The Final Countdown

In 1980, the US Navy's most powerful warship, the USS Nimitz, is caught in a storm during routine manoeuvres in the Pacific. Enveloped by a strange green light, the ship passes through a vortex and when they emerge, their communications have been cut off. The ship's Captain (Kirk Douglas) sends out a patrol and the F-14 pilots are shocked to encounter vintage Japanese warplanes.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Mr Lasky's helicopter taking off from Pearl Harbor has the number 9010 under the 733 on the side of the helicopter. When it lands on the ship, the number 9717 is under the 733.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Commander Owen's F-14 is lining up to land on the carrier in the beginning of the movie, there's a brief shot where you can see another man's face in the pilot's rear-view mirror during the shot from the back seat of the cockpit.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): As the second "Timestorm" approaches, the ship's meteorologist (nicknamed "Black Cloud") is called over to examine the storm on the scope. Before he looks into it, there is one seaman standing beside him. When he looks up a second later there are four of them.
  • The time travel storm is the same special effect as seen in The Lathe of Heaven (1980) (TV) during the climatic dream sequence confrontation.
