Tora! Tora! Tora!, the code for absolute surprise, is the historic first American-Japanese co-production. Showing the bombing of Pearl Harbour from both sides of the story, it was shot both in America and japan.
Examining the American blunders that left the key naval and air force base open to attack by the Japanese, the second half of the film is a feat of cinematic engineering, an incredible recreation of the attack itself.
Featuring a sprawling cast of American and Japanese newcomers, the real star is the climactic attack, an incredible feat of cinematic wizardry and engineering, recreating this historic event.
