The love story adds nothing whatsoever, but the battle sequences are stunning. It's disappointing because scenes like that deserve to be in a better film. It's for that reason, and that reason alone, Pearl Harbor manages to be a decent movie.

Ben Affleck was terrible in this movie and the action was bad too and so was the story.

The half star is for the undeniably thrilling bombing sequence. The rest is an unbelievably trite, flag-waving soap opera that is a total insult to the intelligence.

A film of friendship, Rafe (Ben Affleck) and Danny (Josh Hartnett) become First Lieutenants in the United States Army Air Corps. Evelyn Johnson (Kate Beckinsale) become involved. On December 7 the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. A very lengthy film with a romantic angle and lack of historical accuracy despite its title. The movie focused on the characters instead of the significant event. Its main characters didn't have onscreen chemistry and the effects filled flick with action still spelled boredom. Aside from the CG, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Jon Voight were the only aspects of the film interesting. Pearl Harbor had potential if it was taken over by a better director.

Somehow, a love story set in the days before the attack is too much drama for me. Overall, an OK pic. Since we all know how December 7 went, the love story is supposed to be the grabber, I guess. Watchable.

Not as bad as most people would tell you

Yes the factual components of this movie are all over the place, a lot of what happens at the end is just a lumped up hero story designed to become a full circle love story. The acting in the movie was good for the most part. The acting really gets knocked because Ben Afflek stars in the film, but if you look at the other actors involved you will find that Josh Hartnett does a good job. Cuba Gooding Jr. always does a great job and he doesn't slack on his skill in even slightly in this movie. Jon Voight as FDR was absolutely impressive in this role, he portrayed the president with both dignity and compassion.
I can look past the factual inaccuracies to see that there are some good parts to this movie. While it will never go down as being a great film, I don't believe that it should be st...
