Back in that glorious decade of manly movie making that was the 1980s, it was pretty easy to make a movie about any idea that sounded epic enough in the head of studio execs. The Final Countdown is a perfect example of this. Some guy, as he was drinking his morning coffee, thought to himself: "wouldn't it be badass if an American aircraft carrier from today went back in time to blow up the Japanese in World War II?" And the answer was yes, it would be.. And on the sixth day, God made The Final Countdown.
|Yes, that freakish alternate universe wormhole looks perfectly safe.|
|HEY JAPAN! WE TOP GUN NOW.|
|Note to time travelers: don't pick up kamikaze hitchhikers.|
|"What year are we in, Captain? "I dunno, LOL."|
TL;DR - Americans go back in time and wonder if they should kick Japan's ass and prevent WW2 - 6.5/10
