EMPIRE OF THE SUN WILL ASTOUND YOU
31 July 2001 | by (San Buenaventura, CA USA) – See all my reviews

EMPIRE OF THE SUN WILL ASTOUND YOU. This is Spielberg's story telling and directing at his very best. Simply Excellent! The true story of a young, bright teen-ager of British parents, who are part of the British Business/Embassy team, gives you the many experiences of what was happening in China in those years before December 7th, 1941, our Pearl Harbor. A great cast; supberb special effects. The laser disk and the DVD have some excellent 'features' on how the 153 minutes of this story telling were accomplished. Highly recommended.
