The second half of ‘Pearl Harbor’… Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944)

Thirty Seconds Over TokyoIf you watched Michael Bay’s romantic threesome flick ‘Pearl Harbor’, than you’ve already got the premise of the film. Now, you just need to watch the better version of it.

‘Thirty Seconds’ is easily one of the best WWII films of the 40’s, released just prior to the surrender of the Japanese Empire. It remains true to the original story, based upon the memoirs of the man who flew the mission. In ‘Pearl Harbor’, we see Alec Baldwin, here we upgrade slightly to Spencer Tracy. Both play the Colonel Doolittle role well, but Tracy is the original and the best. Though the pacing isn’t brisk, the film is worth it and can qualify as WWII epic.
