TORA! TORA! TORA! (1970) [JAPANESE]



Directors: Richard Fleischer, Kinji Fukasaku 

Starring: Martin Balsam, Sô Yamamura and Jason Robards 

Plot Summary: A dramatization of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the series of American blunders that allowed it to happen. 

The film looks gorgeous in HD, and remains the best Hollywood treatment of Pearl Harbor. ...one of the last of its breed, an old-fashioned Hollywood epic produced at a time when that style of filmmaking had pretty much worn out its welcome with cinema audiences. Historical accuracy stands as the biggest strength.
