If you read the book then watch the movie, you're going to be horribly disappointed. The characters in the movie are nowhere near like they are in the book. Ira Hayes was actually the quietest man of all of them and in the movie he is a drunken, pyscopathic idiot who blubbers and yells all the time. Doc Bradley only has like two lines in the movie and he is supposed to be the main character, making him very boring. Rene Gagnon was fine, they cast him well. It was almost as if Mr. Eastwood was trying to make it look like no one believed in fighting the war in the Pacific. Doc Bradley says "maybe there are no such things as heroes maybe we just make them up." Very uplifting. This is not Platoon, (a good movie, by the way) Mr. Eastwood. Find another screenwriter and another director.

    One of the best WWII films ever made

    Clint Eastwood did a very good job in the telling of The Battle for Iwo Jima. I would have to say this was better than LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA even though it was good too.

    Proud to be an American

    Outstanding Movie to watch with my Dad a true WWII Vet. It was also a research project for my son"s school report and he needless to say recieved an A+ and learned more than a history lesson. This Movie made me proud to stand here and feel what a true soldier sacrifices for his fellow comrades and the Love of his Country and family.

    Both book and movie are excellent

    Saw the movie on DVD on 2/07 and read the book last year. As best I can remember from reading the book the movie is very close to the book. In fact the movie seems to bring out the real life of what took place with the Flag Raisers. Not much different than the book. What the movie brings out and does it very well is the emotional side of the Flag Raisers.
