Flags of our Fathers - Theater
* * 1/2
I guess I was expecting a movie on the same level as "Saving Private Ryan," but Clint Eastwood's film about the battle of Iwo Jima and the iconic image that it produced is fractured. There is the story about the battle itself, which includes some amazing visual effects; and then there's the story of the men who helped to raise the flag. The constant shifting between these two stories kept me uninvolved -- as did the wooden acting. This could have been a great film.
