If this film still sounds too violent for your family, consider some older war movies that are less intense, yet still excellently made. Two examples are The Bridge on the River Kwai (also set in the Pacific conflict) and The Great Escape (about a group of POWs who take measures to free themselves). The movie Tora! Tora! Tora! is a carefully researched dramatization of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
