When the full reverse command was given, an underwater view showed the propellers reversing their rotation. Arleigh Burke destroyers utilize reversible pitch propellers and therefore do not change their rotational direction during reversing maneuvers, they simply change the pitch of the blades to provide reversing thrust.

There are a lot of people who are attacking this movie because they think the plot is scientifically weak. I'm not going to go into the details but we all have to remember that this is sci-fi based on a simple board game...and I really enjoyed it. This is not sci-fi based on deep scientific models or futuristic mythology. This is not Inception, The Matrix or Prometheus. If you really want to get technical don't go see any sci-fi which involves hostile aliens that want to take over our planet. Truth is, any being that had the tech to travel here would simply get here and from a safe distance 1. Introduce specific bio/nano destroyers that would kill all life here. 2. Introduce specific bio/nano cleansers that would clean up that bio- mess. 3. Introduce bio builders specific to their needs. 4. Introduce their own lifeforms. Therefore if we really want to be nick pickers about the science let's go all the way and not accept any of it... or just go with it and enjoy this movie like I did.
