Pearl Harbor is a Michael Bay film which is set in World War II, the main actors are Ben Affleck (Rafe McCawley), Josh Hartnett ( Danny Walker), Kate Beckinsale (Evelyn Johnson), Alec Baldwin ( Jimmy Doolittle), Tom Sizemore (Earl Sistern).It is a dramatic revision of the events in the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.The final part of the movie relates the Doolittle Raid, the first U.S. attack on Japanese islands in the Second World War.

The movie begins in Nowheresville where two young friends dreamed of becoming fighter pilots. When war eventually breaks out in Europe and Asia the two friends realise their dream and sign up for the air force.Rafe soon falls in love with a nurse who passed the medical examination of income, but decides to go to Europe to fight in the war with the American squad. While Rafe fight in Europe his friend Daniel is sent to Pearl Harbor Islands where he falls for his friend's girlfriend.Evelyn and Daniel fall in love thinking that Rafe had died in Europe, when Rafe returns from Europe start a confrontation with the naval forces of Japan which objective was destroy the American Pacific fleet after the Japanese attack Rafe and Daniel along with other soldiers carried out a bombing in Tokyo.

The music of the film is by Hans Zimmer, the background music is very well set according to the time and situation of the story. The film has different styles of music, has romantic music for the scenes between the actors.

The movie has a lot of special effects, being one of the first films made about World War II.The use of special effects gives the story more real and makes it more appealing. No special effects were used only if they used this in addition to a large number of double, and the use of similar models of aircraft and ships used at that time.

I recommend this movie for fans of modern war films because the effects are very good and because the actors play their role well.
