Review - The Final Countdown

The title of this production is a puzzlement, as the picture lacks a countdown of any kind, final or otherwise. So really the only purpose the title serves is to dig up an earwig from Europe. The story, on the other hand, is an odd little tale about an 80s era aircraft carrier sucked through an unexplained time warp and deposited between Pearl Harbor and the Japanese fleet on December 7, 1941. Should they let history run its course, or should they use their vastly superior firepower to intervene and stop the attack? From the summary alone you can already tell that this plays out like a Twilight Zone episode that goes on five times longer than it needs to. Mildly amusing
