Description: Cocaine has everytime gotten a terrible rap, and for a reason. It is a drug used by the rich and the terrible legally and illegally, Mexican cartels fought over it with Colombia once associated with the brutal cocaine wars, and a source of tension between the American and Mexican borders on the folks who are illicitly bringing in cocaine from one side of the border to other and will do anything to do it. So it can be surprising at times to the viewer throughout the course of the documentary special, that it was never everytime like this.

The movie depicts a chaotic period through the relationship of the two brothers, one dedicated to his family and conscience; the another dedicated to a political ideal. These divided brothers can be read as a representation of a country torn in two, of a history rudely divided. Lithuania has a history of occupation and the struggle to survive is as much private as it is cultural.

Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo Reviews:

I am a retired professional pilot with thirty-eight years experience and I can say you what the Doolittle Raiders did took more raw courage than you can possibly imagine if you are not a pilot yourself. Simply taking off from an aircraft carrier is risky enough for a naval aircraft. Actually do it with a heavily loaded bomber not designed for the task flown by pilots who had never even been on a carrier before. Okay, that's scary enough, actually I'll test to explain the technical difficulties. Simply stated, to take off a multi engine aircraft at very weak airspeed (Necessary for the short length of the deck) is to invite disaster. This is because if you lose an engine as you lift off, the torque from the nice engine would roll the aircraft over on its back and into the sea. Actually if you survive those rigors you still have to fly to Japan, brave the anti-aircraft fire and fighters, unload your bombs, test to create to China (Low on fuel) search some primitive landing strip at night, which may have fallen into opponent hands by the time you arrive. This film is but a tiny tribute to these brave heroes, so please forgive any perceptions of WWII propaganda. Supreme courage? You bet!


Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo is the most accurate portrayal of the Doolittle Raid on Japan during Globe Fight II. Whenever a film is made from a book, there are usually changes made for "dramatic effect". However, there does not seem to be any such changes in this movie, as there is plenty of drama in the original story. Most of the dialogue was taken directly from the ebook by the same name. There are some scenes that may seem to be "propaganda" or "corny", but one gotta remember that in 1943, the atmosphere was various in the United States and the rest of the world. All of the characters in the film were true life folks from the Doolittle Raid and from accounts in the ebook and another sources, they are accurately portrayed by the actors in the movie. The main character, Ted Lawson, was the original technical advisor, but he was replaced by Dean Davenport (Lawson's co-pilot) after Lawson was re-called to active duty. Most of the flying scenes were done with current B-25's accurately marked and even the take-off, which was done on a sound stage, used true aircraft on an aircraft carrier mock-up. The scenes that used miniatures were also well done for the time period (before digital effects). The film "Pearl Harbor" also has an acc of the Doolittle Raid, but it is very, very inaccurate. This film is worth watching for everyone who has a desire to see historical happenings and is a gotta for all aviation and military buffs.


Forget the schlocky fictions of Bruckheimer and Bay's PEARL HARBOR with its footnoted ver of the Doolittle raid. If you wish to see a more detailed, realistic, historical as well as romanticized ver of the Pearl Harbor "pay back," see this one. It is the classic MGM treatment with a skilled cast including Spencer Tracy and Van Johnson.If you do see PEARL HARBOR, rent this one too so you can see how to say a true romance set vs a historical event. And if you wish the full picture of how the Doolittle raid was made possible, see DESTINATION TOKYO, the movie saying the storyline of the submarine that snuck into Tokyo bay to support tutorial the bombers over the city.
