Watch Tora! Tora! Tora!
- 2 hr 24 min
Tora! Tora! Tora! is a war movie about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The stars, Martin Balsam, Joseph Cotten, S? Yamamura, E. G. Marshall, Jason Robards and James Whitmore give superlative and believable performances. The movie covers the events leading to the attack on Pearl Harbor, as well as the attack itself. This was one of the pivotal events in U.S. history, the reason we went to war against Japan. The special effects are extremely well-done and do not seem dated. It feels like you're there, in the middle of the explosions, crashing planes and sinking ships. The true fascination of this movie is in learning how the Japanese High Command carefully and methodically planned the attack. This is contrasted with the mistakes made by the Americans in the weeks preceding this catastrophe. We are behind the scenes, watching events from both the Japanese and American viewpoints.
