGI planes were goofy.
*Shelling was stupidly accurate.
*Japanese guys couldn't hit the broadside of a barn at 4 feet.
*Leb from Armageddon didn't really cut it as Gunny, though I thought
Christian Slater was better, before he lost his head. That was--well
sick and weird.
*Banzai charge in daylight from strong uphill positions--somehow I
don't think the Japanese were that stupid.
*Filmers missed the chance to tell us about the Navajo code-breakers.
What was good? *Two Navajo guys. I liked Roger Willie the best.
*Cage was alright, quit complaining. Same part he played in the Rock
*Overkill violence-well 'Private Ryan' had it along w/ 'Black Hawk
Down'. It's just the clich.
