  • Could have been epic, but really falls flat

    Many of us grew up on really great war movies.. Loved a lot of the CGI, was super cool, but the dialogue was flat. The acting was really flat. I was shocked how bad some of the directing was. For instance; the pilots who just landed their planes on the aircraft carriers seemed like they just came back from a picnic.. what is this an SNL skit? The scene where Woody says they sent a message the water purification facility was broke.. was the most flat scene ever! It's one of the most crucial elements of the story. Watch Greatest Events of WWII in color on Netflix, the Midway episode, it's amazing with lots of info I didn't even know.

    The historical inaccuracies are countless and the effects are all but cartoonish. SBD Dauntless bombers were defenseless slow slobs and without fighter cover would have been easy targets for zeros. Yet somehow this movie failed to even mention the Wildcats that made attacks possible. They simply took 6 or so planes and combined their use/capabilities into 2 models and skipped the rest. Doolittle's B25 taxis 50 feet, stops and takes off with 0 flaps. Doolittle used full flaps and every inch of deck for every B25. The movie is filled with this crap and the sum total is a distracting mess that's really hard to watch...
  • Great Movie!

    The Pearl Harbor movie was made a long time ago and is still one of the best movies and then this piece of junk comes out in the year 2020 and you can see all the props and the fake background this was terrible and I’m disappointed I spent 2 dollars to rent it and another hour viewing it to try and give it a chance to reel me in.......and then they dragged good actors into this low class movie shameful.

    Movie is like a soap opera, nothing more. Very disappointing. Overhyped and some overacting performances. I actually fell asleep and didn’t care. Trivial movie. Wait until it goes to a .99 cent rental. I know I wished I did. Smh.
  • Great movie

    The main problem I had with this movie was that it lacked the edginess, character development and historical detail of other war movies. The characters selected for the key roles often felt bland and misplaced. For example, selecting Woody Harrelson to play Chester Nimitz seemed like a poor choice. He is simply too youthful and mundane for such a role. Also, key tactical elements, such as determining the intended location of the Japanese invasion were just sort of dropped in, without any buildup or drama to accentuate their significance. The special effects were cool, but I like the version with Henry Fonda and Carlton Heston more.
  • Great Movie!

    Enjoyed the action and history lesson. Definitely a win in my book.
