1980 – The final countdown

In my movie project I am now at 1980 and this time it happened to be the movie ”The final countdown” that I decided to watch.

This is an american science fiction movie about a modern (1980) aircraft carrier that suddenly travels into some strange wheather phenomena and is transported back to 1941 just a few hours before the japanese are going to strike at perl harbour. So a question that arise in the movie is of course if they should interfear with history and prevent the japanese from attacking using the much more modern weapons they have available.

I thought the idea of this movie was quite interesting and the movie was not bad. However I felt it lacked a bit and that they could have made much more out of it. Some effects in the movie are good but some are very bad.

All in all a ok movie that I rate 5/10.
