Storyline

SEptember, 2001. On its last leg homeward, from Pearl Harbour (Hawaii) to San Diego, the USS Constellation hosts a jolly 'tiger cruise' for USNavy, Marines and USNAF relatives, mainly minors ('Navy brats'). Attitudes and emotions vary from simple joy to open frustration, the worst brat being XO commander Gary Dolan's daughter Maddie, who wants him to refuse a promotion to command for a shore job. Then the news of the WCC terror crisis changes everything, as the crew is recalled to war footing. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

USS Constellation was, as depicted, actually returning from her 2001 Western Pacific deployment with "tigers" onboard when the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001 occurred. The airpower show, however, was cancelled as they were scheduled to happen on the day of the attacks. See more »

Goofs

The movie supposedly takes place on the USS Constellation CV-64. On the flight deck, the numbers on the tower read "74," which belong to the USS John C. Stennis. See more »

Quotes

Anthony: One of my friends... their parents worked in those towers. A girl in my class... her dad is a firefighter. I never got tired of looking at them. Those towers. They were just so big and cool. The way the sun would reflect off them... Everything's gunna be so different now.

Outstanding!
9 August 2004 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

I was most impressed with this latest Disney original. I have found many Disney movies to be fun and entertaining, but this one is phenomenal. The story is well written and both entertaining and emotionally intense. The acting is exceptional. Bill Pullman did a great job in this movie. The child actors were right on the mark as well. Troy Evans's portrayal of Mr. Horner was both intensely dramatic and enjoyably comic. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and it sparked interesting conversations with my children. It was a great angle on the 9/11 story and was based on factual events. A friend of mine whose son is in the Navy was actually on a similar cruise on 9/11.

All the themes addressed in the movie, patriotism, obedience, loyalty, compassion and sacrifice are values that are too often ignored in our society today and especially in the movies. Although it doesn't have a snowball's chance (political correctness and all that)...it should win SOME KIND of an award...Best Made for TV Movie?
