In the last half-hour, the story, like the Japanese, loses its way; lacking any clear-cut goals except survival, the film becomes repetitive. Letters From Iwo Jima is a necessary movie; too bad it's not a great movie.

(Stephen Hunter, Washington Post)

Subdued and respectful: a floral tribute presented at a celluloid ceremony.

(Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
