  1. I have purchased several Blu Ray titles from Amazon and had no difficulty playing them on my Samsung player. I tried playing this one but the player rejected it each time and reported “unable to play this disc.” After some investigation, I determined that Blu Ray discs are region encoded, such that a player purchased in North America is only capable of playing discs intended for North America (region A.) Unfortunately, the disc that I got from Amazon is not appropriate for playback on a unit purchased in North America. Look into this before you buy.

  2. What were they thinking? Pearl Harbor is nothing more than an attempt to remake Titanic with Japanese Zeroes instead of an iceberg. While not quite “Postman” bad, Pearl Harbor’s awful acting, terrible dialog, and overall uninspired dross toward a delicate historical event marks this film as one for the bargain bin next to “Showgirls.”

  3. This ranks among the 5 worst movies I’ve ever seen. Visually appealing, yes. But the story, the acting, the flow of the movie – just terrible. It was so bad, my wife and I actually contemplated not watching the 2nd disc – even though that’s the half that has the attack, which I knew would be cool to watch; and yet – I had no desire to waste more time watching this film. The joke now is that if someone tells us they liked this movie, we know that we cannot rely on any opinion they might give on another movie.

    Yes, it’s that bad.

  4. Pearl Harbor, in my opinion, is one of the best movies I have seen. I have read may of the reviews by other members, and the derogatory comments they have made about the film, and yes, from their point of view, they are correct. What you have to understand before you can really appreciate a film like this is that although part of the plot is fiction, the rest is not. This means that the creators have to make the film fit into the framework of established historical fact. Not only the historic lines, but also the culture, the attitude of people in general, and the overall norms of that time. With this premise out of the way, I found the film to be very entertaining, romantic, and extremely authentic as far as props, attitudes, and historic content. It was a well spent three hours that I would do again. For me, it really answered many questions I had about the WWII era that in my personal research, I could not answer. In addition, being a hopeless romantic, I really loved the story, which was authentic for that time, as to how people acted.

  5. If you want action this movie has some serious action. Will you have to fast forward a bunch to get to it? Yes. Is it worth it? Yes, great action.

    If you want a great and unique love story this movie has it. Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett play best buddy airmen who vie for the same women’s (Kate Beckinsale) affection. Without giving too much away through a strange twist of fate they both end up with the girl at different times and it seems like everything is falling apart when the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor. From then on out the movie takes a quick detour from Romance to Action and does so abruptly and amazingly. This movie makes you feel like you are there at one of the most horrific days of American history. The buddies of course must work together to save their friends and in doing so reach an understanding with one another before they both have to leave the girl they love to attack Japan with none other than General James Doolittle.

    In the end this becomes a very touching thought out story that I enjoyed tremendously. There are a few side stories that seem forced, but overall the cast is fun and the story is excellent. The Blu-ray is excellent for both sound and picture.
