Format: Blu-ray
As far as the film goes, Letters from Iwo Jima is a classic. It's a truly heart-wrenching story, and a testament to both the Japanese army's struggle to protect their homeland and Clint Eastwoods' directing ability. Enough about the story, let's talk about the High Definition aspects.

Visual: Letters from Iwo Jima is a film that's done entirely in a semi-desaturated way. Draining colour in the same way the film drains hope from the Japanese armys' situation. All in all, the effect is marvelous and I think it adds so much atmosphere to the film. There's virtually zero grain, blacks are deep and detail is sharp throughout. Visually, this film deserves a 5/5; the transfer is so clear and sharp that the picture is always breathtaking.

Audio: Dolby TrueHD really does the job here. Explosions are deep and resounding, and speech is clear and perfectly audible. The films' audio is well-levelled throughout so whether you're in the middle of an action sequence, or a quiet speech, there's no need to keep changing the volume around.

Extras: Sadly no directors commentary, but you do get the standard behind-the-scenes footage, on-the-set photos and so on..There's also a cool featurette where the cast talk about their characters, which is an interesting addition.

Overall, Letters from Iwo Jima is a great example of a blu-ray disc. Pristine quality matched with a great story. I would have liked to see more extras, but all in all this is definitely a film to add to the collection, war-film fan or not. Hope this helps.

Superb, and that covers everything about this film. I hate subtitles but in this case I had no problem with them, they didn't cause me to miss anything and I was able to read them before they changed to the next one. Since 99.9% of the film is in Japanese to be without them would be daft.
Having watched the companion film 'Flags of our Fathers' I find that this is far superior even though Flags is very good.
All in all, a top film.

The main obstacle to engaging with Clint Eastwood's admirable `Letters From Iwo Jima` is the saturation of battle imagery in modern cinema. This is a front-line war film which, while dealing with notions of memory, compassion, cowardice and honour, takes place largely on the battlefield. From the misguidedly mawkish 'Saving Private Ryan' to the exploitative "War Porn" of `Black Hawk Down', recent cinema has not been left wanting for well-simulated, sometimes sensationalised scenes of battle. The filmmakers will always tell you that they are trying to show the audience how war is really fought, but there is a gorey voyeurism that also leaves a bad taste in the mouth. `Letters From Iwo Jima` definitely does not fit into that category in spirit, for Eastwood is such a careful director - sometimes too careful - and his interests lie honourably in ruminations on humanity. Save a few unflinching, CGI-enhanced scenes of bloody denouement - for instance, a mass suicide of Japanese soldiers by hand grenade, where something less overt might have sufficed - Eastwood's intentions are clear. But it is regrettably easy to become disengaged with images of war, and this is no fault of the director. From 24 hour news channels to streamed video content and increasingly ferocious cinema, there is no shortage of horror to numb the senses.

A more personal objection I have to Eastwood's filmmaking is that he is a little too on-message, too soft-centred, to deliver the emotional impact his subjects invite. `Million Dollar Baby' was, for me, the epitomie of Academy Approved Serious Cinema - safe, trite and sentimental. His greatest work as director remains `Unforgiven', a film that subverted our expectations and transformed the Western genre permanently.

This film apparently came out to accompany Flags of our Fathers also directed by Eastwood but here showing the Japanese side of the conflict.

Unlike Flags I felt that this film gave a greater examination of the individual soldier and the personal daemons he has to face both in preparation for battle and during it. The film gives us flash backs to some of the men's lives back in Japan, the families they left behind and the emotional turmoil they were suffering with both willing to serve the Emperor in the war effort and return to their loved ones.

The film also examines some of the reasons as to why the Japanese lost the war. Far from being highly disciplined men commanding officers are shown to disobey direct orders to retreat and regroup from seniors and lead their men into hopeless counter attacks. The lack of ammunition that the Japanese army had and also their lack of troops and supplies.

The film displays touching scenes of both camaraderie between soldiers (For example a soldier sent to their unit who initially they thought was sent to spy on them turns out to have been sent there because he refused to shoot a families dog) and also the camaraderie between opposing armies (The treatment of an injured American soldier by his Japanese captors)

Some may be put off by the film being in subtitles and not being a speaker of Japanese I cannot comment on the quality of translation. Still I found this a fascinating film and one I recommend.
