Movie Reviews

Excellent
W. Noshie | Beirut, Lebanon | 04/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are into Historical movies, this one is for you.
The use of Atomic bombs on civilian cities and the changes they create in wars are devestating.
This 3 hours TV series is pretty similar to HBO's "Band of brothers" as far as acting, and telling the story, not to forget the great true war footage used through out, making it a definite must own to any person who is into this genre of movies or wants to know how all the decisions were taken during that hard period on both sides of the war.
Definitely highly recommended. "Hiroshima".

Hiroshima- eerily real portrayal
Nicholas Walters | Houston, TX USA | 09/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1995 TV miniseries was a good one, that got too little fanfare on Showtime, but it's worth owning on DVD. Most of the actors are not well known big names, but chosen because they resemble and act like President Harry Truman, Winston Churchill, Stalin, Hirohito, and the other US, British and Japanese military and political figures of the day. It's fullscreen, but that's fine since it was fullscreen when it premiered. Don't expect a massive battle scene or action, but the dialogue, footage, and interviews with actual living participants are worth the price of this DVD. This could be a staple for any World War II history class, or any professor teaching on US, Asian, or military history. Hiroshima is unflinching in its portrayal of the good, the bad, and the torn on both sides of the final days of World War II."
Fascinating
Mac the Knife | Raleigh, NC | 10/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Hiroshima" is a fascinating, factual portrayal of the events surrounding the conclusion of World War II. The inter-mixing of documentary and historically accurate drama was exceptionally well done, and it is obvious that the producers of this project took great lengths to not only be historically accurate, but to be as unbiased and neutral as possible."
Excellent history
Robert J. Scheppy | Zhu Hai, China | 05/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Is this a joint Canadian-Japanese production? The film kept me interested for 180 minutes. Historically, it seems very accurate."
