      The pain caused by the war of "Pearl Harbor" is really indelible

      I really like the movie "Pearl Harbor" adapted from a true story. When you watch this movie carefully, you will find that the rhythm of the movie is slowly accelerating. Growing up, Rafe met Evelyn, a nurse in the army, and quickly fell in love, and decided to have a boyfriend and girlfriend relationship with Rafe. But soon after learning that Leif's plane was...

      Small Realities in the Big: Seeing a Small Corner of Life

      When I searched for the film on Google, I found that local audiences did not have a good opinion of the film.

      received generally negative reviews from critics, who criticized the story, long runtime, screenplay and dialogue, pacing, performances and historical inaccuracies.

      But this film holds an irreplaceable place in my heart.

      The whole show is filled with a grand ambition, so it has a strong...

      Americans think it is impossible for the Japanese to attack, the pilot thinks it is impossible to take off at a short distance, and the male protagonist thinks that his friends cannot betray him. Many impossible things happened in the play, but the moment Roosevelt stood up, he told us that there was nothing It is impossible, even if it is impossible, to create possible beliefs, beliefs are more important than anything else, and at that moment, what Americans need most is beliefs.

      a little afterthought

      Many people feel that the love in the play is the film's failure

      Although I think the transition of the heroine's emotions is a bit inappropriate (too fast?)

      But I also feel that this is really in line with the background of life in the war era.

      Some people have stagnated, but their life is still going on. Of course, they have to move on. There are many kinds of people's emotions. Sometimes there is really no need to make a clear statement. The end of love...

      famous scene

      Roosevelt: My heart is very heavy. Churchill and Stalin asked me just now, and I will ask you too. How long does the US have to pretend the world war didn't happen? Colonel James: I'm not born to be a prisoner, so I would parachute the crew first, and then choose an important military target to fly and die with the enemy. Rafe: Nurse, I'm not here to teach languages. I'm here to be a pilot. Ghosts go to war with textbooks. Quick response, and whether it can be integrated with the aircraft. I...

    Explosion scene

    In order to create the most spectacular and thrilling airstrike scene, special effects coordinator John Fraser decided to detonate 6 warships with 700 stick explosives, 2,000-foot detonating cord and 4,000 gallons of gasoline. For safety reasons, Fraser prepared thousands of fire hoses and fire extinguishers at the shooting site to prevent the fire from getting out of control.

    The film was so boring that even Warner Television Network refused to show it because of its indifferent taste. ("Los Angeles Daily" review )
    After 40 minutes of exciting explosion scenes, there are hours of predictable and banal romantic drama. (" New York Post " review )
    "Pearl Harbor" has no depth like a comic, and the loose story turns World War II into a symphony of stupidity. (" Wall Street Journal " review...)
