Runtime: 183 mins Release Date: 24 May 2001
December 7th 1941. America received its worst attack of the Second World War. In the middle of it all, were two friends who had been through so much with each other since childhood that they were sure they would get out of the battle alive I love this film, I could watch it everyday, In fact, I do watch it everyday. Michael Bay couldn't have created a better cast. In my opinion, it was definitely worth all the money and hard work that everyone put into it. Josh Hartnett, is very hot and very good at acting. Along with co-star Ben Affleck who is very talented and could make any position <more>
of acting look real. The last half hour, contain some of the most exhilarating scenes of battle, ever seen in a film. The great acting makes the bond between the two friends all the more real during the fight sequences.Pearl harbour is an emotional story containing war and romance; two genres that it combines to make one of the best war films of the early millennium if not of all time!
Why do people hate this movie?! (by happy_hobbit_chic)
I thought this was an amazing movie, and I dont seee why people dont like it. Josh Hartnett and Ben Affleck are so talented in this movie, and the emotion in this movie is so true. The action sequences were incredible, but most people hat this movie because it was "mushy". Well, it's a love story, it's supposed to be romantic. I understand it almost had nothing to do with Pearl Harbor, but it was great all the same!
A Must See! (by andrew-29)
Forget the bad reviews of the critics, judge for yourself!Forget the true history, you are going to see a film not a documentary!Pearl Harbor is a must see, just go and enjoy the special effects, the fictitious story-line and the acting!
Superb film - Believable acting - Well written - Severely underrated (by D-Gal)
I seriously do not understand the utter hate toward this film by critics when writing their reviews. "Historically inaccurate" or "Just another love story" or "boring!"... If you want to see a film that is totally historically accurate, watch a documentary for heavens sake. This movie goes way out of proportion to what really happened that day in Pearl Harbor, but it is a MOVIE! Get over it. It's not supposed to be real. The film as a whole is brilliantly written; it's not too soppy with the romance and not too over the top with pure action. People are <more>
saying that it's just too much shoot 'em up and too many explosions. Well, I got news for you... They're at war! Bombs will go off and guns will be fired from all places possible. If you want to see a movie that's not so explosive, watch Twilight. To me personally, character development is very important in a movie and I believe Pearl Harbor succeeded with this. I grew attached to individuals and felt vulnerable as a member of the audience at the best of times. Absolutely superb watch, and I'd highly recommend it! If you're offended by a film not being entirely accurate, steer clear and stick to your documentaries. 9/10! Excellent!
The Greatest Love Story in War-time (by fernandez_1989)
I really love this movie which is awesome for me in every detail. I was speechless after watching it with my husband and other friends at home. I cried and cheered all the time. My friends also loved it. Because this is one of the greatest love stories ever told and deserves 10 points rating- no doubt about it. That makes me think how silly are people who cannot appreciate this movie.Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Empire of Japan, and the American democracy entered the war to protect its freedom. Japan forced the USA to get into the war and the strength of American people during that <more>
exhausting struggle turned out to be the road to victory.Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett are terrific handsome American guys who make it big in this movie. Kate Beckinsale plays an American voluntary nurse who enlists to serve her country and finds love.The music by Hans Zimmer is absolutely awesome... I bought the CD of the original soundtrack the same week I watched the movie.All in all this is a must-see movie for intelligent people able to understand history and the sacrifice payed by the Greatest Generation of Americans to defeat the Japanese and German imperialism and bring democracy and freedom to the world.
I've read more than enough negative reviews of Pearl Harbor to last until next summer's blockbuster comes out. Apparently, looking for the good elements in a film is old-fashioned and naive, but I found plenty to appreciate in this film.The cast is charming, funny, and believable. The stars are, perhaps, too attractive, but this is the way almost every movie is cast. Why rake Pearl Harbor over the coals for choosing appealing actors? The characters are memorable, and real, despite some cornball dialogue. Were all the critics expecting Shakespearian complexity in a big-budget <more>
re-creation of 1941? Even a less-than-poetic script can't diminish the impact made by this fine cast, who give the "greatest generation" an accessible, familiar face.Pearl Harbor's romanticized look at pre-war America certainly misses the mark on historical accuracy, in favor of beautiful shots and a politically-tactful summary of world events that led America into war. If the film had concentrated on facts and figures, it would have been an expensive documentary, and an obvious rip-off of "Tora! Tora! Tora!" Instead, Pearl Harbor gets involved with a group of people who lived through an extraordinary period of world history. It gives the audience, especially young adults, the impetus to seek out more information about the attack on December 7, and World War II as a whole. Even those who criticize the film have been motivated to examine its flaws and to exhort the public to learn the "real" story of Pearl Harbor. Education and awareness of America's past is a positive outcome, regardless of the critical review of a film.As for the motivation behind Pearl Harbor, I must admit this is the weakest point. The film was not made for love of country, but for love of money. Released on Memorial Day weekend, in the year that will see the 60th anniversary of the attack, Pearl Harbor was carefully calculated to be a success. It is not as visionary and artistically inspiring as it should be, but it can be appreciated on its own merits.The film is touching and well-acted. It succeeds as a love story, a war epic and an action spectacular. It is well worth the price of admission, and is a fine addition to the ranks of WWII films from Hollywood's past.Rated 8 of 10.
"If I had one more night to live, I'd want to spend it with you." (by Nazi_Fighter_David)
The film opens in 1923 and shows farm boys Rafe and Danny as close friends in Tennessee, who share a passion for flying... They join the United States Army Air Corps in 1941 and both show an ability at being daring pilots while training under the command of Jimmy Doolittle, in Long Island...Their life is changed when they encounter a beautiful dedicated nurse called Evelyn Johnson...Rafe falls for Evelyn and volunteers for service in the Battle of Britain He continues his love affair by letters with Evelyn who ends up with Danny in Hawaii - Pearl Harbor, where the US Pacific fleet is <more>
gathered at rest... News comes back that he was shot down over the English Channel, and assumed dead Keenly distressed, Evelyn eventually finds relief in the arms of Danny... They go too far, too soon, leading to exactly what you would expect...By the time that Rafe reappears, Evelyn is in love with Danny Kate Beckinsale brings warmth and intelligent sweetness to her character... She is quietly at a loss, holding back her tears, when she finds out she must choose between the two charming fighters she loves...The film honors those who underwent Pearl Harbor The great shots plunge viewers into mass destruction, chaos and incompetence... We see hundreds of Japanese planes approaching towards their unsuspecting targets Sailors sauntering along the decks of their moored vessels when the torpedo planes, armed with special shallow-running devices, headed for the battleships, their prime targets Bay's cameras move sometimes fast, and sometimes in slow motion to show the savage blow Scenes, out of focus, evoke the sense of disorientation and fear, also of bravery in the midst of confusion in the island's base hospital...'Pearl Harbor' is a fight between love and glory against a backdrop of America's entry into World War II... The film has some moments of excitement and grandeur Schwartzman gets some extremely nice-looking scenes of the Hawaiian twilight... His shots of Katesitting atop a rock, reading Rafe's love-letters, totally unaware to the striking Hawaiian surf that threatens to pull her out to seaare incredibly beautiful
Est-Ce fabuleux!"Ma, you know who else lived through World War II besides grandpa? I did", I screamed at her from outside the house, while still getting down from the cab that I took from the cinema. What a great movie it was. The images of the gusty air-force combats and the invasions are still in my head, the sounds of the thunderous cannons still roar in my ears, and the gentlemanliness of the army men, with their uniforms and planes, still leave me grasping for more, as did the jam-packed theater. Why did it have to get over? Why couldn't it last just a tiny bit longer? The <more>
sky high aerobatics, the machine guns, the fighter jets, the discipline, the pretty army women, the well ironed suits, the line of command, and the bigger than life climax, I adored it all. The chemistry between the leads is something to look forward too. The unconventional romantic relationship and the intimate scenes between the lovers spice up the movie and give a new twist to the plot.If you want to feel the thrill and the emotion of being at war and love at the same time, of being away from home, of being behind enemy lines, and of leading your country to victory, go and watch Michael Bay's extraordinary take on the events leading up to and involving thereof one of the most disastrous catastrophes of the era.Michael Bay never misses a chance to leave his viewers awestruck with his action packed works, with strands of deadly love. And he did it again with Pearl Harbor. The movie, though titled Pearl Harbor, is much more than that just the bombings. The war is twofold: between countries and between hearts. Army Air Corps, Affleck and Hartnett, thick as thieves, become the target of a deadly love triangle, with the potential of encompassing their friendship, falling in love with the ever-pretty Evelyn, which results in a love-hate relationship being fired up between the two captains. But Bay has something new to offer rather than the clichéd. Their friendship is tested when they are sent off to war together, resulting in their hatred for each other ultimately turning, or rather returning, into a brotherly bond. The climax is sort of depressing, but that is overcome by the patriotism of winning the war.The motion picture is certainly not for the faint hearted. It is a mixed bag of emotions, and it is one that has many holes in it. The movie takes its audience through a variety of different emotions, starting at a high with love and patriotism, progressing to hatred and anger, and then ending into sorrow and dismal. The movie throughout, holds its viewers onto their seats and unleashes a surprise, a twist, every few frames, bounding them to think on what may follow next.
Pearl Harbor was an excellent film! Passionate love story with complications mixed in with history debatable on accuracy though and action. I thought it was an awesome film and I will definitely buy it when the DVD hits stores! The only thing that I didn't like was the hype that led up to the film. I think that may have hurt it at the box offices which is too bad because it really is as good as Titanic but never should have been marketed that way.
