So I finally rented Pearl Harbor. How many others thought this movie was awful?

They could have EASILY cut the first HOUR AND A HALF out of that movie....and then when i thought it was over

INTERMISSION!!!!!!! followed by almost an HOUR more!

ahhhhh!!!!!

It's terrible...they put so much work into the 45 "cool" minutes of the movie, and then completely wrecked the rest of it....

I'm pretty disappointed :(

Hollywood will NEVER realize that what actually happened is more interesting than their 'visions'.

I didn't think the movie was too impressive. The first half was people having sex like rabbits, the second half was a bunch of big explosions. And I thought The One was stupid... :D

though i agree they did a bad job in actually recreating the events, but i liked it. Not like "it's great", but it had my attention, and i enjoyed it for a movie. hmm...

peace

after the actual pearl harbor scene, the movie just dragged on and on and on. i wanted it to end. at least for 3 hour movies like gladiator, patriot, braveheart, and even titanic, it wasnt a drag and i enjoyed all 3 hours of each one of those movies.

in sum, pearl harbor the movie was the japanese bombing of an american love triangle. the end.

The war scenes were cool, but as a movie it sucked. Alot, and I do mean alot. I was pissed off for wasting three hours of my life to witness such garbage.

I think the attack scene was nicely done. Overall, it couldve been a better story if it were not Armageddon style. They should've concentrated on the historical part more than on the love story, which was CRAP.

I just don't understand...I mean, I consider myself a pretty normal movie guy...i'm not hyper-critical or anything...

it's just HOW DO THEY LET A MOVIE LIKE THAT BE MADE?

I mean, they obviously started from day 1 saying "the battle sequence is what we got here" (and don't get me wrong, that was quite awesome)

but after that, I mean, did they run out of money and think no one would notice if they put a pretty darn weak plot behind that main plot?

do you think they all sat there at the final wrap, watched the entire edited film, and went "great job fellas"...i mean, come on (this goes for a LOT of other big bang action movies too).

just seems to me that if i had that many millions of dollars to blow, i could sure as heck think up something a little better than a love triangle...

oh well.

Jerry Bruckenheimer keeps trying to go for that "titanic" type money by making his movies ghey as hell and putting way too much into the love story. Look at Armageddon, and then this piece of crap. Though i liked Armageddon.

Some special (d)effects were cool, but overall kinda boring. I didn't like the taste of propaganda either...

I found the movie to be ridiculously contrived and very manipulative. Ugh, I could just feel the music trying to twist my emotions. *shudder* Bay and Brukheimer should not be allowed to make movies. :frown: But they will because they are appealing to a lot of people.

I thought it was pretty good. What I think is a bad movie is Scary movie.

I thought the movie sucked. However thanks to a sad woman I scored...

Afterwords I still thought the movie sucked as bad as the woman.

Well I didnt think it was horrible.... actually the actual bombing was awesome. I still havent seen anything even come close in terms of effects.
