DVD Review: The Pacific (15)

THE epic 10-part sequel to the critically acclaimed WWII drama, Band of Brothers, the series moves the ferocious fighting to the Pacific Theatre, but loses none of the intense action.

The mini-series follows US Marines as they fight both the feared Japanese forces and the unforgiving elements but does not sensationalise the action.

As well as the physical aspect of the war The Pacific explores the emotional effect of the conflict to good effect.

A must for any discerning dvd fan.
