2 all gory but no story.MikeyWong | 11/10/2010 | See all MikeyWong's reviews (3)Ok so a WWII series is supposed to be entertaining.The pacific series did supply this entertainment level. It was glorious, bloody, and violent... what every war series wants. It tells the story (i'll come to this later) about marines in Japanese islands and tells there personal story, it has various narratives but is it all personal?Now so here's my counter argument.firstly in comparison to that of Hanks' and Spielberg' first series band of brothers(B.O.B) it is no where near as good.B.O.B managed to bring in an amazing compelling story yet keep glorious NON BIASED battle scenes like the D-DAY landings.The pacific is mindless violence on a biased scale, and if you are a 'history freak' like me it really infuriates you when you watch or read something which is very unaccurate. the series lacks narrative i feel, if you try create a series like this you have to make it more personal, i watched it atleast twice and i cant remember one of the soldier' name, yet i remember the characters from B.O.B after the same amount of viewing times. Also one point i would like to add is that the americans did indeed show up late again, like they did in WWI thanks a lot guys, then you take all the credit for what you do and publish films about it.overall, if you want an account on the REAL battles in the pacific i advise you not to buy this as it is a biased account from the American point of view.however if you are looking for fighting every 10 minutes this will be perfect... hope this helped.
