James King (blond girl with a guys name!) was amazing in that movie! It would have been a good film if only she was in every scene and Ben watsizname wasnt in any scenes and it wasnt pretending to be about Pearl Harbour or anything remotley serious or important. In fact she could...
I'll just stop there for now I think.

Historically innacurate on most accounts its not all that bad as a war movie. But if you know the history or are familiar with the aviation aspect of it there are glarring innacuracies that you think they would have avoided by doing about 10 minutes of reading.

The channel war bits were actually the most accurate of the bunch although in 1941 there were no major cross channel raids as depicted. SO yeah...its fun and its dripping with historical atmosphere but its not accurate.

The crime of having Baldwin play Doolittle is one that shall never be forgiven despite the babeage factor in the movie.

I enjoyed it up to a certain point. When he starts flying the P-40 like a La-7 on steroids was what did it for me, having the two zeros ram into eachother like mindless idiots, and banking in between buildings like the Millenium Falcon topped it too.

I did like the B-25s, though.

Is that the film where Tom Cruise plays a English pilot who is sent to Pearl Harbour to win the 2nd World War for the British Empire and show the Yanks that we are the best?

YES...they did.

However, considering that they were being chased by A6M5's in their P-40E's you question everything anyways.

Seeing as the A6M5 didn't arrive till 1943 and the P-40E didn't arrive till after Dec 7, 1941...

It is a movie a afterall, not a documentary. It was made for entertainment purposes. As for the quote, it was never said that the P-40 could outmanuver the Zero, they simply said the P-40 wasn't fast enough to run from the Zero.

As in the flat wingtip version? Sorry... no excuse for that, since it's all CG! Hel - LOOO!!!

Too bad the movie sucked like a Hoover, otherwise it wouldn't be picked apart the way it is.

One of the worst movies I ever had the misfortune to pay money for.

The historical errors (and I'm not only refering to the wrong planetypes), the horrific performance of the actors, the whole "love"-story around it,...

Pack it together with U571, sink it in the ocean and hope nobody ever finds it again. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Hi Capt.LoneRanger,
I would add the second half of Private James Ryan too! Starting with the bail out, out of that landing boat and seeing that rifle sealed in plastic foil. As far as I know plastic foil showed up in the early 50ties or the scene where a P51 knocks out a Tiger tank is a laugh, especially where the Tiger had almost 10cm of armour!

This was the film in which the English are saved from endlessly saying "Bad show!" and "Cheerio!" instead of "having a go at the jolly hun" by the timely intervention of Affleck who shows the "daft" limes how to use the Spitfire while annihilating entirely JG2 and JG26. Having run out of targets in Europe, he transfers to Pearl Harbor (having been tipped off by FDR that he intends to let the Japanese cream Pearl) where he and his less adequate but game buddy destroy the entire Japanese aerial striking force before shifting their expertise to bombing and proceeding to lay waste to the Imperial homeland before running out of gas on their way to the Eastern Front where they doubtlessly would have demolished the Germans and sent them screaming back to Berlin.

I just love how Ben fights in the the BoB, gets a plane off the ground at Pearl Harbor, and participates in the Doolittle raid. That'd make quite a campaign assortment for a sim.
Aside from those two guys (Ken Taylor and ?), he's almost Francis Gabreski P-47 ace. He scrambled a P-40 shortly after the Japanese last raid and flew Spits in England (spoke Polish).

When Ben gets his P-40 up and sees Zeroes, I think he says, "Damn I hate vulching!"

Spoiler:
If you think of it, Ben carries his dead buddies' body (who knows how long) across China and back to the US.

BTW my cousin ran in the streets in "Captain Correlli's Mandolin" <sucked>
I only liked the 15 seconds when the Stukas arrive.

Pliofilm, developed in 1934 by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, was a rubber-based clear (and later dark green) plastic used to protect equipment, especially weapons, from water and sand during the D-Day landings.

The weapons were to be encased in the Pliofilm while the troops were aboard their transport ships, but this caused difficulties with those that had to board landing craft using rope ladders and required the use of their rifle's sling during this tricky procedure.

An alternative to the Pliofilm was the use of condoms which could be easily placed over the barrel of a weapon and then fired through when needed.
