Increasingly frustrated by his role campaigning for war bonds, Basilone convinces the Marines to allow him to train troops headed for combat. Transferred to Camp Pendleton, he enjoys a whirlwind romance with an initially reluctant female Marine, Lena Riggi. But the couple know they are living on borrowed time, as Basilone is soon to take part in the Marine landing on Iwo Jima.

  • Maureen Ryan

    Certain moments may verge on cliche (and once in a while, the dialogue is a little corny), but overall, The Pacific is crafted and acted with such loving devotion that it's hard to find fault with its sincerity and sentimental forays.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    It is a gem of a production and would be a highlight of any TV season. Pacific, in its totality, conveys a sense of the combat experience that is as complete and realistic as any work of film could be.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    As important as those set battles scenes are to the series, they are blended beautifully with the bravery, frailties, strength and weaknesses of the actual people involved.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    From this, you will gain a keen understanding of what lies beneath those endless rows of markers at any military cemetery. This is an honest and often magnificent tribute to the 1st Marine Division.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    The Pacific balances the visceral virtuosity of its war sequences with poignant, stirring portraits. Once you sign on, you have to see what happened to these men--the sign of expert storytelling. An epilogue supplies crucial updates.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    The Pacific is magnificent in its visual and graphically visceral scope and shattering in its emotional, deeply personal impact.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    An equally spectacular, equally triumphant yet tonally divergent work that stands with "Band of Brothers" as the best war movie ever made for TV.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    The Pacific is a superb, viscerally moving and harrowing depiction of World War II and a worthy complement to "Band of Brothers" (2001).

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    It will repay you with a brutal but eloquent story that's finally less about how men fight and die than what happens to them when they fight and survive. It will show you how character and sheer, unfair randomness combine to produce cruelty or decency. And it will make you feel deeply for the men who return.

    Time Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    It's the jungle version of Saving Private Ryan's opening battle, over and over across 10 hours. Why, then, is this so excitingly powerful instead of just numbing? Because the stakes are huge: The historical momentum pulls you in and drags you along.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    Stunning in a different way are the three Marines at the center of the series. In their true stories and, more importantly, their individual responses to the demands of warfare, we find a perfect trinity of action, emotion and intellect.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Paige Wiser

    It’s a majestic, 10-part movie medal of honor for every person who ever put on a uniform because he believed he was one of the good guys.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    The Pacific groans with technically preposterous battle scenes, but it is the minute behavior of ordinary men both in and after those extraordinary circumstances that takes your breath away and helps put The Pacific in a class of its own among war movies.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rick Porter

    The Pacific never feels like anything less than a cohesive whole. It's really a remarkable piece of television. I know what I'm doing for the next 10 Sunday nights.

    Zap2it (Inside the Box) Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    By dramatizing the true stories of the men who fought there, Spielberg and Hanks craft perhaps their most psychologically grounded work.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Chuck Barney

    As its lofty production price tag suggests, The Pacific is bursting with epic sprawl and extravagance. But like any effective film of its kind, it also contains a brand of intimacy that will have you bonding with its characters and caring deeply about their fates.

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    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.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    There’s no performance quite on par with Damian Lewis’s star turn as the quiet, decent company leader in "Band," but the three leads all take advantage of their showcase roles to craft characters that transcend both war movie cliches and the actors’ own mixed backgrounds.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    If you're a fan of nuanced, character-driven story-telling, there's no question The Pacific is the superior effort.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    The Pacific is as brutally simple and direct--and as oblivious to modern PC sensibilities--as the Marine's letter. Produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, this 10-part HBO miniseries is a loving but anguished tribute to the men who fought on the bloody island hellholes that comprised World War II's Pacific theater.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    The Pacific has both grand scale and intimacy. It builds in intensity as the series proceeds.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    In the fog of war movies, some events are hard to follow, a few characters are easily confused, but the series is never less than spellbinding.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Mazzello and Dale both add to the humanity of The Pacific with their committed performances, even when the disorienting narrative seems to be working against them.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    I'll say now, before I get down to picking its nits--it has a few, and most might be predicted from the Spielberg oeuvre--that it's a splendid production, absolutely worth watching in its 10-hour entirety.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Obvious or not, I watched most of the 10 episodes without the scene-setters and was occasionally lost. But if the battles aren't always distinctive, the characters are.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Heather Havrilesky

    If you adored "Saving Private Ryan" and "Band of Brothers" (I enjoyed but didn't love both), then "The Pacific" is well worth your time. But if you're sometimes left cold by the epic films that others gush over, if you're often lukewarm on Spielberg and expect more from a war movie than just realistic battle scenes, then I would skip the 10 hours of viewing time and rent "The Thin Red Line" instead.

    Salon Full Review
  • Peter Swanson

    Ultimately, what a series like this aims to do is to pay homage to the marines who sacrificed their lives. The Pacific succeeds at that task, asking its audience to imagine what those battles must have been like from the ground level, and for that alone, it's worth watching. But The Pacific fails by trying to wrest big emotional moments from its already compelling narrative.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    What the production most sorely lacks, though, is a strong sense of cohesion, which often makes the hours play more like loosely assembled snapshots of the war without a compelling hook to pull the audience along. Nor do any of the key performers really distinguish themselves, dwarfed as they are by the general sense of pageantry--the sound and fury--that usually surrounds them.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nancy Franklin

    There’s no question that the creators of The Pacific set out to honor the marines’ experience; they haven’t exactly failed to do that, but neither have they succeeded in leading viewers to a deeper appreciation of this--then and now--faraway war.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    But for all the noble collaboration, for all its division of writing and directing duties and its tactical approach to deployment of film crews, The Pacific becomes a very good miniseries that fails to arrive at a coherent, artistic sensibility.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Aaron Barnhart

    Unlike the previous Hanks-Spielberg efforts, each of these men is really on his own journey, and the changing shift of focus doesn’t help us build affection for the characters, either. The other problem with “The Pacific” is not really its doing. We’re in two wars now; comprehending a third seems a tall order for most people.

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Cynthia Fuchs

    In its insistence on the chaos of battles and the confusion of downtime, the series also offers another “harsh reality,” that these decent men are exploited by their faceless government, again and again. If this story is not explicit in the bloody surface of The Pacific, it is a persistent, distressing undercurrent.
