Kirk Douglas, Martin Sheen, Katharine Ross. Includes the fantastic original time-travel adventure tale plus loads of new DVD special features! Limited to 100,000 copies. 2 DVDs. 1980/color/102 min/NR/fullscreen.
It's a bit light for a two-disc set, but the limited edition of The Final Countdown is worth it if only for the half-hour of interviews with the Navy pilots who helped with the filming of the F-14 footage. Two dozen years after the movie, six pilots are interviewed separately and together, and they tell about the experience of flying, how in comparison missile shots in Top Gun are "just bogus," how much they liked the cast, and what they would have done had the final decision been theirs to make. There's also a 14-minute interview with Troma guru Lloyd Kaufman, who served as associate producer; various stills; and a DVD-ROM article from the Commemorative Air Force Dispatch that recounts the experiences of the pilots who flew the Japanese Zeros. Despite some stumbles and a bit of dead air, director of photography Victor J. Kemper provides a reasonably entertaining commentary track. The Final Countdown was briefly available as a poor-quality DVD from Pacific Family Entertainment, and it's safe to say that Blue Underground's new THX-approved high-definition transfer is the best the film has ever looked on home video. The 5.1 Dolby Digital EX and 6.1 DTS ES tracks are limited by their source material, however, and don't have quite the oomph or surround effects one would wish for in the aerial-dogfight scenes. --David Horiuchi
One of my favorite movies EVER thats why I bought it....I can watch it again and again !Published 6 days ago by robin
The movie was pretty good, a bit different for Kirk Douglas. The only complaint I have is that it is suppose to have subtitles and it doesn't. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Barbara Hall
I have seen this many times and have not grown tired of it. A great story and a well made movie. Haunting music. Many twist dealing with time loops. Love the ending.Published 7 days ago by moodygreg
