Great war movie! The reason I choose to watch this, was because I had been watching the series: "The Pacific" and wanted some more insight of the battles taking place in the pacific as part of Second World War.
The movie is more a portrait of the involved parts in raising the flag than it is an actual war movie, I'd say. Still it raises a lot of questions on the American Governments actions in the situation, using the episod collecting money, to keep the big war machine going.

If you can't be bothered about spending the 132 minuttes, then at least head over to Wikipedia:
and read that article, there's some great stuff =)

Any way, I like The Pacific series way better, since it depicts the ongoing struggle so much better(knowing that's not FoOF purpose) and is way more gritty than FoOF, and I think that grittiness is way more realistic, and also the not that know actors of The Pacific is more believable than the stars of FoOF...
