I watched Pearl Harbor once and forgot most of it. It was really boring, then some action, then boring. Now it’s boring, action, boring - at least it’s an improvement. Editing was solid. My dad would probably enjoy this one.
Cracking good film!
I delayed viewing this because I hated the original.
Never fear, this edit cranks.
As noted, the love story is completely excised, and the focus is on action.
Visual editing was terrific, and was complemented by a thundering audio mix.
Narrative was on the shallow end, but that was to be expected when there were so many top name actors involved. The nurses storyline suffered most, they ended up being little more than eye candy with a handful of lines. Not a complaint, just an observation.
This is an older edit, but one of the better ones. Top job by ADM.
I actually watched this quite some time ago but only now remembered to rate it. This what a truly great fan edit can be. People always talk about how editing certain films is merely an exercise in “turd polishing.” Herein, ADM took a turd and turned it into a gem. The ridiculous love story is seamlessly excised, along with several ridiculous pieces of dialogue. My only minor gripe is that ADM left the cheesy opening with the bad kid actors.
The movie is now about war, victory and loss. It seems almost paradoxical, but by taking out the love story, ADM has made the film MORE emotional.
Editing is an unequivocal 10 for all technical aspects.
Plot and entertainment get a couple 9′s because I do think ADM could have taken more liberties in a few spots. Still effing awesome. WATCH THIS EDIT!!!
