2.0 out of 5 stars Factual to a Fault, July 15, 2002
This review is from: Tora! Tora! Tora! (DVD)
Ever wonder why hollywood directors take so many liberties when making a war movie? In my opinion, this film provides a more than adequate answer.
Granted, the attack scene is very well executed, with special effects that are impressive even today. But the rest of the film is dry and soulless. The characters spout dialogue that sounds like it was taken out of a college history textbook word for word.
If you want an impressive factual account of Dec. 7 and the preceeding events, then check out the two DVD History Channel documentary. If you want to see an entertaining Pearl Harbor film that is true to the essence of the 1940's, see Michail Bay's Pearl Harbor.
Of course, if you fall in between those two extremes, then Tora Tora Tora just might be the one for you.

The second you mentioned the movie "Pearl Harbor" as an alternative your credibility went striaght to ZERO. True to the essence, now that is funny.

I COMPLETELY AGREE with Strommy. "Pearl Harbor" is the worst movie of all time. Not even worthy of being a coffee table coaster...should be burned to show respect for the vets that lost their lives.
