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

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.

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

An idea worthy of Harlan Ellison, but disappointingly fumbled.

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.
| Original Score: 8/10

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