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.

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.
