Peter Travers on 'Flags of Our Fathers'

Posted By on Mon, Oct 16, 2006 at 5:14 PM

Flags of Our Fathers is a film of awesome power and blistering provocation. An amazing feat, since Eastwood is tied to the nonfiction best seller that James Bradley wrote about his father, John “Doc” Bradley, the last survivor among the six soldiers who raised the flag on Iwo Jima. . .

Travers also says that Adam Beach is a lock for a best supporting actor nomination.

Here's the full review from Rolling Stone.
