The Admiral - 10/10
aka Isoroku, Admiral Yamamoto etc.
This is one is about Admiral Yamamoto during WWII. Actually there's much more to it and it focuses on going to war with the USA and then the attack on Pearl Harbor and then Midway.
I watched this again last night and thought it was pretty much near perfect. There's so much stuff buried in this movie to think about and learn. I hope they make more movies like this in Japan and it gets a US release. It's accurate AFAIK and there's nothing that would keep it from getting a release.
It doesn't really take sides at all and has no problems pointing out mistakes the Japanese made during the war. I wonder how things would have turned out if the Japanese had sunk all the US carriers at Pearl Harbor like they had wanted (they were out to sea) and were able to take Midway. We only knew the Japanese were going to take Midway because we cracked their codes beforehand.
It reminds me a little of "Tora, Tora, Tora" but much more entertaining.
