The Final Countdown Reviews

Little more than a lengthy Twilight Zone episode.

As a documentary on the USS Nimitz, The Final Countdown is wonderful. As entertainment, however, it has the feeling of a telepic that strayed onto the big screen.

One of the better time-travel movies. Generates lots of suspense because it's directed and acted with a great deal of conviction. John Scott's musical score is outstanding.

An idea worthy of Harlan Ellison, but disappointingly fumbled.

It's filled with technology, special effects and action. But it just doesn't make any sense.

The special effects are funnier than, I suspect, they were intended to be.

Great what if sci-fi with a nuclear aircraft carrier, a time warp, and the attack on Pearl Harbor.
