The movement of heaven is full of power
16 February 2014 | by (Shanghai) – See all my reviews

For different with other war-reflection films, this one looks like reflecting, but actually is full of regret of defeat and not reconciled. As you can see, all the characters in the movie are fighting for the glory of empire, but I guess it would be called as glory if you are fighting for protecting your homeland, not invading others for gaining resources and profits, if that can be called as glory, the whole civilization is selfishness.

The tragedy of Japan is not about defeat, is about the whole country was involved into a crazy military fascism, all the people were jumping into the war torrent. Yamamoto is not a total anti-war commander, he's just against having war with USA, because he known USA well, and he concerned about opening war with USA will make all the advantages which Japan gained in Asia gone like illusion. So the movie model him like Nobel Peace Prize winner is quite funny.

I can understand Japanese still have sense of honor for their army, but actually in pacific war, against USA's powerful steel flood they only can show their crazy brave but nothing else. At the end of movie, when the radio sold the schedule of inspect out, actually after US Navy be aware that, General Nimitz quite hesitate if they should kill Yamamoto, because he thought Yamamoto is stupid enough what if Japan send a better guy after him.....

As a feature film, this one is quite boring; As a biographical film, this one makes Yamamoto a guy who is not an expert of naval battle, a famous gambler in WWII to be a very kind old grandpa-pa, a fan of chess, it's rather hard to swallow; As a anti-war film, this one reveals "The empire will still be honor if we don't open war with USA, then we can still occupy the Asia" more than anti-war, this is what threaten me.

USA tolerate Japan after WWII, because Japanese and even the emperor of Japan were totally kneel down like a watchdog, and America kept their emperor. All the Japanese fought WWII for their emperor, so "if the emperor has no guilty then we don't either", that's the reason Japan didn't reflect WWII like Germany, they only regret opening war with USA but not invading the other Asia countries.

USA hurts Japan, Japan kneel down, but to other Asians from the same ancient culture, Japanese got full of blood on their hands however, maybe for a nation like Japan, you have to be powerful like you can crash them, then they will bend for you, with a such neighborhood like this, we have to learn -- "The movement of heaven is full of power"!
