Finally I gave in and figured it could be a casual film to watch just to pass the time. But it was completely boring!The movie is simply a ton of action put together. It's not really about character development or a love story or anything. Just a ton of action. The reason I give the movie one star is because the film looks very good. The effects are great, the shots are good, and the color is spot on. But that does not save it for the terrible acting and awful plot.
(nl) wrote: Well-done documentary with readings from survivors who have passed on by actors, and reaccounts from actual survivors (both Japanese and Chinese). Very sad. The interviews with Japanese soldiers are very disturbing. The interviews with the victims are some of the most heartbreaking tales I've heard in a while.
(es) wrote: Tremendously realistic portrayal of the relationship of a father and son with totally different values and personalities. The father is dying and the son must now make his peace with the man who has never understood him and who has embarrassed him throughout his life. The acting is superb and the script is smart.

(us) wrote: Interesting movie, with a complicated plot and confusing characters. Sylvester Stallone dosen't play his usual character, although he would definatly play a badass cop, he instead plays one that lays low and stays out of business. We hardly get to know him it feels like, and his expressionless face and seemenly lack of emotions make him an interesting character. The other characters are good, who are almost all played by great well know actors like Robert-de Niro and Harvey Keitel. They preform well, and add more deapth and respect to the film. The plot is a bit complicated, and we wonder alot about why the corrupt cops are doing what they are doing mostly because it dosen't make sense. Although most of the characters are cops, we don't see almost anything for police action, and instead we hardly know they are police at all. Most of the time they are sitting around talking and not doing anything in particular and not much seems to be discussed. The first half of the movie consists mostly of this, and it's not until the second half that we really get insight to what's happening, and yet we still don't know for sure. The end where Stallone and Ray Liotta have a shootout against the corrupt cops at their house was really good, ans the fact that the sound was almost covered by the ringing in Stallone's ears really added to the feel. As a whole the movie was good, not great since the first half had its many flaws, and the second half still didnt add much excitement. So the film lacks thrill mostly, the characters have problems and so does the plot. Nice to see a change in Stallone's role, but he's better as his usual badass self.

A lovely film about getting old and getting over resentments of the past. Gorgeous scenery, amazing acting, and a beautiful score by jazz musician Dave Grusin. This film gets me to laugh and cry, especially the scene at the end when real father and daughter Henry Fonda and Jane Fonda reconcile their relationship. This movie is the definition of charming.

(mx) wrote: I am extremely repulsed by the critics reviews because the things that most of them said on here seem so naive. "like it shouldv been less of this or done different. it's the same as all the other movies". it's like they didn't pay attention to why the movie was even made. it's an absolute true story. documentaries were made on these characters before they even made this movie. To have changed anything about this movie would b to lie about the story of the characters. it may b a replica of other films but the difference is the other films are actual fiction. This story is not. it really happened. and what makes it even more bizarre is the kids who these characters were based on were actually children. 15-16 yr olds. so to compare a this to somethi like new jack city which is a fairy tale is to compare good fellas "a true story" to th god father. smh. naive
