Hey! Novelist Robert Harris has spoken out against the re-writing of history by Hollywood. A bit previous in the year of Pearl Harbour, but still needed to be said. After all, much of the time, the restructurings of time and character are non-sensical, or change for the sake of it. Losing the Carpathia from 'Titanic' weakened the film no-end. And the super speed walking of William Wallace troops in 'Braveheart' meant we never saw actually how much of an endeavour walking all those miles at that time actually was. Bottom line? You can't improve on history.
