Beware, this is the truncated version of the movie with 30 minutes cut from its original running time. Not only is this very noticeable from the choppy and uneven editing, it totally ruins the flow of the movie, leaving out key scenes. To make things worse the soundtrack is not 5.1, even though the original movie soundtrack was recorded in 6 channel stereo. Finally, its not the greatest transfer I have seen by any means. I doubt much restoration or remastering was done here. MGM should be shot!

This is a magnificent, beautiful, powerful and very, very clever and yet surprisingly nowadays mostly forgotten film. Below, more of my impressions, with some SPOILERS.

The cinema in the 60s is famous amongst other for spectacular super productions, very long sagas made with generous budgets and prestigious castings, betting on becoming a phenomenon to bring profit. There were some such films earlier, like "Gone with the wind" and "Ten commandments", but not many. It was only in the 60s that they appeared in large numbers, following the sensational success of "Ben Hur" in 1959 and to a lesser extent that of "Spartacus" in 1960.

Following those two precursors appeared "El Cid", "The longest day", "Cleopatra", "The fall of the Roman Empire", "Lawrence of Arabia", "Docteur Zhivago", "The sound of music", "How the West was won", "The sand pebbles", "The Dirty Dozen", "Patton", "My Fair Lady", "The greatest story ever told", "The Bible: in the beginning", "The guns of Navarone" - and also, last but definitely not least, "Hawaii".

Released in 1966 "Hawaii" was a great success - it ended n°2 at box office in USA this year, just behind "The Bible: in the beginning" and beating films like "Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf?", "Sand pebbles" and "A man for all seasons".

As other super productions from the 60s "Hawaii" was a long film - it lasted 189 minutes! Sadly, for reasons which I don't understand fully, all DVD releases available are, at 162 minutes, seriously edited, with many important scenes cut off. But even in its edited form this film is still EXCELLENT and IMPRESSIVE!

"Hawaii" is the adaptation of just one chapter from the novel "Hawaii" by the great specialist of historic mega novels, James Michener.
