Man this really got lost in the third act.
Marines get trained under their tough but fair Sergeant John Wayne, and while they have contempt for him, they respect him on the battlefield as they take on Iwo Jima.
Except Iwo Jima is only for the last 25 minutes.
So what the hell were we doing the rest of time?
Just a crappy movie all around. The character development is beyond cliche, the battle scenes are just trench sitting, and is it just me or does John Wayne talk funny?
First John Wayne film actually. Not impressed. He seems like he’s got one trick.
At least we get the token Italian Jewish guy so we can watch him do his…
