One of my favorite movies....whats not to love? Kirk Douglas, Matin Sheen, the Nimitz, F-14's shooting down Zeros, awesome carrier flight ops and scenes...

My only complaint...they should've shot the shit out of the japs...and sunk the fleet.

Probably one of the best movies showing shipboard life on a modern navy ship, a carrier to boot. I wore out my VHS copy...thank god it came out on DVD!

Cool music too.

"Splash the Zero's..."

Those were not just any F-14's

They were F-14's from VF-84

Those fighters sure lost alot of their look when they went all subdued.

Absolutely...the coolest cats in the Navy...it sure was a shame when they sh*tcanned the great paint jobs of the 80's. I love the helmets too...one of these days, I am going to one of the helmet guys on eBay, and buying one....

That's the first thing I thought to! Funny how I use to think that song kicked butt!

This horrible, horrible version does something to your butt, too, but kicking ain't it:
