The Pacific (HBO) (With Exclusive Photo Book)
After watching the Band of Brothers box set at least 3 times in the last couple of months, it was clear to say i was pumped up for The Pacific to start, when the first TV spot came on my TV i thought to myself "This is gonna be one hell of a ride"However. i was slightly let down, The Pacific just lacked something that Band of Brothers had, yes the battle scenes in Pacific are epic and it has its moments of brilliance but i felt nothing for the characters, i felt like they have focused more on the blow your head of your shoulders action, which dont get me wrong, it did, episode 2 for example but Robert Leckies crew which stayed with us from episode 1 to about 5 or 6 i think? and that was them gone. Then comes along Eugene Sledge and his group but they were really unlikeable characters.I went into the final episode hoping for it to go out with a bang, sadly it did not, i was let down, when the credits started rolling i stood up, looked at my TV and said, "is that it" and the fact the final episode made me feel like that let the whole series down.
Now, if you have read this review i am not telling you not to give this a go, it does have its moments of sheer brilliance but in my opinion it let me down, it dashed my high hopes i had for this miniseries and i will now begin Band of Brothers again.
