I am NOT one to watch war movies,, but this was very well done. There is only about 25 minutes of violence in a film over 2 hours in length. The story line is really good and such a pleasant surprise. Great acting, directing and it is based on a true story.

Really good movie--great scenes of slaughtering slopes; nothing better than killing gooners, slopes, gooks: but, I'd much rather have spent my combat days killing vermin mus.

Excellent portrayal of a man, who against all odds because he was a conscientious objector during WWII in the Pacific became a tremendous hero to those he saved.

Other: The whole issue of war is violent, and so that is why I think it is suitable for over 18 to watch.

Violence: Extreme violence (war sequences) about 1 hour into the movie. Before that, there is some domestic violence and some beating up.

Violence: Gruesome, realistic depictions of battle, death, and Japanese harikari (suicide as an honorable act). Also emotional and physical abuse/beatings of the conscientious objector.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: In addition to a ton of nasty war violence, there is a scene early on of a man's leg graphically injured in an accident. A young man's parents fight; one holds a gun and seems to contemplate turning it on himself. Boys brawl and one is hit with a brick.

Sexual Content: A soldier's naked rear is visible as he lounges in the barracks before being forced to run the obstacle course. Bunkmates rib him about his anatomy. Another man is reading a magazine with a drawing of a topless woman. A married couple kisses passionately.

Violence: Here's where the movie gets the R. I saw it in theaters and had to look away several times. Relentless wide shots of shooting, maiming, and killing during the last half, and numerous close-ups of nasty injuries being treated.

Coarse Language: Occasional, relatively mild language. No f-bombs.

Tons of quotes in IMDb already but this one:
I've done everything they asked me, except this one thing, and I'm being treated like a criminal just 'cause I won't kill.
-You tried. Nobody can say you didn't. But who are you going to save in prison?
Probably nobody.
-Then why can't you just pick up the stupid gun and wave it around? You don't have to use it, just meet them halfway.
-I can't do that.
Yes, you can. It's just pride. Pride and stubbornness. Don't confuse your will with the Lord's.
-Have I been prideful?
Maybe I am prideful. But I don't know how I'm going to live with myself if I don't stay true to what I believe. Much less how you could live with me. I'd never be the man that I want to be in your eyes.
-I fell in love with you because you weren't like anyone else and you didn't try to be. Do not think for one moment that you will disappoint me. I will love you no matter what.
