Tora! Tora! Tora! Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Tora! Tora! Tora! the code that advised Japanese Imperial Navy commanders that the devastating December 7, 1941 attack on Hawaii commenced with utter surprise and without resistance. Torpedo bombers, dive bombers and fighter planes swept down upon Pearl Harbor and other military targets, killing over 2,400 and wounding over 1,200. More than a dozen ships were damaged or destroyed. Dozens of aircraft were lost. America, “the sleeping giant,” was abruptly awakened by WWII.

Tora! Tora! Tora! is Twentieth Century Fox’s meticulously researched and painstakingly authentic reenactment of “the date which will live in infamy” and the political and military intrigue that preceded it. This stunning and definitive war docudrama stars Jason Robards, Martin Balsam and E.G. Marshall.

Review: This is the blu-ray book and first high-definition release of the film classic Tora! Tora! Tora!  This film, for those that aren't familiar, this film is a representation of Japan's historical attack on Pearl Harbor during WWII.   The film looks great on blu-ray, although some of the scenes where aircraft are taking off include some grain, the movie overall looks fantastic.  This epic classic is a must-have in this ultimate collector's format.  We cannot recommend it enough. This one would make a great Xmas gift.
