Rating: 4/5 -- Displaying an uncharacteristic even-handedness for Hollywood, this Japanese-American production is certainly the epic equal of Pearl Harbor, while consistently maintaining an almost unimpeachable honesty with its dual perspectives. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- It's rare for a feature film to attain the trifecta of entertaining, informing, and educating. Full Review

Expensive but ultimately rather empty. Full Review

[The] film now seems strikingly modern and mature.
New York Times
May 23, 2006
Both overall director Richard Fleischer and his Japanese counterparts do a dull job, and the monotonously low-key tone of scene after scene almost suggests that each was filmed without a sense of ultimate slotting in the finished form. Full Review
Variety
Jul 8, 2008
Rating: 3/4 -- Prior to "Tora!" movies showing the attack were jingoistic propaganda; afterwards, the attack was an excuse to indulge in Hollywood's fascination with American self-loathing. Full Review
Honolulu Star-Advertiser
Dec 20, 2012
Rating: 1/4 -- Tora! Tora! Tora! is one of the deadest, dullest blockbusters ever made. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Experience all the sound and fury of the Japanese air attack on Pearl Harbor in the awe-inspiring two-disc collector's set of Tora! Tora! Tora!. Now presented with its best-ever audio and including a riveting commentary and an all-new documentary, this 1970 Oscar winner (Special Visual Effects) documents the epic chapter in world history with a ferocity unparalleled in any other film of its time! Authentic reenactments of key events in Washington, Honolulu and Tokyo highlight this stirring account of the deceptions, the gambles, and the all-too-human lapses that led to the "Day of Infamy." From the attack's early planning to the cry of exultant Japanese airmen as they leave Pearl Harbor ablaze, this thrilling depiction is both an accurate, honest account of war and breathtaking filmmaking!

Product Description:

A Japanese-American co-production, director Richard Fleischer (SOYLENT GREEN) and two Japanese directors put together this ultrarealistic account of the bombing of Pearl Harbor as presented from the perspectives of both nations, as diplomatic tensions rise between the two countries. While the Japanese military plans its attack on American military installations, the American forces nearly stumble into a much greater calamity due to a series of errors and mistakes. As the two sides plunge closer to war, the tension escalates until the final, spectacular air raid, the most realistic ever filmed. This ITA award winner has a fabulous cast, including Martin Balsam, Joseph Cotten, Jason Robards, James Whitmore, and E.G. Marshall.
