The lifelong friendship between Rafe McCawley and Danny Walker is put to the ultimate test when the two ace fighter pilots become entangled in a love triangle with beautiful Naval nurse Evelyn Johnson. But the rivalry between the friends-turned-foes is immediately put on hold when they find themselves at the center of Japan's devastating attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.
Pearl Harbor rules!
Pearl Harbor is one of my favorite stories from the history. I just like to read about it. I was so excited when I heard that Jerry Bruckheimer is going to produce a movie about it. I have seen it couple of times and it really is a masterpiece.
The movie is long. It's about three hours long but it didn't bother me. There is a love story in it which makes it a bit more drama, so it's not only a war film. Great actors like Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, Alec Baldwin and Cuba Gooding Jr. make fantastic job in their roles. I am also a big Kate Beckinsale fan, so having her in the movie was the final piece that made it perfect.
This movie is definitely worth watching if you have lots of free time. I don't care what others say, I think it is the second best war movie after Saving Private Ryan.
