Reviews
Mine: Kind of long, but well done. The build up to Pearl Harbor is quite interesting. Loved it when I was a kid. Less impressed now.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Events leading up to (well-staged) Pearl Harbor attack, from both American and Japanese points of view. Well-documented screenplay shows major and minor blundering on both sides, then recreates attack with frightening realism. Well-made film creates incredible tension. Oscar-winning special effects. Panavision.

Well thought out historically. Lacking in cinema effect for todays audience but for 1970; a feat in and of itself. A real perspective in to the thought process of both sides up to and after the attack. A must see for history buffs. And by the way... I happened to notice a fellow on the deck of the Arizona who shouts "abandon ship!" - is that not Herbert Dailey who also had several bit parts in this movie and was also an extra in "The boy with the Green Hair? Anyone happen to know? If so, please email me.
