Historical rape and buggery on a scale not seen since the Pilgrims bought Manhattan for 24 bucks.Jesus Christ where I do I start with this total piece of shit of a movie?
Here is a chart. Follow it.
THINGS THE MOVIE SHOWED -----------------------
American volunteering for Eagle Squadron in RAF
Spitfires and Hurricanes on the same airfield
Japanese straffing sailors in water
Japanese bombing Pearl Harbour hospital
Doolittle being "assigned" the mission
Japaneese tourist spies
Japanese spy dentist
Dory Miller actually shooting down a Japaneese plane
THINGS THAT REALLY HAPPENED ----------------------------- It was called B E A G L E squadron
Spitfires and Hirricanes NEVER EVER shared the same airfield!!!!! Different planes, different mission (one for bombers one for fighters interception)
FDR had POLIO...POLIO means you CANNOT WALK OR STAND
Japanese did not straff ANYONE at Pearl
The Naval Hospital was UNTOUCHED by order of Yamomotto himself
Doolittle helped plan the raid, he wasn't just "assigned"
There were no tourist spies
The dentist incident NEVER happened
Dory Miller, by his own admission, didnt even come CLOSE to hitting a plane.
Ok...enough of the historical problems. Bottom line: This movie is a total piece of garbage. Even the CGI effects are substandard. The acting, except for Jon Voight, is on the level of your average middle school play level. Affleck is a nightmare, Josh is a waste of human existence, and do NOT get me started on that floozie female lead who's performance was SO bad I forgot her name already.
I knew there was trouble when, and remember I live in the Czech Republic, the audience burst out LAUGHING at the serious love dialogue moments.
Jesus Christ it took 1 1/2 hours for the attack to start!?!?!? WTF!!!! Can you imagine what kind of remake of Tora Tora Tora they could have made for 200 million?
Considering Tora Tora Tora is the 2nd greatest war movie ever made, a remake with up to date effects would have swept the Oscars. But NOOOOOOOOOO Mr.Armageddon and Randall "I forgot the battle was supposed to be on the bridge" Wallace screw up ANOTHER important moment in world history.
You wanna kill 3 hours or so? Go donate blood to the Red Cross for the WTC attack.Pearl Harbour's entire crew and cast (except for Jon Voight) should have been tied to the Arizona three minutes before the bomb hit.
