The Pacific: Miniseries Reviews

  • Oct 27, 2021

    The Pacific is even more visceral than its not-so-distant HBO relative, Band of Brothers. However, once again HBO produces a war miniseries with excellent cinematography and some gripping stories. The Pacific suffers from a few subplots that, while, watchable, fail to draw interest away from the main storylines, as well as a host of characters that don't quite measure up to the high standards BoB originally set.

    A few episodes drag themselves out on the second watch. But I still remember how much I cried during one death especially. And I did feel sort of the same way again after 6 years (at least 5) I think has it been since I last watched it. So yes for the budget they had definitely a good one.

    Made by Americans for Americans to feel good about being American. Another spiel from Speilberg which is one dimensional, extremely transparent propoganda about how Americans and America saved the world in world world war 2. Really boring past the 1st episode and untolerable from 3rd.

    An exceptional companion piece to Band of Brothers. This miniseries is only occasionally let down by it's writing and structure. Still, a powerful viewing experience.

    This WW2 miniseries was very good. James Badge Dale, Joseph Mazzello, Jon Seda, Rami Malek, Ashton Holmes, and the rest of the cast did a spectacular job in this miniseries. Tom Hanks did a spectacular job on directing this miniseries as well. This true story about the fight in the Pacific during WW2 was very intense, dramatic, and action-packed. It's about defeating the enemy and fighting to survive. If you haven't seen this miniseries yet, check it out sometime. It's a must see.

    Like Band of Brothers, this is fantastic. HBO really knows how to make top notch mini series about true events....

    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.
