Rating: 1/4 -- Tora! Tora! Tora! is one of the deadest, dullest blockbusters ever made. Full Review
Chicago Sun-Times

Rating: 2/5 -- As history, it seems a fairly accurate account of what happened, although it never much bothers its head about why. As film art, it is nothing less than a $25-million irrelevancy.
New York Times

Even the air-raid, one of those all- out bits of Hollywood destruction staging which offer plenty of time for sour speculation on the sheer cost of so much bang-bang cinema, should leave human casualties taking second place to the material smash-up. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- [T]he work of seasoned pulp directors Richard Fleischer and future BATTLES WITHOUT HONOR AND HUMANITY man Kinji Fukasaku keeps things taut.

...The film glories in its Panavision sweep, from its full-length shots of battleships at sea to its artfully composed formations of Japanese fighter planes...

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: 2/4 -- Directors Richard Fleischer, Kinji Fukasaku, and Toshio Masuda have infused Tora! Tora! Tora! with an excessively dry and deliberate pace that results in an almost interminable first hour... Full Review

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.
