Plot outline: Set during the time of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, two friends (Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett) are caught up in the events that draw the United States into World War II. One of them enlists with the U.S. Army Air Corps and the other flies for the British Royal Air Force, but they both find themselves in love with the same woman (Kate Beckinsale). Summary written by Anonymous The classic story of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is told through the eyes of two boyhood friends, now serving as officers in the Army Air Corps. Rafe is an energetic young pilot who is selected to fly with the British in Europe while America is still not at war. After Rafe is shot down and presumed killed, however, Danny comforts Rafe's former lover, Evelyn, and the two draw closer. But, when Rafe turns up alive, the two former friends become enemies, and it is through the turmoil of Pearl Harbor that the two may reconcile their differences. Summary written by Anthony Hughes {husnock31@hotmail.com} Two childhood best friends, Rafe (Ben Affleck) and Danny (Josh Hartnett), grow up wanting to fly planes. When Rafe gets the chance to join the Royal Air Force during World War II, he takes it - leaving his new love, Evelyn (Kate Beckinsale), a dedicated Navy nurse, and Danny, also a pilot, behind. Danny and Evelyn are transferred separately to the idyllic paradise of Hawaii, where they eventually meet through a connection to Rafe, who has been declared missing. But just as the love triangle begins to get complicated, Dec. 7, 1941 arrives, changing all of their lives forever. Summary written by Sujit R. Varma {sujit_varma@hotmail.com}
Comment: Pearl Harbor must be some of the epic movies that has hit the big screen in the last five years. Beautifully portrayed characters with realistic emotions of war time. When I first saw it, it was breathtaking. I had friends that said part of it was predictable where one of the main characters "dies" in Europe. What I see on that part of the movie was a common scenario during the war when you thought someone was dead but they actually weren't. It was used well and people that didn't like that concept need to realise that that was a reality of war. Anyway, the computer graphics effects are incredible. One of the most amazing parts of the movie is the Japanese pilot (which the movie orientates a bit around) is aiming his bomb site over the USS Arizona. He hits the switch and we watch in awe as the bomb falls out of the plane and the camera follows it all the way down towards the ship. It was deffinitely the most stunning 3D effects I have seen in a movie. In the huge 3 hours of playtime, Pearl Harbor manages to take the viewer back into 1941 and the storyline is very real and gripping. Michael Bay (Director) has shown true directing skills all round in all aspects of this film. This film had little bits that were a tad boring, but most films have a bit of that. Rafe McCaulley (Affleck) is a master fighter pilot with his best friend Danny Walker (Hartnett) who is also. Certain situations cause them both to fall in love with a courageous army nurse Evelyn Johnson (Beckinsale). Other characters that I personally thought where played well was Jimmy Dolittle (Alec Baldwin), President Roosevelt (Jon Voight) and Earl (Tom Sizemore). I give Pearl Harbor 10/10 for its action packed, drama filled, epic movie of this year, maybe even decade!!
