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
While scouting locations for the film, the producers found that the modern city that most resembled 1942 Tokyo was Gary, Indiana. A team photographed that city from the air and integrated the resulting footage into the film. For that reason, during the depiction of the Doolittle bombing raid on Tokyo, the planes are actually bombing Gary, Indiana. See more »
"Mitchell" Field, on Long Island, is actually called "Mitchel Field" (with one "L"). See more »
Out of any actors Bay could've picked, he chose Ben. Ben ruined the entire love story and the whole macho man crap with his ridiculous drunk impression. Out of any main character they had to pick "the daredevil" What a waste of a high budget.
And that last seen of Ben and Josh gunning down the entire Japanese army. Now that was a scene made up of 200% bull. They made the enemy soldiers look like target practice and it seemed as if they couldn't aim at all while Ben can get head shots with a pistol. REALLY REALISTIC! GOOD JOB MICHAEL BAY!! I think his directing license should be revoked and he should be sentenced for a couple years in jail
