Nice job!

It looks really great! This movie really deserve a more complete page, and now it has one. Wonderful -MT2008

Thanks, it's been sitting at the bottom of my DVD pile for a long time but I finally got it done. I also have The Jackal coming up, as well as making Flags of our Fathers look good. I also have The Last Boy Scout and The Mask, so I'll be busy this month. - Gunmaster45
I think you should be commended for sitting through this. I tried once and left with the impression that the movie is actually longer than the war it was based on. Vangelis 12:56, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Give John a purple heart and an Bronze Star. I didn't like the movie either.-Oliveira 13:52, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Type 92 HMG

Judging by the shape (and position, for that matter) of the grips, most or all of the photos purported to show the Type 92, would actually appear to show the earlier Type 3 HMG. Also, the examples illustrated do not have the conical flash hiders that Type 92 usually have. 00:07, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

I know the armourer for this movie and have fired that particular gun. Its a Type 3 converted to fire 7.62mmx51 blanks (for a readily available supply of blank ammo) Avatar 09:52, 8 May 2012 (CDT)

If you are going to change the list for this weapon system you need to fix all the links.--phoenixent 10:16, 8 May 2012 (CDT)

The Death of Keck

Keck blows his own butt off by pulling a grenade by the pin, I get that, but if the safety lever (the spoon) is free to fly off and arm the grenade, how does the grenade remain attached to Keck's person? It is my understanding that grenades were worn by inserting the safety lever of a grenade into loops on a soldier's webbing or belt. Were that the case, Keck's grenade should have dropped to the ground before exploding. Regardless, he shouldn't have played around with the pin. 01:20, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

There's not a whole lot of research went into this film (as is obvious to anyone who knows anything about this battle, this theater, this war, or Japan as a whole). It's probably a matter of plot convenience. As a side note, am I the only one who found this scene hilarious? --That's the Way It's Done (talk) 23:32, 17 March 2014 (EDT)

M1928A1 Thompson

Judging from the sights it's actually an M1928 Thompson. Sangheili1155

Type 96 or Type 99?

I think both of these screencaps:


Are actually of the Type 96 Light Machine Gun. They both have straight barrels and no conical flash hider. -- Crackshot (talk) 15:00, 7 May 2013 (EST)
