3.0 out of 5 stars 2nd rate Pearl Harbor 30 April 2006
In 1970 the world was educated about the raid on Pearl Harbor when they saw the American/Japanese co-production 'Tora! Tora! Tora!'. In 2001, producer Jerry Bruckheimer went down the same road. Unfortunately his effort was sub-par when compared to the earlier film.

Now, I tend to treat this film too harshly sometimes, but the flaws are still there. Being a connoiseur of the War Film genre, I believe this to be a fairly poor war movie. The love story is too contrived, and comes across as Hollywood, not real life. Dark Blue World (2001) has a similar love story but it was made far more sincere.

Secondly the war action is too computer generated. I love to see real aircraft participating in realistic re-enactments of aerial combat. Here, there is an over abundance of CGI, and the CGI is used in a way that puts me off. In my opinion, CGI's place in war films is too add to the realism. Here, the CGI has the opposite effect in most cases. It just looks fake. And if CGI models are used, it is much more effective if the shots created appear as though they are the type of shots that would have been obatined if they hade done it for real. This idea of putting the (virtual) camera is places it could never be in real life simply tells me that what I am seeing is fake. That is very distracting when I'm watching the film.

The acting is all right. I have no problem with the actors, but I certainly would never rank them amongst the greats of cinema history. That used to be one of the great pleasures of watching war movies - they had the best actors in the industry. Check out films like Battle of Britain and A Bridge Too Far. They had amazing casts with the greatest acting talents of all time.

So what is my overall opinion???

4.0 out of 5 stars ULTIMATE EDITION- DISC 1 - ONLY THE MOVIE 11 Jan 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Be aware if you decide to order this item from this page, some sellers just sell the disc-1 of the complete set. This product is an official release under the label "Ultimate edition, disc-1, "The movie" that only includes the film (176') and no extras at all. No cardboard box, 4 collectible postcards or 24 pages booklet included. It just comes in a standard pvc case. English languague and subtitles only. Really dissapointed if you expected to get the full set of three discs with a plethora of extras.

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst 'blockbuster' ever? 12 Jan 2009
Whilst talking with a few new friends recently the topic came up of worst film ever. After expressing my opinion (Pearl Harbor) the majority where was I by their reaction! How can anybody think this film is any remotely good? Terrible dialogue, pathetic love story and even worse 'acting'. And, snooze. goodnight.

wow i somehow clicked on 2 stars insted of 1 and i cant change it? I wanna give it 0 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good film, worth the watch 10 July 2014
By Diane
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great film! Don't judge it against facts as it's only loosely based, judge it on being an intense, great effects, romance, tear jerking film. It is long, but to edit any of the chapters out would have made the film disjointed. I normally don't watch films longer than 2 hrs, haven't seen countless blockbusters because of the film length, but this one had me gripped from the onset!

Again, don't judge it against real events, had the film title been anything else, I don't think many of the negatives would have been written.
