Pearl Harbor

Tuesday, December 11, 2001Rating: 3 Rocks (David 3, Krista 3)

Summary: An epic-length telling of the day that will live in infamy, through the eyes of three people. (PG-13)

Pros: Focusing on the story of individuals lends a remarkably personal look at war, and how it affects people. Very good to get you thinking about the value of life, and how fragile it is.

Cons: Way, way too long. Also, war doesn't spare the heroes, making the whole saga of these two guys really improbable. And, for all the trouble taken in digitally recreating the attack, it was too fake. The smoke alone in that attack would have made "filming" extremely difficult..

Who: A war movie - watch with caution, and no kids.
