Tora, Tora, Tora Blu-Ray Edition!

Hello Neighbors,

This review is somewhat different than most as it is of a classic film, Tora, Tora, Tora.  I thought this would be a good item to review being  historical as it deals with the bombing of Pearl Harbor.  The film, originally done in 1970 and winner of the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects, looks tremendous on this new Blu-ray edition!  Simply put, it looks like a modern film, not one from over 40 years ago!  This film has been appreciated over the years for being particularly accurate in the details of this tragic event, which is exactly why it has been labeled a docu-drama, providing the facts while still maintaining a story-telling feel as you watch it.  Compared to the movies of today, Tora, Tora, Tora is very tame regarding violence, although I was somewhat surprised and disappointed that a few curse words were in the film, despite its "G" rating.

This Blu-ray DVD edition comes LOADED with extra's including the Day of Infamy Documentary, the AMC Backstory, The History VS Hollywood and the very special Fox Movietone News Clips, all regarding the accuracies of the movie, as well as many other interesting features such as the Behind the Scenes Gallery, the Production Gallery, Commentary and the original trailer!  In addition this Tora, Tora, Tora Blu-ray DVD comes specially sealed in a 10 page booklet that itself contains some pictures of the film as well as biographies of the main persons involved in that "Day of Infamy" December 7th, 1941 and the actors that portray these men.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive a copy of Tora, Tora, Tora for review purposes.  All quotes are taken from the email or website.  All thoughts and opinions are entirely mine.
