The construction and launch was rushed, the ship outfitted with inferior parts, and the crew believed the mission to be cursed. The Navy assigns Captain Alexei Vostrikov (Harrison Ford, who also served as an executive producer) to command the boat's shakedown cruise, with the plan of launching a test missile in the Arctic before moving to a strategic spot within striking distance of the United States.

title: Hart's War function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: MGM Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Bruce Willis, Colin Farrell, Terence Howard, Marcel Iures release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom “Hart’s War” is one of the most compelling character-driven movies to come along in years. Bruce Willis and Colin Farrell star as American prisoners of war in a German P.O.W. camp during the final months of World War II. As Col. McNamara and Lieut. Thomas Hart, respectively, the two create onscreen presences that are larger than life. While facing the hardships of the prison camp, McNamara and Hart deal with their own private agendas as well, and each in his own way finds a means of carrying on the war — even when these methods involve battling each other.

title: Pearl Harbor (Vista Series Director's Cut) function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Touchstone Pictures MPAA rating: R starring: Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett, Kate Beckinsale release year: 2001 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom “Pearl Harbor” is essentially the story of two buddies, Rafe McCawley (Ben Affleck) and Danny Walker (Josh Hartnett), and the military nurse (Kate Beckinsale) who is the love of their lives, played out against the horror that was the Japanese attack on the Hawaiian Islands on December 7, 1941. The story of this friendship, the loss and accidental betrayal of love, and the courage needed by the men who faced the devastation of the American military base provides the thread that pulls together a dozen different stories and give the movie its scope. However, the different story arcs get somewhat tangled and at times lost in the choreography of the battle and in the emotional fallout after the attack.

title: The Thin Red Line function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: 20th Century Fox Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Jim Caviezel, Ben Chaplin, Sean Penn, Elias Koteas, Nick Nolte, John Cusack, Woody Harrelson, George Clooney, John Savage, John C. Reilly, John Travolta release year: 1998 film rating: Four and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Terence Malick's THE THIN RED LINE is a unique war movie, a genuine art film, deeply personal, a dreamlike meditation on war, cerebral and unsentimental. In many ways, it's more like a musical composition than a movie; the way it is structured overall, as well as the clear decision to tell the story in movements rather than by conventional narrative are only two of the factors that set this film apart from all other war movies.

title: Enemy At The Gates function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Paramount Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Jude Law, Joseph Fiennes, Rachel Weisz, Bob Hoskins, Ed Harris, Ron Perlman, Eva Mattes, Gabriel Marshall-Thomson release year: 2001 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren With a cast this good and production values this rich, "Enemy at the Gates" should have been much better than it is. Director Jean-Jacques Annaud cowrote the script with Alain Godard, and they work overtime to convince us that they are not pro-Communist. This fastidious readjustment of the political material keeps getting in the way of what's going on, as does the infusion of a romance into wartime material. Finally, Annaud leans far too heavily on the stylistic precedent of "Saving Private Ryan" and not enough on the setting and time.
