About the Movie
In the waning days of World War II, the Navy warship USS Indianapolis secretly delivered one of two atomic bombs that would eventually end the war. The Japanese attacked and sank the heavy cruiser. The USS Indianapolis’ mission was so classified it was not reported missing, and no one knew the ship had been attacked until four days later. Of the 1197 crew members, nearly 300 went down with the ship. Stranded in the shark-infested waters of the Philippine Sea, the remaining survivors of the USS Indianapolis endured hunger, thirst, heat, delirium, relentless shark attacks and the death of many shipmates. Five days later only 316 men survived and were eventually rescued.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film's leaden treatment of this incredible story somehow sucks all the drama out of it.
Rotten: A World War II epic about the cruiser that carried the A-bomb, and was disastrously torpedoed, never finds its dramatic life.
Rotten: The script by Cam Cannon and co-producer Richard Rionda Del Castro is frustratingly unfocused, jumping from incident to incident while using Cage's flat, whispered narration to fill the gaps.
Rotten: This slapdash war movie doesn't do justice to its compelling subject matter.
Really iTunes!?!? $9.99 to rent! Fix it! This review is solely based off of iTunes poor performance
I am a sucker for WW2 movies, have watched almost all of them. This is the poorest quality WW2 story I have seen. The cinemetography is so unrealistic - reminds me of really old war movies where they used tiny models of ships. The acting is not realistic for the WW2 era. What a disappointment - and $9.99 to rent??? Don't bother with this one!
rent it for 10 bucks .?? you can practically buy it
