Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The time is now. The place is aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz, America's mightiest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on maneuvers in the Pacific Ocean. Suddenly, a freak electrical storm engulfs the ship and triggers the impossible: The Nimitz is hurtled back in time to December 6, 1941, mere hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As the enemy fleet speeds towards Hawaii, the warship's Captain (Kirk Douglas), a Defense Department expert (Martin Sheen), a maverick Air Wing Commander (James Farentino) and a desperate Senator in the Roosevelt administration (Charles Durning) must choose between the unthinkable. Do they allow the Japanese to complete their murderous invasion or launch a massive counter-strike that will forever change the course of history? Katharine Ross and Ron O'Neal co-star in this spellbinding sci-fi action hit filmed on location aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz with the full participation of the U.S. Navy and the ship's crew. Blue Underground is proud to present "The Final Countdown" with an all-new THX-Certified High-Definition Transfer from the original camera negative with remixed 6.1 DTS-ES and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround EX Soundtracks for the ultimate in explosive home theater excitement.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by The Pearl Harbor Paradox A film about time travel on a massive scale. It's a regular chicken and egg conundrum. How would you react upon waking up and it's 1911 and you're at the first Indy 500. You happen to be sitting in a modern race car while the rest of the field is in 1911 roadsters? How about if you and your crew of a nuclear powered aircraft carrier awakening in the waters near Pearl Harbor on December 6th 1941? What would you do as commander of that powerful vessel? Find out how the all star crew of this USS Nimitz navigate these troubled waters. This is a good history lesson as well as an entertaining tale. Originally released in the 1980's the final countdown stands up well to the test of time. 11/16/2012
