gore and nauseating shots と生々しい描写が多々あるので、メトロポリスの言うようにOnly for those with a strong stomach.で、万人に勧められるものではないです。ただ、理屈で戦争はよくないということよりも、もっと生理的に戦争は嫌なものだと思い知ることが大切だと自分は信じているのであえて紹介させていただきました。

Remake of 1959 controversial anti-war piece

BY ROB SCHWARTZ | POSTED 1 WEEK AGO | ISSUE 1114

Why then would iconoclast filmmaker Shinya Tsukamoto choose to do a remake? Well, the fiercely independent Tsukamoto (known for Tetsuo: The Iron Man, 1989) has always taken an unusual route, and it’s fairly easy to argue Japan is in need of anti-war statements now more than ever.
(中略)
Tsukamoto alternates gore and nauseating shots with beautiful landscapes and lighting to highlight the soldiers’ misery. Though brutal and at times hard to watch, Tsukamoto admirably communicates the anti-war content of the originals. Only for those with a strong stomach. English title: Fires on the Plain. (87 min)


ジャパンタイムズの方もグロイ映像があることを書いていますが、好意的な批評を載せていて4つ星をつけています。

SPECIAL TO THE JAPAN TIMES

The film has been criticized for excessive gore, but from the accounts of combat I have read, Tsukamoto is simply portraying the grisly truth. And given his tiny production budget, he has done a far-better-than-expected job of conveying the incongruous mix of lush natural beauty and disturbing human degradation the film’s real-life models experienced in their jungle war.
The widening distance between that war and the present, with its instant amnesia toward anything not trending on social media, has given Tsukamoto a sense of urgency. For him “Fires on the Plain” represents a last chance to make the reality of war undeniable and unforgettable.
More than nearly any other Japanese war film, this is not only a testimony but a warning.
