Time Out saysA prototype disaster movie, reconstructing the attack on Pearl Harbor, which cost somewhere in the region of 25 million dollars, making it one of the most expensive American films to date. A distinguished cast gets a bit lost in the welter of special effects; and with the sequences giving the Japanese viewpoint directed by Japanese film-makers (Toshio Masuda and Kinji Fukasaku), there's something of a soft shoe shuffle to avoid treading on national sensibilities. But the climax, in particular, manages to be more than just a shoot-out, with Fleischer's intelligent direction generating a real feeling of chaos and apocalypse.
