Product Overview

The Pacific is an epic 10-part miniseries that delivers a realistic portrait of WWII's Pacific Theatre as seen through the intertwined odysseys of three U.S. Marines - Robert Leckie, John Basilone and Eugene Sledge. The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain firests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day. The viewer will be immersed in combat through the intimate perspective of this diverse, relatable group of men pushed to the limit in battle both physically and psychologically against a relentless enemy unlike any encountered before.

Editors Note
Note BAND OF BROTHERS producers Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg re-team to produce this ten-hour World War II miniseries based on the books WITH THE OLD BREED by Eugene Sledge and HELMET FOR MY PILLOW by Robert Leckie. Additional interviews conducted by the filmmakers in collaboration with Hugh Ambrose (son of late BAND OF BROTHERS author Stephen E. Ambrose) detail the arduous odysseys of U.S. Marines Sledge, Leckie, and John Basilone from their first skirmishes in Guadalcanal to their eventual return to American soil following V-J Day.
Reviews
Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "[S]trong scripts from George Pelecanos and SPEED's Graham Yost deliver top-drawer quality." 12/01/2010
Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "THE PACIFIC is to BAND OF BROTHERS what the war against Japan was to the Allies' slog through Western Europe; messier, more disjointed and in its way more disturbing." 12/01/2010

ReviewSource New York Daily News
Review HBO's "The Pacific" feels like the street fight that wouldn't end.Executive-produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, this 10-hour production on World War II in the Pacific is an ambitious, imperfect, intense and often compelling look at combat that gets dirtier and more ragged with each episode.Along the way, it also breaks down the men who fight it, though in the end it suggests the human spirit can often survive what the human mind inflicts.While the series tracks the Pacific Theater from the first Guadalcanal landing in 1942 through the Japanese surrender in 1945, the broader historic sweep is left for another program. "The Pacific" sticks to the perspective of the Marines on the ground, for whom time has no endpoint and the world has no big picture.
