The harrowing true story of the crew of the USS Indianapolis, who were stranded in the Philippine Sea for five days after delivering the atomic weapons that would eventually end WWII. As they awaited rescue, they endured extreme thirst, hunger, and relentless shark attacks.Written by
When the wreckage of the USS Indianapolis was discovered in August 2017, some 72 years after it sank, there were still 19 crew members still living. See more »
When at the mansion discussing the proposal, before the flight, one of the sailors says "you miss 100% of the shots you don't take." That is a Wayne Gretzky quote from 1983, not prior to WWII. See more »
Bad across the board. One of the few movies I would really want my money back from.
Bad acting, bad plot, horrible cgi, bad script. I really can not find anything positive to say about this film. Even at 128 minutes its was way too long for the lack of substance. There is a scene where McVay speaks to the Japanese Sub Commander. It was pretty schmaltzy, but it had a moment of decent drama when they just looked at each other.
I am embarrassed and ashamed that this pile of crud is supposed to reflect on what happened to those men.
You are better off reading the book "In Harms Way" to get some sort of feel for what they went through. Heck for that matter you are better off watching Jaws and having Quint (Robert Shaw) tell the story about his tattoo, and the story of why he will not wear a life jacket.
