Overall this series offers an excellent recreation of war in the Pacific theatre.

Acting is uniformly good throughout and, as is to be expected from Spielberg, the production values are high.

There are a few slow moments but these are easily overshadowed by the battle sequences.

If you enjoy this series, read the books by E. B. Sledge and Robert Leckie from which it is based. They retell in vivid detail the true horror of this war in all its inhumanity and filth in a way that motion pictures cannot quite reach.

Format: DVD
The series follows a group of young men throughout WWII from just after Pearl Harbour to after VJ Day. Our heroes start at Guadalcanal, sojourn in Melbourne, then to Peleliu, Iwo Jima, and the sad tail of civilian strife on Okinawa. The series was very good...but not great. The actors and producers were just not able to produce that final level of 'grit' makes it truly realistic. The incessant insects, the lack of water, being constantly soaked to the skin for days... not quite there. Same with the actors, good overall, but nobody was excellent. You are always watching a good show but never taken to that visceral emotional level that a truly great movie or series does. (For example, Season 1 of ROME)

Even though I'm not quite done it yet, I find the Pacific extremely heavy--it's not as entertaining as Band of Brothers, the characters are not quite as lovable, and the themes seem considerably darker. Notwithstanding, the acting, cinematography, and budget all seem a step up. Overall, these factors combine to make it feel more realistic and less "hollywood" than BoB.

In summary: an excellent series, especially if you want to know more about the American Pacific Assault, but very emotionally intense.

I Can not say enough about this movie,so true to fact, like you were living every moment for real,it made you cry and sometimes smile but it gave you an idea what those boys that served our countries went through. And what got to me and i am sure other viewers, they did not know what to expect.The movie The PACIFIC showed all of that and then some . Great performance and as true as your going to get. ----jma.

This is one of the best accounts of the Pacific War I have ever seen. It is hard to watch in many places as it depicts war as accurately as is possible in a movie. I have read Helmet for My Pillow, the book this is based on and it follows that very well. If you appreciate this type of movie I highly recommend it. The other thing is all the characters in the movie are based on real people, using their real names. At the end, there is a very interesting summary of all the main characters involved.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I read the book, which is a bit choppy (with 5 or so `stories' running at the same time), but it gives the reader a pretty broad based view of the conflict from air, naval-air, US POW's, USMC and the replacements. The HBO series sticks to a simpler plot. The obvious comparison to Band Of Brothers further disappoints. The characters in Pacific don't resonate like the BOB's ones and Pacific suffers from the lack of likeable characters that we can empathise with. Really, without reading the book, I wouldn't have picked up the story, the show is all over the place with too many unlikeable cast members. Not the best HBO WW2 series and it's a good job I only paid $49 through Amazon, not the store price which is double.

In summation, if you liked Band of Brothers, Pacific will disappoint. The DTS 7.1 sound is pretty good though.....

Movie follows a story of three men who fought in the Pacific theatre during world war two. It follows closely the heroic adventures in battle and dramatically depicts the negative changes to each of their lives throughout varies the various battle campaigns they participated in and struggled through in the Pacific fighting the Japanese during world war 2.

I watched this series a couple of years ago but wanted to own it myself so I bought the Blu-ray set. I can't wait to watch it again. Maybe not quite as good as Band of Brothers but still excellent.
