The time is now. The place is aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz, Americas mightiest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on manoeuvres in the Pacific Ocean. Suddenly, a freak electrical storm engulfs the ship and triggers the impossible: The Nimitz is hurtled back in time to December 6, 1941, mere hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. As the enemy fleet speeds towards Hawaii, the warships Captain (Kirk Douglas), a Defence Department expert (Martin Sheen), a maverick Air Wing Commander (James Farentino) and a desperate Senator in the Roosevelt administration (Charles Durning) must choose between the unthinkable. Do they allow the Japanese to complete their murderous invasion or launch a massive counter-strike that will forever change the course of history?

Martin Sheen plays an efficiency expert sent out to observe on a aircraft carrier. They go through some kind of electrical storm in the middle of the Pacific in 1980, and end up tracking the Japanese invasion force heading for Pearl Harbour, Dec. 6th, 1941. They observe two fighter planes en route that strafe an American yacht carrying a senator, his assistant, and her dog, Charlie. James Farentino plays the carrier's wing commander and rescues the survivors plus one of the pilots they have struck down. The captain is played by Kirk Douglas. The carrier is in a war situation and the top brass on board are unsure as to who their commander-in-chief is. It just might be Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
What ensues is an esoteric debate about how to proceed. The senator, in charge of the senate committee of defence, is also from 1941, and had disappeared just before the attack. What do they do with him? Do they engage in war? What do they tell the crew? When the Japanese prisoner grabs a gun and takes over the sick bay, it complicates everything further. I'm not going to spoil this for you. It's an incredible piece of alternate history science fiction. I absolutely loved it.
So for me, i would not recommand buying the blu-ray, there is no value added over the DVD
I guess "buyer beware" applies here. A complete waste of my money. I no longer plan to purchase anymore products from "Blue Underground" - the company selling this product.
