#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Series Online Free – The Pacific follows the lives of a U.S Marine Corps squad during the campaign within the Pacific against the Japanese Empire during WW2. Made by the creators of Band of Brothers, it follows a similar line of thought to outline the hardships of the common man during war. The Pacific is in parts a fast paced war series that can be enjoyed by action lovers whilst containing a more sensitive side when projecting the relationships (brotherhood) of Marines on the battlefield. Where The Pacific takes a new direction from its “older brother” is in its depiction of the lives of soldiers who were picked to return home to increase the sales of war bonds. In doing this it also depicts the life cycle of returned soldiers from initial joy to the eventual feeling of regret and to a certain extent shame felt by soldiers wanting to return to the war in service of either their comrades or nation. Plot: Track the intertwined real-life stories of three U.S. Marines – Robert Leckie, John Basilone, and Eugene Sledge – across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II. A companion piece to the 2001 miniseries Band of Brothers.

Don’t expect “The Pacific” to be a sequel to “Band of Brothers” because it’s not
HBO’s “The Pacific” is an excellent show in it’s own right. While many fans of the previous HBO war series “Band of Brothers” may have high hopes and anticipations that The Pacific will follow suit of its wonderful predecessor, sadly they will be disappointed. The first few episodes are story driven but by the midpoint of the show, all the action begins to come through and some, if not all the action sequences are stellar. In the end, the story itself is driven at a much slower rate and is more dramatic and the visuals of the war in the Pacific are both beautiful and chilling. This is where the show shines the most.
The biggest drawback is that The Pacific certainly lacks the depth of characters on-screen that Band of Brothers delivered but it’s focus is kept mostly on a small group of soldiers. There may be less focus on the characters altogether thus it’s not clear exactly who the main characters are at this point but the objective, the missions, make up for that. After Part I, I wasn’t blown away by it the way I was with Band of Brothers. However, after seeing Part II, I started to fall in love with the show.
Arguably, some say that the real glory of the United States military in World War II was fought in Europe and I somewhat harken to that belief. HBO’s The Pacific may even justify that notion for some because it obviously is no Band of Brothers but, it is a solid show in it’s own right quite possibly depicting what may have been both the most beautiful side of World War II and the loneliest side of it. HBO’s The Pacific really shows the WWII nut the dark side of the war.
Well worth the time
I enjoyed this series very much and can see why there has been so many comparisons with Band Of Brothers. My observation is that in The Pacific many of the characters lack depth and development. The result was that I cared less when ill befell them than I did in Band of Brothers. I think that the first episode could have contained a lot more time letting us get to know the characters better before throwing them into battle.
The battle scenes were done very well and played very realistically. All in all HBO has done it again. Without the HBO and Showtime I think that US grown TV drama would be pretty thin on the ground. The Pacific is well worth the time.
