"Journey To The Screen" -- The Making Of PEARL HARBOR

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

History comes alive in the unforgettable epic motion picture PEARL HARBOR, the spectacular blockbuster brought to the screen by Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay. Experience the groundbreaking special effects that place you at the center of one of the watershed events of the twentieth century, presented for the first time through the magic of Blu-ray Disc technology! Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett and Kate Beckinsale star in this real-life tale of catastrophic defeat, heroic victory, personal courage and sacrifice. See the battle as never before in 1080p high definition, while the astonishing 5.1 48 kHz, 24-bit uncompressed audio will make you feel as though you're in the cockpit of your own fighter plane. The unparalleled realism of Blu-ray Disc technology delivers a breathtaking reenactment of the "date which will live in infamy."

To call Pearl Harbor a throwback to old-time war movies is something of an understatement. Director Michael Bay's epic take on the bombing that brought the United States into World War II hijacks every war movie situation and cliché (some affectionate, some stale) you've ever seen and gives them a shiny, glossy spin until the whole movie practically gleams. Planes glisten, water sparkles, trees beckon--and Bay's re-creation of the bombing itself, a 30-minute sequence that's tightly choreographed and amazingly photographed, sets the action movie bar up quite a few notches. And in updating the classic war film, Bay and screenwriter Randall Wallace (Braveheart) use that old plot standby, the love triangle--this time, it's between two pilots (Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett) and a nurse (Kate Beckinsale) who find themselves stationed at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, during what they thought would be a nice, sunny tour of duty. Then, of course, history intervened.
br/> For the first 90 minutes of the movie, Affleck and Beckinsale find a nice, appealing chemistry that plays on his strengths as a movie star and hers as a serious actress--he gives her glamour, she gives him smarts. Their truncated romance--the beginning of which is told in flashback so we can get right to the point where he has to leave her to go to England--works, thanks to their charm. They're no Kate and Leo from Titanic (a strategy the film strives hard toward), but they're pretty darn adorable in their own right. Hartnett, as the not entirely unwelcome third wheel, squints bravely but makes only a slight dent in the film. Everyone else in Pearl Harbor--from Cuba Gooding Jr.'s brave navy seaman to Jon Voight's able impersonation of FDR--is pretty much a glorified walk-on, taking a backseat to the pyrotechnics and action sequences that keep the three-hour film in fairly constant motion. But when that action does take hold, Pearl Harbor is quite a thrilling ride. --Mark Englehart

Not in "pearl harbor".
Rolltide
It also reflects the typical American opinion that the attack on Pearl Harbor was the most monumental event in the Second World war.
Mike Peters
This is a very realistic movie with great special effects also.

This movie was definitely one to show off the Blu-Ray format, but some corporate genius decided not to pay MS royalties for the use of VC-1, and they went with MPEG2 again on PH. Unless you have the sharpness dialed down on your set, or a 720p display blocking can be seen on this title pretty easily. If you're not sensitive to it then you're lucky. It comes through looking almost like a second layer of grain, but not the very fine grain of good film we're used to. I know some films are intentionally grainy, but rather than error diffusion (like real grain) this movie exhibits patterned grain. It is an artifact of MPEG2 block in motion.

Titles released on Blu-Ray in VC1 encoding have proven how much better they can look. Why won't they maximize the potential of the format already?

This movie is very enjoyable in plot and special effects. But, unfortunately the video transfer was poorly done in Blu-ray. If you already have standard DVD version, save your money.

The Vista Series has released the biggest and greatest DVD package ever assembled with "Pearl Harbor- The Director's Cut." The new 184 Minute cut is edited better. The attack sequence is more realistic and graphic, the reason for this cut's R-rating. And the four-disc set features hours of behind-the-scenes footage, two documentaries on the real attack and the Doolittle Raid, and commentary tracks from Michael Bay and Janine Basinger; Jerry Brucheimer, Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett and Alec Baldwin; The Director of Photography, Costume Designer, Visual Effects Supervisor and Composer. A great addition to the DVD collection. And if you think this is good, then get ready for the November release of "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring- The Director's Edition" four-disc set! Movie Grade: A+; DVD Grade: A+

For aviation and warbird afficianados, the much-anticipated flying scenes are sorely disappointing. The Battle of Britain is inaccurately depicted. Sorry to say (particularly for the Brits), late model Mark V and IX Spitfires (cannon-armed & 4 blade props!) weren't available for the Battle. It's understandable that a low-budget film would have to show late models for "real" ground & taxiing shots, but the computer-generated aerial battles could have at least been rendered with correct models. Here's another...Ben Affleck is shot down & ditches in the Channel where moments before he was in sight of Beachy Head. Goes MIA for weeks? Rescued by a French boat? How long did you tread water Ben? Maybe the Brits didn't want to rescue this one! Here's my vote for editing award of the movie. Look carefully and you'll see the yellow-nosed Bf109 which waxed Ben's fanny viewed from the rear in a hanger at Pearl Harbor! Reverse lend lease? Do you really think Doolittle would draft 2 single-engine flyboys for the Tokyo raid? Bit of an insult to the B25 crews there. Bottom line if you want the aerial view of the Battle of Britain, rent the movie by same name. For Pearl, go with Tora Tora Tora & Finally 30 Seconds Over Tokyo is still the definitive movie on the Doolittle Raid.

This movie should only be viewed on blu ray, full 1080P with a surround sound system. You can really feel the impacts of the bombing and gunfire on surround sound. This movie was awesome. It speaks of how the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and would bait the U.S. into WWII. But before that, a group of pilots would return the favor with their own bombing attacks on the Japanese. Seeing all those U.S. sailors running for their lives when they were being attacked is truly scary. Much respect to the men and women of the armed forces.

Dear God! but I'm glad I'd not seen this abomination earlier and wish I'd never seen it at all. The title is "Pearl Harbor"--which was a NAVY tragedy--but the plot focuses on the trifling issues of the (then) Army Air Force. Had they titled it "Dolittle's Raid", it might more accurately reflect the wretched production. My father, who was on the West Virginia that day (and was represented without name in the movie) must be spinning in his grave. History it is not, nor anything like unto. Entertaining--possibly to those of low or no standards of historical accuracy--but to pretend it reflects anything whatever about the tragedy at Pearl Harbor is a farce worthy only of Hollywood in its cups. Had I the money I would buy up every copy, including originals, and destroy them as a tribute to my father and his NAVY friends who died that day and were passed over by this movie that Sucketh Mightily.

I'd give it less if I could.
I can't believe I wasted 3 hours of my life on this. thankfully, I paid nothing to see this film. I kept waiting for it to get going. then, everything happens in one predictable flury of events and then it ends.

The following should be read in the cynical tone intended:

This is Hollywood predictability at it's Best. Lets start with The 2 main characters flying playing "chicken" getting confused and at the last minute pulling it through for an oh so thrilling near hit. THIS won't show up later in the film, no!
ok, then Ben Affleck Dies (hurray!) but, wait. he can't die he's the star and he's only been in the movie for about 20 minutes. Then His best friend, Josh Hartnett hits on his girl! Didn't see that coming either. Wow, and the sex scence in the dimly lit parachutes. how freakin' original. Then Ben comes back and shrugs his pal. how could he after all they've been through together?
(I'm using their real names not the charcters names for it doesn't really matter what they're called in the movie. You can never get past that you are watching Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett, for neither could act enough to make you believe they are someone else)
Then the 2 make up the night before the day on infamy. good thing too cause they are the ONLY TWO PIOLTS LEFT WHO CAN FLY AND SCARE AWAY THE ENTIRE JAPANESE FLEET!!!!!
After watching the movie I came to a conclusion that it must be in Ben Affleck's Contract that he can not die. He lived through Armagedon(I almost didn't) and here He crashes twice, is shot at numerous times and still out lives his best freind, Josh, who takes a bullet for him goes home and raises Josh's Son and marries the girl. Josh Hartnett needs a better manager to say he gets to live and gets the girl.
