Synopsis A Japanese-American co-production, director Richard Fleischer (SOYLENT GREEN) and two Japanese directors put together this ultrarealistic account of the bombing of Pearl Harbor as presented from the perspectives of both nations, as diplomatic tensions rise between the two countries. While the Japanese military plans its attack on American military installations, the American forces nearly stumble into a much greater calamity due to a series of errors and mistakes. As the two sides plunge closer to war, the tension escalates until the final, spectacular air raid, the most realistic ever filmed. This ITA award winner has a fabulous cast, including Martin Balsam, Joseph Cotten, Jason Robards, James Whitmore, and E.G. Marshall....The film glories in its Panavision sweep, from its full-length shots of battleships at sea to its artfully composed formations of Japanese fighter planes...[The] film now seems strikingly modern and mature.3 stars out of 5 -- [A] scrupulously authentic recreation of the build-up to Pearl Harbor...3 stars out of 5 -- [T]he work of seasoned pulp directors Richard Fleischer and future BATTLES WITHOUT HONOR AND HUMANITY man Kinji Fukasaku keeps things taut.
