Audience Reviews for The Finest Hour


I only wish this one was reduced to The Finest Minute. What a piece of bombastic, flag waving sausage. Another tribute to the Navy S.e.a.l.s. , they get involved in fighting that super power known as ...... Iraq? See real footage of ex-president George Bush greeting the troops. All in all, pretty standard fare, this one has a romatic subplot as well with two friends involved with the same woman. I can't restrain myself, this one hit rock bottom with me about 15 minutes into the film. Two Navy S.E.A.L.S. are sent on a dangerous mission to destroy an Iraqi missile installation containing chemical warheads aimed at the U.S. ships entering the Persian Gulf.
