The USS Nimitz, a modern-day nuclear aircraft carrier, is drawn through a time warp from 1980 to a couple days before the Japanese assault on Pearl Harbor, and the crew must decide whether to launch a preemptive strike against the incoming Japanese carrier fleet with their more advanced air wing, or allow history to take its course, which might not happen since they had rescued Senator Chapman, who disappeared shortly before the attack, from his death.

Best Films of 1980 (35 movies items)

"A cheap, yet big budget, gimmicky war film that has its charm and moments but I doubt this is on anyone's mid when thinking of great war films."
