Realistic Science Fiction at It's VERY BEST!

A Great All-Star Cast and story are the headliners of this 1980 classic realistic science fiction flick.
What if before the Bombing of Pearl Harbor had ever taken place, that the power of a naval nuclear aircraft carrier called the USS Nimitz from one of the United States Navy's power houses had been present during the Japanese sneak attack? This becomes the scenario when during basic war game exercises in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii,the USS Nimitz becomes engulfed and is sent through a time warp and placed back in time hours before the attack,the USA suffered in what was the country's worst sneak attacks on December 7, 1941 when the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor.
This attack forced the United States into World War II on one of the most devasting attacks on American soil since the British tried to take Washington DC during the War of 1812.
What would happen if the United States did have the nuclear capability of the Aircraft carrier Nimitz and all it's firepower during World War II? The coarse of history would drastically have changed the world. And World War II it's self would have ended much sooner. History changing perhaps, the United States would have ruled the world paving the way for Democracy and freedom for other countries too live by along with it's citizens?
Filmed on location and in around Pearl Harbor and the Hawaiian Islands. This is one movie thats definitely worth adding to your movie library list!

CAST: Kirk Douglas, Martin Sheen, Charles Durning, Kathrine Ross, James Farentino and Ronnie Cox

MIND BENDING

Stories concerning the paradox of time travel befuddle my wife and THE FINAL COUNTDOWN is no exception.
Years after first seeing it, she is still likely to ask (apropos of nothing at all) "But how did he...?" or "Why didn't he...?"
In spite of the billing of Kirk Douglas and Martin Sheen, the aircraft carrier Nimitz and it's Tomcat fighter planes are the real stars of this movie.
Briefly, the Nimitz sails into an electrical phenomenon and is transported back to the eve of Pearl Harbor. The captain's dilemma is this: does he intervene to thwart the attack and thus change history, or does he let the events play out as they have always played out?
Things to dazzle you: the beautiful score, somehow thrilling and nostalgic at once, and the sight of Zeroes and Tomcats briefly sharing the same sky.
A truly wonderful movie.

Would You Stop Pearl Harbor From Being Bombed???????

This is movie is pure entertainment! It is one of my favourite time-travel movies. Originally released theatrically in the Summer of 1980. The premise is simple an aircraft carrier operating in the Pacific, enters a time warp, worm-hole, time corridor, whatever description you choose, & ends up arriving the day before Pearl Harbor is to be bombed by the Japanese!
What would you do? What would anyone do? Thoroughly enjoyable and stars the likes of Kirk Douglas, Martin Sheen,Katherine Ross, Ron O'Neal, Charles Durning, James Farentino, Soon-Tek Oh, just to name a few & produced by Lloyd Kaufman, who has a bit rols also!
A treasure to add to anyones' dvd library. Highly recommended.

the Final Counfdown (2004,dvd)

The story line of a modern era nuclear aircraft carrier transported back to the eve of the attack on Pearl Harbor; December 7, 1941 is an interesting one. The possible effect on the time/space continuem is worthy of the best science-fiction scenarios.. And not explored by the writers of this film..
What makes this film truely remarkable is the Air Wing of the ship.. It was filmed at the introduction of the F-14 Tomcat fighter... The planes all carry the full color markings that have since been replaced with low visibilaty grey. The markings were truely beautiful. In this electronic-warefare age, those markings will sadly never be used again.

The Final Countdown DVD

What a great movie!! The concept of a nuclear aircraft carrier caught in an electromagnetic storm and being transported back in time to the eve of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Imagine if that one carrier decided to intervene and use its massive firepower against the Japanese attack aircraft. 60 F-14's against 300+ Zeros. With the threat of changing the course of history, the crew of the carrier must make the decision to stop the Japanese. Will they do it? Buy the movie and find out. It's fantastic, you won't be disappointed.
