|Pearl Harbor Fan Review - By Matt
I'd give this film a B. The
only complaints I have are that the beginning/romance act is too long, and
I don't like some of the comedy with the other fighter pilots. This movie
sort of reminds me of a longer and better Memphis Belle. As for the
acting, the three main characters were pretty decent in my opinion. I
don't know what these critics are thinking saying they have no chemistry.
The romance is too long and is sort of lame at times, but not even close
to as bad as what the critics have been saying. Another thing that bothers
me is the comments about Alec Baldwin. He really didn't do bad... I think
his whole career is just now cursed because of his horrible voice. It
makes him look bad. Also, those hospital scenes should have never been
blurred out. So those are the only negatives of the movie. The pluses
would be decent acting (not as bad as the critics say, again), the
politics (John Voight was great, Shang Tsung and the other Japanese actors
were great), the lighting of the movie was great (the colors
were beautiful in my opinion), and of course the action scenes are the
best part of the movie.
There you have my review. It's not the best
movie, but it sure as hell is not as bad as the critics are making it to
be. It's a very good movie.
