Goofs

When the ship is returning to Hawaii, music is played through the loudspeakers, including those on deck. As the ship did not have an escort and was trying to be as stealthy as possible, this never would have been allowed. See more »

User Reviews

 
A good story made bad through awful CGI and props.
22 October 2016 | by moreirajfSee all my reviews

I was really interested in this movie but oh boy, what have these people done? This is one of the worst CGI works I have seen in years, they simply destroyed the movie as a whole. The ship appears washed out, never matches the surroundings. Every action scene is CGI'd, in a cheap way. Scenes on the deck, when explosions happen are clearly fireworks!!! I could not believe my eyes. And some scenes are repeated! I never reviewed on IMDb but created an account just to tell others what a bad work this was. I was really interested in the movie but the lousy work that has been done simply could not pass without being noticed. Watch it and see for yourself. What a disappointment!
