In my opinion The Pacific is by the far best production ever depicting the pacific theater during WW2. Everything about the miniseries is superb. Itâ??s in all encompassing in that fact it doesnâ??t just show you what went on during the battles. It protrays the reaction of allied forgein countries to the American troops on leave (Austrailia). The mental issues created by devastating warfare and the long periods of boredom juxtaposed with instant terror. I personally think The Pacific is just as good as Band of Brothers (itâ??s companion piece in some ways and surpasses it in others.
This mini-series was amazing! I love it an it is a little getter than

This is a great series!
Great acting great story line and very powerful depiction of the war. Like band of brothers one of best mini series ever made.
This is pretty good series that follows the stories of many marines of all ages and ranks. This was captivating because it shows the ills of war and what they can do to a solder. You get to watch the nightmare of WWII unravel over the pacific where it was the United States in foreign land. I would watch this again because this is also an awesome time piece.
An often brilliant and often gruesome look at WWII
For fans of Band of brothers this is a must.
Very engrossing and very realistic.
Bleak side of a war
I was really excited to watch the series knowing this was a Companion piece to Band of Brothers (BOB) covering the Pacific Theater of Operations during WW-2, the series covers 1st Marine Division's battles on islands such as Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester, Peleliu, and Okinawa. As a standalone series Pacific is excellent, but BOB being there a comparison had to be made and when done I felt Pacific a notch lower in almost every department. It's a different series than BOB in covering more on depressing side of the war than the heroic side.
The series visualizes the war from the viewpoint of three individuals of 1st Marine from very different backgrounds, getting into their private life. Its show how normal citizens become a hero, some are heroes by action during battles, some by just surviving the war and not turning into a monster. A lot of time is spent away from fighting, an episode covers a year spent in Australia, one recovering from battle trauma, another on finding love & getting married. The series focuses more on individual emotions & bonds, frankly, the time spent away from the front is not entertaining as mostly it covers the gloomy side of war, the damaged soldiers & their condition. The sad part is the time spent on war also gets repetitive after a time with most of the islands being similar in nature, the jungles with its malaria, rains, heat & the unrelenting Japs.
The action shown in the series is gorier then heroic, the series probably set out to portray wars as a grim thing and not grand stuff and is successful at it.
"The Pacific" is not "Band of Brothers", not anything like it. However, "The Pacific" has its own unique way of storytelling which constantly draws your attention to the brutality of the Pacific campaign.
Though it's not as compelling as Band of Brothers. The pacific is another masterpiece that must be seen.
