Great naval battle scenes
20 February 2002 | by jamey923See all my reviews

I just visited the Mikasa (the flag ship of the japanese navy during the russo-japanese war, which is wonderfully preserved at yokosuka) on my last trip to Japan. They show this movie periodically down below in a small theatre. It had great naval battle scenes of the Japanese fleet beating the hell out of the Russians. Good stuff.
