The movie, The Final Countdown, is the story of the U.S.S. Nimitz, a nuclear powered aircraft carrier on routine maneuvers in the Pacific on December 7, 1980. While on patrol the Nimitz suddenly encounters a wild and massive electrical storm that once passed leaves the aircraft carrier 200 miles off Pearl Harbor just prior to December 7, 1941. The U.S.S. Nimitz has been thrown back in time which becomes clearer to the captain and her crew with each passing moment. Intertwined with this historical backdrop are characters like Senator Sam Chapman who was killed in a Japanese straffing attack minutes prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor. The captain is at once faced with the dilema of intervening and thus stopping the attack and changing the course of history or alternatively allowing events to unfold as they had originally. Just as events are nearing a climax the electrical storm reappears and transports the U.S.S. Nimitz back to the future. This occurs before the ship can recover their downed flight leader who is left on an island on December 7, 1941. This movie is Sci-Fi fantasy at its best a causes the viewer to ponder what might have happened had the captain been successful in stopping the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Starring Kirk Douglas, Martin Sheen and Katherine Ross among others. Full screen in color. Released in 1980. Runtime 103 minutes.
