Pearl Harbor is a blockheaded, hollow-hearted industrial enterprise.

The effect of watching a Michael Bay film is indistinguishable from having a large, pointy lump of rock drop on your head. His new picture, Pearl Harbor, maintains the mood.

Bloated and boring, Pearl Harbor is a collection of war-movie clichés.
