Trivia

The "retired" USS Iowa represented at the end is actually USS North Carolina (Nickname: "The Showboat") BB55 on display in Wilmington, North Carolina. It was the first "modern" battleship of the Washington Conference design laid down in 1937 and commissioned in 1941. When it was launched. BB55 was a 39,000 ton 739 foot ship and was soon dwarfed by the the bigger battleships that followed. Iowa BB61 at 45,000 tons and 839 feet long was laid down in 1940, launched in 1942 and finally commissioned in 1943. The famous Missouri BB63 "Mighty Mo" followed in 1944 and as being in the Iowa class, retained very similar dimensions. North Carolina's twin stack arrangement in profile are a bit unique compared to later battleship designs and were shared by its sister ship, BB56 USS Washington, scrapped in 1961. Information from navsource.org. A hapless seaman was on deck during the firing of one of the 16 inch guns and was presumed blown overboard and had to be reported as "missing in action, presumed dead". A chief radar-man on Showboat said that he was outside his radar station way up above deck on a platform on the big conning tower to watch the firing of the 5-inchers and had his hat blown off and lost his hearing for a while. He said he never did that again. See more »

Goofs

(at around 3 mins) the exhaust and vapor trail of the missile to the left of the screen completely disappears for two full frames, soon enough after the scene changes that nobody who hadn't already blinked at the beginning of that same shot could be expected to have blinked and missed it.

Holy crap
21 June 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In all of my stupidity, I thought this was the big motion picture that was out in the cinema so I bough the DVD. Honestly, I have seen a lot of movies, some better then others, but this is the biggest crap ever. Even the gunshots are fake and the actors move their guns back and forth like they shoot and CGI is added later to make it look like they fire it....

I had a deja vu feeling back when the movie "The day the earth stood still" came out and in the same year that awful rip off "e Day the Earth Stopped" appeared. Same thing as this, only 4 years later. The pure waste of money that went into this.....

An alarm bell should have gone off when I saw the cast line up.....all formerly successful movie stars that are looking to score another buck....regardless the script. Shame on them.
