These two best friends Rafe (Ben Affleck) and Danny (Josh Hartnett), they love to fly and especially they want to become a jet fighter later. As the war eventually occurs in Europe and Asia that time, it’s becoming a big opportunity for their dream and they sign up for the air force. However the only thing that stopping them from loving their dreams are the ladies that they love at army’s nursing staff.

Therefore Rafe falling with one of the nurses, Evelyn (kate Beckinsale). During the war, Rafe got a mission and have to go to war and the two of them realize that they might not ever meet again. After awhile when Evelyn has been transferred into Pearl Harbor, she received a news from Rafe’s best friend, Danny, that Rafe was shot down and presumed killed on the spot.

On Sunday morning, where all the troops are unprepared and a lot of them were hang over during the Saturday night. A sudden and suicidal air attack from Japanese jet fighter was a shock. And the Japanese smartly hit and bombs their naval and air port, which totally paralyze the Pearl Harbor. A massive air attack brilliantly plotted and planned by the Japanese.

After several months, the American prepares to counter attack, which leading the way by Danny. During the journey of counter attacking to Japan, they have to go through Vietnam and a lot of them shots down. However some of them reach Japan main island and throw bombs into Nagasaki and Hiroshima. However the bombing mission could also say as suicidal attack as they don’t have enough fuel to fly back to American area.

I feel this movie was a really good historical movie, where we get to know why the American bomb a massive impact into Hiroshima and Nagasaki that time. It has a lot of modification based on the history. But that’s the one making the movie entertaining. Overall I rate this movie as 7.5 out of 10 for their educating and yet entertaining.
