He did not bother showing mothers grasping their kids while jumping off cliffs or the 'Japenese' soldiers executing our boys on site (instead he showed American soldiers executing two Japanese soldiers). After making that film, I would hope Mr. Hollywood Clint will make a movie about the Bataan Death March. Let's show the true colors of the Japanese. I doubt it though, Clint seems to be jumping on the typical Hollywood loon wagon.

After watching both films, I have been turned off by Clint Eastwood. This is coming from a HUGE Eastwood Westen movie buff.
Thanks, it sounds like you saved me from wasting a few dollars on the purchase of it. Maybe now I'll just rent it or wait for it to come out on HBO or something.
