I know this movie has been out for a few years now. Some of the movie critics didn't like it. eff em.. what do they know anyways about movie making.
I watched Pearl Harbor today by myself... and cranked it. Yes the movie is long.. (two discs) but, it's such a great movie. I love it on several different levels.
First, it's based on fact. It's a movie, not a documentary.
Secondly, the fight scenes are some of the most reaslistic I've seen in a long time. The flying P-40's are wonderful scenes they way they were photographed. It seems to me.. and i'm no history or plane buff.. but to me anyway.. it seems like they really paid attention to the small details, to make sure it was as accurate as possible.
Thirdly, the cast was top notch. Jon Voight as FDR was excellent. Tom Sizemore.. the guys in EVERY war movie of late that I know of. He's great though. I really liked the friendship between Capt. Rafe McCawley (Ben Affleck) and Capt. Danny Walker (Josh Hartnett). Both were really good in this movie.
Do any of you all think this is a must see again movie like me? The dog fights in the air.. were what really kept my interest. BUt the movie is so much more than that too.
your thoughts on it please.
