Storyline

Park any subtlety at the threshold. The spits and spats keep the anchor shining in this Naval officer adventure. Who knows what is next? The children are precious. The interplay between home, the office, and the boat keep you edgy. Sadness sets in as you see the decline of loyalty to purpose. Written by amethystxjane

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie Walker is shown walking down the gangplank. As he approaches the Officer of the Deck the emblem on his cap is that of a Navy Warrant Officer. As he walks down the plank his hat emblem is that of a naval officer. When he gets into his MG the hat emblem is back to the Warrant officer emblem. See more »

what a great show
17 March 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The TV Guide ad for this movie said that Powers Boothe brings to the role of an American traitor the same chilling conviction that won him an Emmy award for the 1980 tv movie Guyana Tragedy: The Story Of Jim Jones. Boothe is both an actor whom you don't see enough of and one who has never been given just due. He is a really great bad guy with his sinister handsomeness and deep baritone voice. John Walker was truly a despicable traitor who was motivated by simple greed. I just cannot understand how he could get his own son involved! This movie is a masterful adaptation of Pete Earley's book. What gets me is that Walker thought he was so smart (Earley said that he reminded him of a dog chasing his own tail around and around) but he was a fool. If our country had gone to war with Russia and they defeated us, they wouldn't have shown Walker any special treatment. He would have been in the prison camps along with everybody else.
