Well i dont know why its so liked, i for once agree with the critics as this was just a boring terrrible movie, the attack on Pearl Harbour itself was atleast enjoying purely for the explosions, but its storyline seems very pointless and probably the most bizzare and unconvincing...

Just two words: Unconvincing acting

This is not a movie about Pearl Harbor. It's a movie about a sappy romance that happens to take place during the attack on Pearl Harbor. I don't even know where to begin. Some really boring love triangle takes place and it gets in the way of making what could've been a good film....

Michael Bay is gay. Direct quote:
-Ben Affleck: "You are so beautiful it hurts"
-Kate Beckinsale: "It's your nose that hurts"
-Ben Affleck: "I think it's my heart"
I don't even wanna get into the reasons why this movie sucks.

An okay film! The love story adds nothing whatsoever, but the battle sequences are stunning. It's disappointing because scenes like that deserve to be in a better film.

In almost every Michael Bay film I have seen, it seems as if the man wants to laugh, "And you thought I could actually make a good film!" I wouldn't say that PEARL HARBOR is terrible, but it's the worst I've seen of Mr. Bay. If ARMAGEDDON, a mediocre feature at best, was truly ...

Just fast forward to the Pearl Harbor scene, because the action is pretty good. The rest of the film is a throwaway soap opera with terribly cheesy dialogue.

I think I'm with everyone else in saying that this movie was a let down. It's too focused on love and not focused enough on the affect this event had on America. The attack on Pearl Harbor affected millions, so when making a film titled "Pearl Harbor"........show that! Don't focu...

Very below average film that just happens to have a good recreation of the Pearl Harbor attacks, over Americanised and way too 'top gun-ish' for the period. Affleck is a serious no no for casting and the love plot is just pointless filler before the raids. The effects are amazing...

Pearl Harbor is a terrible experience, it craps on one of the most tragic US moments, and Micheal Bay turns a historical event into a action film god I hate Micheal Bay. The plot is so terrible its hard to explain, I mean what does two best friends fighting over a girl have to d...
