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 »

Low budget tour De farce
20 May 2012 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Low budget, low quality and low acting skill! I hope this was shot on digital because it would have been a complete waste of celluloid! Special effects worse than most junior school plays. Pure rubbish. No doubt the creators are trying to bamboozle punter into thinking that this is the movie Battleship. Ships and aliens. Doh! Don't waste you time or money of this one! If this doesn't leave you feeling nauseous with disgust then you need to get out more! What a sad use of a fine warship with a proud history. Shameful! Seriously, if you have a choice of root canal treatment or watching this movie, go and see the dentist. This is like drilling without Novocaine.
