Comdr. Kent Dowling:
[Narrating, talking about the assembled carrier pilots]
They know there are no answers as to why they're here. They've been told that it's a "police action", which makes them cops. And others have told them that they're containing a blaze, which makes them firemen. All they know is they're buying time... now and then paying with a life.

Surprisingly enough, most of the action scenes were from real wartime footage which is incorporated very well, its reality adds to the suspense instead of subtracting. The fact that James Michener is one of the characters makes it more interesting, but there's just too much talk about bravery and duty to make this film really shine. Well worth watching, good stars, but not above the routine.
