America's finest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the USS Nimitz, is thrown through a time warp from 1980 to Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. Will the crew intervene? Will the course of history be changed forever? Martin Sheen is a hapless observer aboard ship, Charles Durning is a senator who sees the political implications in the situation, and Kirk Douglas goes on and on about ethics and history. The result is little more than a lengthy "Twilight Zone" episode. The Nimitz is actually used throughout the film, adding a minor air of authenticity. leave a comment
