Goofs

At one point McWhorter (Tom Sizemore) tells his crew mates that the shark that would pose the greatest danger would be the great white. This shark rarely strays more than 100 miles from a coastline and, other than Hawaii and Tiananmen island. There would have been no great whites where the ship went down. See more »

Like an old man's penis without Viagra!
28 February 2017 | by asus-kybdSee all my reviews

It starts off hard, with heavy action and glorious CGI effects, like a James Bond movie. Japanese Zeros crashing on the deck as Cage directs the gunners to defend the ship. Then it goes limp after the first minute... bring those pills back, damn it! "Tora, Tora, Tora" and "Midway" for their time were far more ingenious, going so far as to use radio controlled model airplanes for most the stunts. In a later scene, a Jap sub just pops out of the water..... PLOOP!!! No splash at all, no water displacement, no slow motion while surfacing.... just PLOOP! $40M, huh? I truly BELIEVE these big budgets are really fronts to launder drug money by Hollywood, HOW you blow $40M and get such cheesy visuals is amazing to me! Too bad Carrie died, bet she could tell us.

WHY do they have to COPY what's already been done to death and stick a half-arsed romance in the middle of rockets and bombs? I'm a pilot, so I like Warbirds, aircraft and aviation. I also LOVE pussy. Yet I know for a fact we pilots NEVER bring our women out to the airport, that's like sticking your pecker in a meat grinder! What is it with these Hollywood Crackheads anyway, huh? And it's ALWAYS a war movie that takes place in the Pacific which has the romance, never in Europe or the western front, maybe Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn!

Nick Cage makes CRAP anyway.... where's the scene with him on a Harley with a flaming skull, barreling down the road after vampires or demons? OH... that's in the sequel! Queue the sharks.... a whole hour of that.... YES, AN ENTIRE HOUR.... which I skipped to see Nick put a bullet in his head for his failed career.
