Bad, but not as bad as Pearl Harbor!
20 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very Japanese movie with Japanese sensibilities. The special effects were good, but wrapped around a movie that appeared to have been filmed in a warehouse district half the time and on a paper mache island the other half. Hokey dialog dubbing, American servicemen cheering the breathless announcement of an aircraft able to defeat the Zero (while wearing muttonchops, long hair and moustaches), etc., etc. I could go on, but this is like watching a train wreck; you just can't keep your eyes off the inevitable disaster this movie is. At least there is no attempt at pomposity disguised as grandeur that was Pearl Harbor. At least the film maker's attempt is an honest one; one that is silly to a western audience, but a serious attempt nonetheless. If given the choice of watching the Michael Bay version of Pearl Harbor-lite and this, I'll watch this.
