I adore the Band of Brothers miniseries. I expected to have similiar affection for The Pacific - especially since I've always been fascinated by that front ever since a college professor of mine regaled the class with tales of the sea battles. It didn't live up to its predecessor. It felt like we spent less time with these guys somehow, and the film seemed limited by a smaller area - like everything was placed on a set that you couldn't escape. It's really too bad. I wish this one had felt as sweeping and engaging as the first. The acting was good for the most part but the whole thing just felt like less than.
