The current issue of Newsweek
features one of the first reviews of Pearl Harbor
, the summer's most anticipated blockbuster. Critic David Ansen
applauds the pic's dazzling special effects ("Pearl Harbor
is the very model of a modern blockbuster... [it's] violent and thrilling"), but pans the love triangle at the heart of the $135 million epic ("...almost nothing about its human drama rings true"). In related news, plans for a special Pearl Harbor
edition of ABC's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire
featuring U.S. senators and stars from the film have been scrapped. According to USA Today
, it didn't meet Senate guidelines.
