They realise they can stop the attack on Pearl Harbor. But first they have to save a boat full of 1941 idiots and fight some Japanese planes. There are lots of loving close ups of the aircraft carrier’s technology. The CAG (James Farentino of ‘Dead & Buried’) looks at the 1941 boat woman (Katharine Ross) a lot.
There is a hostage situation, an idiot, an explosion and a convenient deserted island. Martin Sheen glowers, stock footage is used and there is a twist ending. This is okay and it is a lot better than ‘Pearl Harbor’.
“What was I supposed to do? Throw him back in the sea?”
“Well at least that would have preserved the natural order of history.”
