For all its awfulness, this film is not a documentary. I'm sure that not many people who saw it are 1940's weapons experts. The plot has enough holes in it to fly a squadron through.

What else can we expect from a Jerry Bruckheimer production? It was a soap opera plot, with the attack on Pearl Harbor thrown into a special effects dominated film.
