5.0 out of 5 stars A multi-dimensional WWII movie., April 13, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Destination Tokyo (DVD)
I just finished rewatching this great war movie in honor of the anniversary of General Doolittle's 1942 raid on Tokyo. After watching, I'm in awe of all that's going on in this movie. The special effects are top notch for a movie made during war time---seeing the sub going through authentic looking Japanese mine fields was nail biting. Cary Grant is very effective as the captain with a great supporting cast---I sure did underrate John Garfield--he was one heck of an actor. This does not have lots of action--instead, it focuses on the trails & tribulations of the crew & their living environment under extremely harsh conditions while trying to complete their mission. It's a compliment to the director that the focus is not always on the star--Mr. Grant--but instead the main focus is on the mission & we also get to know a little bit about many a crew member. Give this flick a view---I guarantee you'll sit through this strapped into your seat. I salute our Silent Service.
