“Otoko-tachi no Yamato” was one of the blockbusters of 2005 in Japan. The story revolves around a group of crew members of the Yamato Battleship. It begins with a woman named Makiko Uchida looking for someone who can take her to the resting place of the Battleship Yamato on the 60th anniversary of its sinking. She meets Katsumi Kamio who served on the Yamato when he was young, through Kamios reminiscences about his time aboard the Yamato the story is told.

Good and at times very sad movie, the special effects do look great considering this is not a multi million dollar Hollywood production. Of notable exception are some CGI shots of the attackine planes, they turn more like cars then aircraft…  Sadly i could only watch a dubbed version which was terrible, hopefully a subtitled edition will be released soon.
