A stellar cast of character actors, including Stacy Keach and David Caruso, drives this made for TV 1990s movie regarding one of the most infamous Naval sinkings, and immortalized by Robert Shaw’s haunting speech in Steven Spielberg’s seminal 1975 film JAWS.
And if your heart be made of malleable stuff, this movie will move it. And make clear that for every hero who valiantly loses his life, there is a politician ready to make that loss and that war… a folly; about profit rather than principle.
It is clear the common theme of war, is betrayal of the warriors; and the only sane memorial or response to war, is to work mightily… to have no more of them.
The DVD is a bit costly for a bare-bones affair but today, if you are an Amazon Prime member, you can watch the film free via streaming.
