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.
