Storyline: Pearl Harbor is a classic tale of romance set during a war that complicates everything. It all starts when childhood friends Rafe and Danny become Army Air Corps pilots and meet Evelyn, a Navy nurse. Rafe falls head over heels and next thing you know Evelyn and Rafe are hooking up. Then Rafe volunteers to go fight in Britain and Evelyn and Danny get transferred to Pearl Harbor. While Rafe is off fighting everything gets completely whack and next thing you know everybody is in the middle of an air raid we now know as "Pearl Harbor." Written by shoppingurl3

Good action effects do not save this disaster of a film...
I can honestly say that I can not remember the last time I saw a film this bad.

The film tries to do a Titanic by introducing the Pearl Harbor story through the eyes of two friends (Affleck and Hartnett) who go off to war and a love triangle with nurse (Beckinsale) they both meet.

The love story is predictable and corny. Over half the film is devoted on the two friends and their relationships to the nurse trying to give a back story to the characters so that you will feel for them come the impending attack. It does not work. It is pure cheese and is boring as well. I kept looking at my watch, wondering if anything would happen. During the film you feel nothing for the characters, seeing them as nothing more than the "pretty faces" of Hollywood, rather than character actors who would add to a convincing (I wish it only was) storyline. If this film wants to replicate Titanic, then it should sink with out a trace.....

The attack sequence on Pearl Harbor does liven things up a bit. But being already over an hour and a half into the film, it seems somewhat late to pick up the tempo after so much boredom.

During the attack sequence there were many shots that reminded me of the open sequence of Saving Private Ryan and of the sinking in Titanic. I guess that this is unavoidable given the nature of the film. However in both cases I was given the impression that the film makers (Michael Bay) were coping the techniques, and were not improving on them. Bay's typical use of slow motion in the effects was also overly used to the point of yawning with each successive slow shot. This was a shame as the special effects were otherwise excellent and the only saving point of the film.

Finally the retaliatory strike on Tokyo was again a master of special effects, but this whole section of the movie seemed like another film and seemed out of place. That as least was consistent with the poor pacing in the rest of the film.

I rented the film on DVD. I am glad that I only wasted 4 bucks. The DVD transfer is very good and the sound (DTS) was masterfull.

Score:

Sound (DTS): 10/10 Effects: 7/10 (let down by too much slowmo) Story: 1/10

Overall: 4/10

Could have been better
This is supposed to be a World War 2 based movie. Its the sort of movie anyone would expect to be an accurate enough dramatisation of events that actually happened.

Instead what we get is an attempt to make another Titanic by including a love triangle that is dominant over the whole history aspect. It just doesn't seem right.

Being a historic epic, they could have cut down on the whole love story and focused more on what would have been relevant such as the Japanese preparation of the attack and the situation President Roosevelt was finding himself in. The sequence of the actual attack on Pearl Harbour was spectacular! Perhaps if they extended it and made it a more major part of the film it would have been more worthy. Another major flaw with this movie is that after the attack sequence the movie dragged on for another hour trying to give an epilogue which was totally irrelevant.

I reckon if these were taken aboard, then Pearl Harbor would have been a much better movie and perhaps would not have flopped at the box office.

Superb film - Believable acting - Well written - Severely underrated
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 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!

an embarrassment of a film
It was stunning how terrible it was. I was cringing throughout the movie, trying not to let the inaccuracies and ridiculous melodrama get to me, but once the Day of Infamy Speech was changed I called it quits. It's an embarrassment of a film hiding behind a few big names and a lot of special effects. This is one of those movies that we, not as a nation but as a species, should bury. Watching a bad porn would be less degrading.

If you like your soap operas melodramatic by soap standards set in a quasi-historical backdrop with an over inflated budget and have brain power less than or equal to that of a can of Cheese Whiz this is the movie for you.

My turn to bomb "Pearl Harbor" with a bad review
This movie is in league with Titanic. It is a story of a tragedy, turned into a sappy love story, which seems to be a trend in Hollywood. First of all, this movie is historically incorrect in so many ways, that I'm not even going to use up my energy listing the inaccuracies. Then again, when is Hollywood ever historically accurate?

The love story itself is totally unbelievable and stupid. Affleck gets shot down, survives, and his friend falls in love with his girlfriend. What a slut! What a stupid story! You got your typical hot-shot American pilots flying around like a bunch of idiots, the sappy love story, the "USA wins the day" at the end, even though Pearl Harbor was far from a victory, the Japanese attacking and killing everybody they see, making the Japanese look like complete evil heartless bastards, etc.

Why does Hollywood think that taking a tragedy and turning it into a love story is a good idea? What's next? The Hindenburg? TWA flight 800? The Lusitania? The WTC? Come on! Are people really running out of ideas this much? I'm being very lenient giving this movie 2 stars. The only reason I'm doing that is because I have seen worse.

Pearl Harbour
when the script is bad, there is no Oscar winning actor, director or cinematographer that can mend it, not that this film had any that fall in this category. This is a typical example of film makers at the verge of career ending taking the money from a more than wealthy and generous as well as stupid and uninspired producer and not caring of public opinion or respect of history events. Titanic was better than this and I believe that one has plenty of "worst film ever in cinema's history" awards on its shelf. If Affleck had a chance at acting by taking Damon with him at all times, he definitely proves that he made a mistake in going solo and he never really recovered from this picture either. Fiascos like these are hard to forget.

Leave it to Michael Bay to give action a bad name.
First. This movie had great sets and decent actors and could have been something more than just window dressing if not for one major fly in the ointment...MICHAEL #@!$ING BAY!!! Why does this no talent hack continue to get work? I'll tell you why, because he has a sure fire formula working for him. He signs on to big budget flicks loaded with oodles of special effects and he knows all he has to do is launch all of the effects on the screen and people will pay big bucks to see it. Never mind the fact that every other element he is in charge of is going to suffer irrevocably. The Michael Bay motto seems to be, Bells and whistles to the point of irritation. I have never seen a movie of his yet where you couldn't stop groaning at the tired clichés, shotgun editing, and junior high dialouge.

Pearl Harbor, I think, Is a special turd in the Michael Bay kitty litter box. Not only is it too long, its too trite, too hokey, too dull and too saturated with missteps that only a joke of a director like MB can perpetrate. Mark my words, If they keep giving MB more directing jobs he will soon be on the fast track to beating out legendary schlock director "Ed Wood" for the title of "Worst Director of all Time".

I love that film
I watched it several times and most of all I love that love story, the setting and the atmosphere. As it is said in the trivia to the film here on IMDb Michael Bay received hundreds of letters of elder people who expressed that he got it right at what it was like at those times. And that is what I felt when I watched the movie for the first time. I really do not understand how some critics did not notice and did not respect and acknowledge that Michael Bay and his crew were able to bring us back to the early forties during war times. The behavior of the people, the clothes, the music, the band, the dressing, the make up of the women and the innocence of the (well, some) girls and boys looking for love are so impressive. I love the dialogs and the acting. The other main part of the film - what happened before, during and after the attack - is also very well shown, to my opinion. I love the talks of Alec Baldwin as Dollittle with the two main characters and the acting of Baldwin as well of Jon Voight as Roosevelt or Dan Arkroyd as intelligence officer. Michael Bay got it right. He focused on the main occurrences of the Pearl Harbour attacks and set them up quite well.

There are a lot of lines and short sequences in the movie that are worth of watching.

One Word: Eh...
While the actual Pearl harbor event is pretty cool, the love story is way too long and just over-all pointless. Ben Affleck's character went out with this chick for like one day, then he gets all mad when he comes back to find that his friend (who's name I can't remember...) is going with her. OK...

While it wasn't nearly as bad as critics claimed it was, but for 150 million dollars and 3 hours of film, I think it could've been better than a "Sub-par" movie at best.

Pearl Harbor ignores the subject matter and focuses on a bland and clichéd love story.
Pearl Harbor is set during the infamous bombing of, well, Pearl Harbor. This film is not about that. It is about two best friends who fight over a woman.

First off, I positively cannot stand Michael Bay. The first Transformers is enjoyable. The rest suck. Michael Bay is the scourge which plaques the film industry. He hacks at quality with a sharp axe of only wanting explosions and box office.

Second, Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett are so WOODEN. So is Kate Beckinsale. Her role would be better played by Morgan Freeman. That would make this production which I struggle to call a film WAY more enjoyable.

Third, I think I spotted a plot hiding in a stray piece of dialogue spoken at one point. Plot holes in this film dot the landscape like trees. I won't give it away, but you will see if you ever, ever decide to watch this movie. I highly recommend you keep your sanity and move past it at the DVD store. Get something nice out, like a drama which is actually involving.

All in all, Pearl Harbor ignores the subject matter and focuses on a bland and clichéd love story.
