Taking place towards the end of WWII, 500 American Soldiers have been entrapped in a camp for 3 years. Beginning to give up hope they will ever be rescued, a group of Rangers goes on a dangerous mission to try and save them.
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

I went to see this film havin read some of the negative reviews on this site.
The relationship between the main characters is excentley scripted and acted by the three excellent leads. Affleck who im my opinion is a brilliant actor and a great action star really shines in this movie. But the movie really belongs to the other two stars Beckinsale who i must admit was excellent even though i have never seen any of her movies. But of my favourite and up and coming actors Josh Hartnett who i thought was brilliant in both Halloween H2O and The Faculty really shines here and hopefully will promote him into the a list.
A lot was said about the boring first hour but i thought the first hour really went with lighting pace. A lot was made of the effects and they were absoultely brilliant but instead of making this just a effects movie they have added well rounded characters a interesting storyline and the effects add to the overall movie making it a real joy to watch. Unlike movies like the MUMMY RETURNS the effects characters and script are brilliant.
No review would be complete without a mention of Michael Bay a excellent director who makes this film a triumph.
