Tora! Tora! Tora! is the Japanese signal to attack - and this movie meticulously recreates the attack on Pearl Harbor and the events leading up to it. Opening scenes contrast the American and Japanese positions. Japanese imperialists decide to stage the attack. Top U.S. brass ignore its possibility. Intercepted Japanese messages warn of it - but never reach F.D.R.'s desk. Radar warnings are disregarded. Even the entrapment of a Japanese submarine in Pearl Harbor before the attack goes unreported. Ultimately the Day of Infamy arrives - in the most spectacular, gut-wrenching cavalcade of action-packed footage ever. It's the most dazzling recreation of America's darkest day - and some of her finest hours.
Tora - The attack on Pearl Harbour
- Tora! Tora! Tora! review by OL
This is a must for history film fans. If you like marvel films go elsewhere.
Aerial scenes are good although realism is better in The Battle of Britain as authentic aircraft ME109s etc are used in the Battle of Britain. Slow to get into as it involves a lot of the planning and politics involved in Japans entry into WW2 as is not a straight action film. I do not mind this though others may.
