The nurse, Evelyn is engaged to one of the pilots, Rafe. He is reported ‘missing in action’ while fighting with the British in Europe. Generally this means ‘dead’. His friend, Danny, comforts Evelyn. They soon become lovers. Things get complicated when Rafe walks back into their lives. As they try to sort out the problem the three of them are suddenly thrust into World War 2 when Pearl Harbour is attacked on December 7, 1941.
Pearl Harbour is the backdrop for this human drama and romance. The staging and special effects are gripping. The performances are good, but the story lacks lustre and the film is overly long.
Rating: 6.5 out of 10
