Movie Reviews

A John Wayne double feature, can't beat that
Daniel Lee Taylor | GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas United States | 03/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is really great, a double feature of John Wayne's World War II classics. Both of these movies are favorites of mine and have a common theme. John Wayne is the the leader trying to develop the men of his command. Flying Tigers is the hotshot fighter pilot movie. Can John Wayne tame a hotshot pilot who is out for his own glory? John Carroll is great as the flamboyant hot shot who learns his lesson the hard way, at the cost of another's life. Sands of Iwo Jima is a classic that way an Oscar nomination for Wayne. Can he reach the son of an officer and friend? Can he find a way to make John Agar grow up? This features used actual footage to add to the realism. This is a bargain, get it now!"
John Wayne 2-DVD Pack Sands/Flying Tigers
Robert T. Lukomski | Milwaukee, WI, USA | 07/07/2008

"Easily two of Wayne's finest films. If you like John Wayne, you should buy this 2-DVD set. The film quality is great, very clear. There are 2 separate DVDs in one case. Both films are very entertaining on a few levels. The storyline/plot is interesting and causes the viewer to want to find out how it concludes, the characters are multi-facetted and believeable, and the action scenes in both films are very well done. I heard that they used actual WWII combat footage for some parts of the Sands of Iwo Jima, but I can't confirm if this is correct. Often you'll see companies putting one great film packaged with a not so great film, but in this case, both movies in the set are winners. You can't go wrong with this 2-DVD set."

"John Wayne's best of the best war movies, Sands Of Iwo Jima, Flying Tigers, showcase the Duke at his take charge military best. Sands Of Iwo Jima, a prime example of fighting men in action, featuring real World War II footage, and as you're watching this film you think about joining the Marines, when they're raising the American Flag on top of Mt. Suribachi. John Wayne was nominated for an Oscar for the role of Sgt. Stryker, the tough no-nonsense Sgt...Flying Tigers, another piece of war history- U.S.A. aiding China against Japan, in which World War II started shortly afterwards, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. The basic scenario-The Duke is Gordon in command of this independent flying unit of expert gung-ho pilots playing it for keeps, always keeping tabs on their daily Zero kills. This Republic Pictures dvd is remastered, black and white like the original films at a reasonable price, can't beat two John Wayne classic war films on one."
