  Sure, it's ostensibly about the devastating Dec. 7, 1941 attack launched by the Japanese on the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor — the tragedy that finally brought America into World War II. The you-are-there digital effects are magnificent in the battle scenes, particularly the central sequence — the 40-minute assault on Pearl Harbor. But this leaden mega-budget blockbuster, from the director of "Armageddon," transforms a pivotal moment in history into a feel-good "Independence Day"-styled action film, complete with a gratuitous hour-long coda showing the Yanks striking back via a surprise raid on Tokyo. (Somebody yell "Wahoo!") A tough-to-swallow love triangle (noble nurse Kate Beckinsale is torn by her feelings for best buddies/ace flyboys Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett) is shoehorned into the action, and the script is a mess of predictable plot devices and pathetically corny dialogue that seem lifted from an actual World War II B-movie. With Alec Baldwin and Jon Voight.
