Movie Info

This extravagant Japanese docudrama recounts the conflict between Japan and Russia during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05. The film was produced by actor Toshiro Mifune, who narrated the original Japanese print and starred as Admiral Heihachiro Togo. Throughout the film's methodically paced 120 minutes, newsreel footage is deftly combined with reenactments. Though by its very nature a violent film, the English-language version of Battle of the Japan Sea is rated G. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Nihonkai daikaisen (Battle of the Japan Sea)

Big budget Japanese war film about one of their more impressive naval battles. The effects are quite good, especially considering some of the effects from other Japanese war films. But in the end there is little to enjoy in this film outside of the battle scenes. The drama is pretty stale, the nationalism a little overplayed, and the voiceover repetetive and sadly necessary given the script.
