I must have been watching toooo many World War II documentaries that when I viewed THE PACIFIC it has become nothing more than a drag that it put me to sleep a little earlier than my usual. Even before I get to the end of the 3rd part (Melbourne?).
Probably, the dynamic band of Band of Brothers’ Spielberg and Hanks and Van Patten is slipping up already. Some quick and short issues why I dozed off on this one:
Same old same old script: A bunch of gung-ho GIs versus a battalion of easily annihilated clumsy Japs. (war movie Filipino style)
The casts’ hairstyles failed to take me to 1943 Guadalcanal. It’s more like the Hardy Boys on a 1970 Mekong Delta tour.
