Obscure but Great

by B.A.Miron on 5/16/2007

Unique idea! very original, no rehash. Great story, great actors AND great acting. Excellent production values; they spent some money here boys and girls. No spoiler it! is beautiful. If you like world war 2 stories and sci-fi, you'll like this.

Great sci-fi pic. Remember seeing it when it first released. Liked it even then inspite of what the critics had to say. Like it even better now, seeing it again 30+ years later. Acting generally on the good side. The characters were believable. Especially like Katherine Ross. although she had a minor role. Charles Durning was delicious dubious political animal.

The uss nimitz is cruising peacefully 200 miles off pearl harbor when it is suddenly caught in a massive electrical storm and almost immediately the sea becomes calm again.
