It was made back in December last year and finally got on the market, most were Japanese titles and some were made for English as well. But they are not cheap!

Here a trailer on youtube...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jefoskxAt9A&feature=g-like

Been looking for these videos for sometime and found some at Amazon...
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_8?url=search-alias%3Dmovies-tv&field-keywords=yamamoto+isoroku&sprefix=yamamoto%2Cmovies-tv%2C138

Figured some of you guys would like to grab these before someone else does lol. The video look pretty interesting, i think i am going to wait and see if this get any cheaper within couple of months. Paying that much is pretty high.

The movie that can't be named, JFB edition. :)

Too bad it hasn't been subtitled in English. It looks like an interesting movie.

CGI looked good. The ships looked accurate, but I could pick out a pagoda from 3 blocks away

Not sure which sets would be best products, since there a single dvd and a set of three dvds. Been waiting for reviews and comments about them.

Looking forward to watch these series someday.

naw.....too harsh, There'd have to be a scene where Yamamoto fights Nagumo for the hand of the fair lady, only for their standoff to be interupted by SBD attack. After which Y and N each jump into an A6M and shoot down VS-6 in it's entirty.

THEN it would be the Japanese equivilent to TMTSNBN.






CGI looks good, but the air scenes are looking dangerously close to the Star Wars 'run down the Trench' The temptation to portray WW2 air combat as space battles seems to be universal.

Wow, what a harsh critic, glad you've never seen any of my porn movies....

In truth however, it could never be as bad as TMTSNBNed......

From what I heard many years ago, it's actually the other way around. George Lucas crafted the space battles in Star Wars so they looked like WW II aerial combat scenes from movies he saw as a kid.

Heard that myself. How he got that impression i'll never know. I watched many an episode of Baa Baa Blacksheep as a kid and I never saw anything like "The Run Down the Trench" in that show.

Those clunky Corsairs......

I can't help but laugh when i see an old episode. Why? because as a kid i honestly never noted that in the background of the scenes where the Corsairs were coming in to land......you could see roads and telephone poles. Occasionally you'd even see a truck or car driving past.

The setting of the series is supposed to be a South Pacific Island.

I'm pretty sure he was done being a kid before Black Sheep...

Think about the WWII movies. The run down the trench brings to mind Dam Busters, and another which name I can't recall fully, "Squadron" some number or perhaps some number "Squadron" about Mosquitoes running down a Fjiord to deliver bombs to a specific spot on a cliff face. Anything about the raid on Polesti might conjour that image as well. I'm sure there are others. He also mentioned scenes of gunners in bombers fending off enemy fighters. The scene where the Millenium Falcon is being attacked as it escapes the Death Star gave me that very thought as I watched Star Wars in the theater, seeing it the first time. I thought that part was just a cheap ripoff of WWII movies!

And then came Pappy's Lambs and Peter Frampton as a coast watcher.
That's when I said 'Ooookayyyy...I'm done'
The first couple of seaons were great.

The "Squadron" movie name you refer to is "633 Squadron".

Nope, the "Squadron" movie was "Mosquito Squadron"



I was just informed that we are both right. The idea for the run down the trench came from 633 Squadron. Having to fire the missles into the vent at the end of the trench came from Mosquito Squadron. In Mosquito Squadron they had to put a bomb into a doorway.

An English-subtitled version is available from Cine Asia here, (via Amazon.co.uk) on DVD for £9.99 and Blu-ray for £11.99. The DVD is PAL/Region 2; the Blu-ray doesn't say but is presumably also Region 2.

Here is the trailer for the subtitled version (shows several scenes that aren't in the Japanese trailer and has an English voice-over of Yamamoto and FDR). The Youtube page says that it's supposed to be available on VOD "soon", but I didn't see anything about that on Cine Asia's web site.

There are some pretty cranky comments on the Youtube page, and there's a review on the Amazon page that's totally asinine.

ETA: Upon a second look it appears that the VOD may be through LoveFilm (link on Amazon pages), though currently the film is only listed as available for mail rental.

Who needs subtitles? They're always just shouting at each other ominously, then grabbing each other by the throats, and finally pulling out their Samurai swords, all because one said to the other "How's your family doing? I hope well."

No, he got the one I meant right. There probably is another called "Mosquito Squadron", though.

Good movie that is lacking a bit... First, it makes Yamamoto out to be too much of a 'good guy' - hero type of guy, also, it's a little bit fast paced... Also lacking Yamamoto's fight with Navy Staff, like his threat of resignation in autumn of 1941. -Not part of the movie. Overall though, it's a good flick, with the most stupid title here in Sweden...

In Japanese the movie's title is: Commander in Chief of the Combined Fleet: Isoroku Yamamoto
In Swedish the movie's title is: Attack on Pearl Harbor

The movie is about the Admiral, Isoroku Yamamoto, basically from the attempt on his life in 1939 'til his death in september of 1943. The attack on Pearl Harbor itself is only a limited part of the movie...

Anyway, worth to see...

PS. If anyone here speaks or reads Japanese and wants the movie cheap, I'll sell you the Japanese Special Edition for a cheap buck. (It only had japanese subtitles so was useless for me. Payed premium for it. Nice box, two DVD's full of extra material. Biography booklet, etc. etc. But no international subtitles...)

Would be nice if they did subtitle it. Would pick it up if they had a US DVD version.

Kind of like Gettysburg...if you look close enough, you can see a car driving in the background, a modern day wrist watch...etc...

I agreed he was going to resignation back 1941 if things wasnt carried out his ways against Pearl Harbor, so many staffs didnt like the ideas and Nagumo suppose to abort if the United States agreed with the terms, Nagumo was furious and want to continue to attack. So guys dont take Yamamoto as a bad guy, he wasnt. He wanted to avoid war esp with USA, not only that they are stronger but they were his friends too. Tojo is the one is responsible for this and pissed off Yamamoto and other staffs, Tojo wanted total out wars!
