The Final Countdown (1980)

PG 08/01/1980 (US) WarActionScience Fiction 1h 43m

Trapped outside the boundaries of time and space... 102 aircraft... 6,000 men... all missing.


During routine manoeuvres near Hawaii in 1980, the aircraft-carrier USS Nimitz is caught in a strange vortex-like storm, throwing the ship back in time to 1941—mere hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
