I've been thinking about seeing this for the past week, not really cause of the trailers or anything but mainly because of this video. YouTube - Flags Of Our Fathers-Frontline And i was just wondering, is it anything like saving private ryan? Very intense, very graphic. I'm not really into the stuff that's JUST artsy but also very actiony.

It's worth seeing, it's as much about the war at home really than just the war itself. Not a ton of action in it though to be honest. Not nearly as much as SPR.

Personally, I thought Flags was pretty good, but I liked Eastwood's other WWII film a lot better, Letters From Iwo Jima. Not a total action film either (more than Flags has), but it's very interesting to see the war from the Japanese perspective.

I never got to see Flags of Our Fathers, but I really enjoyed Letters From Iwo Jima. It was refreshing to finally see a war film where one side did not have a monopoly on humanity. I would definitely recommend seeing it.
