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...

Thanks for the mini-review; two more mostly negative reviews have appeared on Amazon.co.uk in the last couple of days, and I was becoming concerned that the movie might actually be bad, rather than just not meeting the ignorant expectations of the reviewers.

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 think there was a car visible in the background in Lord of the Rings too.

I guess I haven't noticed that. Is it in one of the forest/country side scenes?

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.

Well, I thought it was good, even considering I payed 163$ plus shipping for the super-duper boxed special edition that didn't contain english subtitles, then another 35$ for a regular copy with english and swedish subtitles just to wath the bloody thing. Thought I'd find a torrent file, but, oh no!

Anyway, it cost me a pair of trousers and a shirt and a half but I still consider it a good movie and wasn't disappointed.

edit: enjoyed it more than the 'Yamato' movie from a few years back, which I also approved of...

It's in the background when Sam and Frodo are out in the middle of a field.

Apparently Peter Jackson didn't see it when filming and was wondering what people were talking about after the movie was released. It was edited out of the DVD.

I recall seeing it in the movie when I saw it in the theater.

After reading this, for some reason, I had to find out. I did a very quick search and found both the 1968 and 2011 Yamamoto movies at a number of different torrent/free movie sites. I will not say where I found these movies.

I only state that they are there, just like the sun is up there.

I do not recommend that you go to any of these sites or to the sun for that matter.

In both cases, you will get burned.

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

I discovered that Blu-ray actually had different regional encoding from DVD, and, further, supposedly most Blu-ray discs don't have it. So possibly the fact that it's not mentioned on Amazon.co.uk's page for the Blu-ray version means that it can be played anywhere. I'm going to try to find out from Cine Asia.

Yeah it wont work on US or imported US Blueray DVD Players, luckly i had my pc to run it by switching the region (Japan) and also record it for DVD so i can watch it in my family room. The movie is pretty good, but there some things what puzzled me or whoever made the subtitle made mistake. So one is when Pearl Harbor was about to be attacked, the english subtitle mention Dec. 8th 1941. Didnt show the The Battle of Coral Sea. During the Midway Operations, The Japaneses mention that they spotted US carriers by submarines (half-way from Midway to Pearl) though they didnt detect til it was too late, another word they arrive too late. Its possible they detect the Yorktown during the delay to join up the Task Group to point luck, North-East of Midway. Also forgot, they didnt show carrier-borne torpedo bombers attacking the fleet either.

SpitfireIX, that is true and they didnt mention that is needed region 2 to be able to play the dvd movie, except the orginal Amazon did. Well guess you guys will have to blame that one on the Brits lol. Anyway good details and if you watch it, you will noticed the Yamato is carrying four 6.1"/45 triple mount turrets, one bow, stern and both side of the ship. Later on im sure they refit those sides into quick firing AA guns.

Here i posted a screen shot of yamato...

I though so, i remember reading some Yamamoto books and something about 8th of December, though it was taken places in Philipines. But that more than twenty years ago.

Well the movie is worth getting, they did a great job making all these accurate models to feel the real thing. Keep looking i am sure you will get it.

My review: good movie.
If you 've ever watched Japanese anime, this movie has that vibe in its acting and directing, which means forced sentimentality in certain places. Entirely tolerable though, even if you're not used to Japanese movie making. As others said, his threat of resignation was not shown. Effects were mostly good, except that the explosions looked somewhat fake. Best moment of the movie for me, the attack on Akagi... and Nagumo crying (I don't know if that happened in RL). In general, Nagumo was depicted a bit unfairly, imho.

Well some movie consumers simply want effects, effects, (and love story) and thats all. Holes in plot, flat character or acting...doesnt matter for them. I call them cash cows.
But fortunately there are wachers which DO care for story, characters, historycall accuracy and také effects simply as way hot to tell story.
Didnt looked at that movie, but will surely do.
And need to say both last star treks, man of steel, THTSNBN were total s***s.
