Review "At its best, Flags of Our Fathers is eye opening and thought provoking. The battle scenes are raw and energetic, while the post-Iwo Jima segments question our established ideas about heroism. The word ""hero"" has been used often following 9/11, so it's interesting to hear the characters in this movie question what it means to bear that label and whether they consider themselves worthy of it. In fact, most soldiers did not consider themselves to be heroes, but if you asked them, they could identify someone else - a friend, a comrade, a leader - who was. This aspect of the movie differentiates it from any other World War II film to have come before it."

Review "Orchestrating the narrative's shifts from the expansive to the intimate with impeccable command, Eastwood succeeds at evoking the horrors and heartbreak of warfare with a visceral intensity graphically evocative of Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan. (Spielberg is one of Flags of Our Fathers' producers.) The grisly realism of the combat scenes in Iwo Jima (filmed in Iceland, of all places) may be difficult to watch, but Eastwood doesn't linger over the gore or depict the fighting as anything but hellish. Whatever glory the men in Flags of Our Fathers savor is fleeting, undercut by the terrible awareness of friends lost in battle...Visually stunning and scrupulously authentic...a towering achievement for Eastwood and his cast and crew."

Richard Corliss, Time Clint Eastwood has crafted a bold and meticulous epic.
