Rafe (Ben Affleck) and Danny (Josh Hartnett) are a pair of good brothers who have played together since childhood. Both of them are very interested in flying. They once learned to fly airplanes together. In the early days, the two joined the U.S. Air Force together. During the training, Rafe fell in love with Evelyn (Kate Beckinsale), a female nurse in the military hospital.
In order to help European countries resist the aggression of Nazi Germany, the U.S. military decided to send elite troops to the European continent. Lefe volunteered to join the war and entrusted Evelyn to Danny’s care. Soon, the bad news came that Lefe’s plane died in an air battle. Being shot down by the Germans, the possibility of survival is almost zero. In the pain of mutual encouragement, Evelyn and Danny developed love. What they didn’t expect was that Leif didn’t die, and when the three reunited, they were embarrassed. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor helped them out, and Rafe and Danny decided not to be rivals in love but to be comrades in arms.
Pearl Harbor is a 2001 American war film directed by Michael Bay, starring Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, and Kate Beckinsale. The film tells the story of the attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese on December 7, 1941, and the aftermath of the attack, including the Doolittle Raid.
The film received mixed reviews from critics, with criticism focusing on its historical inaccuracies and clichéd dialogue, but also received praise for its impressive action sequences and visual effects. It was a commercial success, grossing over $449 million worldwide against a budget of $140 million.
Despite its commercial success, Pearl Harbor is often regarded as a flawed and overly sentimental film, which took liberties with historical events and characters. However, it remains a popular film among some audiences for its portrayal of the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women involved in the attack and its aftermath.
