Storyline

Park any subtlety at the threshold. The spits and spats keep the anchor shining in this Naval officer adventure. Who knows what is next? The children are precious. The interplay between home, the office, and the boat keep you edgy. Sadness sets in as you see the decline of loyalty to purpose. Written by amethystxjane

Ivans spies were Uncle Sams finest.
30 May 2000 | by yenloSee all my reviews

This is one of those made for TV films (and there aren't many left like this one) that grabs your attention fast and your hooked. The true story of U.S. Navy Chief Warrant Officer John Walker who had access to Top Secret material and sold these goods to the Soviets. The film covers several years as Walker spies for the Soviets along with his brother and a buddy then retires from the Navy and enlists the services of his own son who was serving in the Navy. Powers Booth does not resemble the real John Walker in any way and I found this to be a little distracting but nonetheless gives a solid performance, as does Lesley Ann Warren as his wife. The film is a little on the long side but well told.

It was interesting that when the Walker case broke the U.S. Navy then began to crack down on security. Having been stationed on a Navy Combat ship at the time every crewmember on board became a suspect to the same things Walker had done. Everyone with the exception of Officers and Chief Petty Officers who it was claimed didn't do such treasonous things. However Walker his brother Arthur and their buddy Whitworth were Officers and Chief Petty Officers. This film helps expose the often times hypocritical nature of the military yet also shows that the nation can never truly be safe from espionage.
