The Final Countdown

What if a 1980s American aircraft carrier (with its modern firepower) time-warped back to Pacific waters just outside Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941? That's the intriguing premise behind this sci-fi adventure that stars Kirk Douglas and Martin Sheen.

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.
Variety Staff, Variety  full review
It's filled with technology, special effects and action. But it just doesn't make any sense.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
The special effects are funnier than, I suspect, they were intended to be.
