Honolulu Star-Advertiser

Possibly the richest testament Hollywood has yet made about the paroxysm of World War II ... an astounding movie on every level, not the least of which is its common humanity.

Sequences fade into the pack and make it difficult to differentiate one player from the others, much less remember them after the lights go up.

The film strives mightily to make some sort of affecting emotional epic about a bit of history that it itself acknowledges is actually footnote-worthy.

House Next Door

The film is confirmation of Paul Haggis's predilection for exploitation and easy sentimentality.

Eastwood's two-film project is one of the most visionary of all efforts to depict the reality and meaning of battle.

Witness to a great director's vision being slowly strangled by the work of a hired hack.

Reminds us of the great damage that can be done to society's most vulnerable by those blustering war mongers who are so very far away from the combat they are inciting.

carefully dismantling one heroic archetype only to replace it with another, more nuanced one

A pretty darn good, but not completely great, war movie that pays overdue homage to the WWII veterans who never made it home.

A quest to find the humanity behind the imagery of Iwo Jima that never gets beneath the skin to the real men who became heroes with a single camera shot.

Una fuerte y conmovedora película de guerra que es todo un alegato contra la irracionalidad, sobre todo la de los gobernantes que mezclan heroísmo con propaganda. Una nueva culminación de Clint Eastwood como director.

Apesar do tom de importância que empresta a si mesma, A Conquista da Honra é uma empreitada apenas razoável.

Writers William Broyles Jr. and Paul Haggis believe that they are contrasting the men's lives with their heroic image. Sadly, what they present to the viewer is yet another fabricated image, and one that is equally false.

Murphy's Movie Reviews

Who would have thought that Clint Eastwood would emerge as one of the best and most interesting filmmakers of the early 21st Century? Given his track record, I certainly wouldn't have. But with FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS he has made a superb, if uneven, film.

The film as a whole is missing something, with much of the problem lying with the cast -- including Barry Pepper, Jamie Bell and Adam Beach -- who are seriously bland.

Flags of Our Fathers is touched by greatness. It argues that soldiers may go into battle for country and glory but they always end up fighting for the survival of themselves and their comrades.

Here, the feelings run very deep, and dark as dried blood, with Clint aware that some things don't need to be said and others shouldn't be shown.
