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...)
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!
