5.0 out of 5 stars Saddleup Marines September 29, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is not difficult to review, nor is the story complicated to express an opinion for the message remains clear and certainly not without its overall importance well beyond entertainment. "Sands of Iwo Jima" became a view of history from the commentary of several who remember those early days of 1945. Every day we lose another survivor of that battle and a film of this importance can act only as a reminder that the footprints of those who served, died or survived assured us all that we are a part of this world due to their relentless service not only to a country but to a world.

Iwo Jima took the lives of many men on both sides of the conflict in the Pacific. A few names immediately come to mind beyond the many whose lives were either ended or forever changed during this horrific battle. Sgt. Mike Strank (whom they called "Pappy" because he was the oldest, born in Jarbino, Czechoslovakia November 10th (curiously the anniversary of the founding of the Marine Corps( 1919, and died on March 1st 1945 never realizing the impact of the flag raising had on the balance of the war and the millions at home. Marine private Franklin Sousley, Cpl. Harlon Block, made up three of the six who raised the U.S. flag atop Mt. Suribachi, and three of the six who died on that rock pile in the Ryuku Island chain. The survivors, Navy Corpsman (recipient of the Navy Cross)John Bradley, Rene Gagnon, PFC Ira Hayes, all now a part of history, told many times the story of the flag raising but what was always more important was the reminder of that day and the men who fought and died there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why do i love this picture? May 19, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, I love 'Sands of Iwo Jima" because it is written, directed, and acted well. The biggest reason is "THe Duke". You know, I have never in my life, to my memory, met any person, in the United States of America, who does not like, John Wayne. We will always love his films, and the way he acted in them. There is only one John Wayne, and this is one of the best films, he ever did. So long, Sergeant Stryker. J. Russell

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Film of the Pacific War March 8, 2014
Format:DVD
The Sands of Iwo Jima, 1947 film

This film had the three surviving flag raisers: Pfc. Rene A. Gagnon, Pfc. Ira H. Hayes, PM3C John H. Bradley. This film was dedicated to the USMC, who aided in its production. The screenplay was written by Harry Brown, the author of "A Walk in the Sun", and has some of the actors from that earlier film. It begins after the Battle of Guadalcanal. The men are sent to New Zealand to rest, retrain, and get more replacements. Sgt. John M. Stryker is the squad leader. He will learn the men what isn't in the books; their lives will depend on this. Sgt. Stryker leads the men in their drills and exercises. One soldier, Conway, joined for the family tradition. Stryker drives his men hard, they need training. He also has a family problem. The men have liberty in Wellington.

Stryker advises Conway against a long-term commitment. Stryker uses a novel training technique for bayonet drill [comic relief?]. Then the men get sent to their target: Tarawa. Stryker warns them of a difficult combat, no matter what the Navy guns and fliers have done. Actual scenes from combat are used. There are realistic combat scenes. Lives are spent to destroy enemy machine gun nests and take their objective. A few men are pinned down and short of ammunition. One returns for bandoliers, but tarries for a cup of coffee. The delay costs lives. "What kept you?" The marines must hold their position in spite of reduced strength. Tarawa was secured after four days of battle. The survivors leave the island for retraining in Hawaii. When mistakes are made, men die needlessly.

Sgt. Stryker learns about civilian life in Honolulu. Civilians also have a hard life. The unit has been trained and tested in battle.

Didn't appreciate the disc cover, not being written in English. Makes it look cheap. Will not watch it, probably give away or throw away.

I like John Wayne. The Sands of Iwo Jima is a movie that depicts some of the training and life of a US Marine in World War II. It has it's ups and downs, but still a good movie.
