An insult to those who were there
Steven Heiting | Packerland, Wisconsin, USA | 05/03/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)
"Fantasy is one thing but when an event of major historical significance is trivialized to fiction, I think it's a disgrace. A 60th anniversary commemorative edition? This movie is an insult to those who were actually there and the entire generation who lived through or died in WWII.
It is nothing more than the producers' attempt to benefit from the anniversary of others' misfortune.
Sure Ben Affleck is in the Eagle Squadron in England and is shot down over the English Channel and NOBODY knows he survived until he miraculously turns up in Pearl Harbor. Did he swim all the way?
Then he and Josh Hartnett are the ONLY ones to get their planes in the air during the Japanese attack. Then we see them trying to save sailors trapped in the Arizona because, apparently, nobody else could do it.
Then Affleck and Hartnett become pilots for the Doolittle Raid, in spite of the differences between flying a fighter and a bomber, not to mention flying bombers off an aircraft carrier deck.
And when Hartnett dies in the Doolittle Raid, they drag his rotting carcass all the way across China with Japanese soldiers on their ass so there can be a hero's return in a coffin at Pearl Harbor? Puh-lease!
Interwoven is a lame love story that has a syrupy ending.
Hollywood has taken fictionalized characters and made them larger than the event on which the movie is based. Therefore, this movie flat-out sucks."
